Electric aircrafts are quickly being developed with powering methods of batteries, power cells, and ultracapacitors which are reliant on copper windings.

Construction Equipment

One of the largest EVs in the world is a dump truck that is powered with a 700 kWh battery pack and a copper wire wound synchronous electric motor.

Truck

Electric Trucks, like traditional EVs, are powered with a traction motor that generates its power through wound magnet wire.

Train

Using electricity to power electric motors and drive the wheels to provide locomotion allows for trains to be quite efficient whether it is by third-rail, overhead cables, or stored batteries.

Farming Equipment

From all-electric twin-disc fertilizers to farm tractors, electrification is helping farmers do more work, with smaller engines, and increase their sustainability.

Motorcycle

The new generation of e-motorcycles replaces the gas fuel with either batteries or fuel cells that help drive a traction motor, not an internal combustion engine.

SUV

All electric vehicles replace the internal combustion engine with an electric motor that is wound with copper wire. Instead of gas and exhaust emissions, the charged battery pack emits no greenhouse gas.

E-Bike

These products use a battery-powered motor to assist the rider. It is wound with copper wire but is not consistently propelling.

Prop Airplane

Due to the shorter distances traveled and lighter weights to support, the electric motor technology being updated in other, larger, aircrafts have had mainstream use in prop planes for nearly 30 years.

Semi-Truck

Using two-to-six lithium-ion batteries and a copper wound traction motor, long-haul trucking may be the next industry to revolutionize as distance and strength are increasing exponentially.

Ferry

Ships of all sizes are shifting from diesel engines to battery-powered, including some of the more iconic brands, like Maid of the Mist.

Commercial Vehicle

Shipping of goods within a city sector has been made more eco-friendly as vans and trucks can not only use a traction motor for power but also regenerative breaking to re-charge while in use.

Bus

A bus is a marriage of the technology developed for commercial vehicles, tractor trailers, and trains. It can be powered internally or externally, haul passengers inside a set time and distance, and remain eco-friendly.

Few markets require technology that operates under more intensity than commercial transportation. Many applications are used in highly demanding environments and, often, safety of the occupant is a key component in design.

Technology has advanced the electrification of many products and Essex magnet wire is leading the way in much of that evolution.
