History

Today, the use of enameled litz wires in the field of electrical components is just as old as it is complex. In the first half of the last century the range of litz wire usage was consistent with the technology level of the day. For example, in 1923 the first medium frequency radio broadcast was made possible by the litz wire in the coils. In the 1940's litz wire was used in the first ultrasonic diagnostic systems and basic RFID systems. In the 1950's litz wire was used in USW chokes. With the explosive growth of new electronic components in the second half of the 20th century, litz wire usage also expanded rapidly. 

Elektrisola began supply of high frequency litz wire in 1951 to meet increasing customer demand for innovative quality products. Elektriola's litz wire was quickly incorporated into new developments such as ferrite core chokes for electromagnetic lighting ballasts in the 1960's as well as magnetic resonance imaging systems developed in the 1970's and 1980's, and high frequency switching power supplies in the 1990's. 

Since the beginning, Elektrisola has demonstrated an active partnership role with its customers in joint development of new and innovative litz wire solutions. This close customer support continues today, with new litz wire applications in the fields of renewable energy, e-mobility, and medical technologies being developed today for use in future products.
