Connection Technologies for Litz Wires
Due to the many stranded nature of litz wires, terminating them often poses a challenge. The following table advises the connection technologies which are generally applicable for various insulations. Only the most important factors of influence have been classified. Many others, such as enamel type and insulation thickness of the single strands, heat resistance of the additional insulation, the stranding construction (tight/compact or wide/flexible), have not been addressed.
