Magnet wire helps transformers and generators bring power reliably and consistently from the point of production to point of use. At Essex, we offer a broad range of copper and aluminum magnet wire products to meet the energy demands of a changing world. Whether your application is for any source of renewable energy like solar, wind, or hydro or simply to move it from point A to point B, we absolutely love the challenge. Contact us today for your next generator or transformer project.

Dry-Type transformers are sometimes the last link to an appliance or a user. They’ll charge your car battery, allow you to weld, or even step down voltage inside your apartment complex to different building sectors. By definition, they are cooled by air, which does not provide uniform cooling and will naturally create hot spots. Essex offers a wide range of products with different metals, enamels, and wrap materials with temperature ratings to match your applications. Let’s find the best solution together.View Products
Oil-filled transformers use mineral or ester oils as a medium to extract heat and keep their cores cool. The oil provides better cooling than air, however it doesn’t eliminate sections from running continuously or temporarily at higher temperatures. Therefore, our high temperature Formvar resin is best suited for all oil-filled transformers applications and especially on compact designs where hot spots are more frequent. Our Polyflex 225 further enhances the benefit with higher temperature capability. In fact, with the highest quality oils maxing out their temperature rating at 155°C, Essex wire still allows for a comfortable safety factor with a 220°C rating. For larger transformers, we can wrap conductors with your material of choice. No matter what your Energy application is, we have a solution for you.View Products
Large Power Transformers
Large Power Transformers bring new challenges for design Engineers as they seek to minimize electrical losses. Continuously Transposed Cable (CTC) is the product of choice for this application where multiple conductors are assembled together and transposed. Each order is customized to match transformer designs and customer requirements. Essex offers self-bonding configurations with standard or B-Stage epoxy. We can supply copper hardened to ease winding on your geometry and a full range of wrapping materials from Crepe papers to Perforated Aramide and Netting. We also offer single or multiple conductors wrapped with Crepe, Mica, Aramide, or Polyimide tape. Let us help you help you build your best machines.View Products
