Litz wire, designed to mitigate proximity and skin effects, can deliver great efficiency in high frequency applications. Over 160 wires are woven together to create our 16 AWG Litz Wire. This make-up evenly distributes current, neutralizing the eddy currents that cause loss in high frequency applications. For projects involving ultrasonic devices, generators, transformers, or electromagnetic induction, litz wire is the ideal choice.

This wire is comprised of 162 strands of magnetic wire, insulated by solderable polyurethane with a polyamide overcoat. It is RoHS compliant and meets the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) standards for size, insulation, and temperature resistance. Choose from six different sizes to best suit your needs. Looking for a custom solution? Explore our wire services.
