The Repulsive/Attractive World of Maglev
Learn how Litz wire powers magnetic levitation
An ancient Greek legend attributes the discovery of magnetism to a shepherd boy who stepped on a rock that attracted the nails in his shoes and the metal tip of his staff. He stumbled on a lodestone, a naturally magnetized piece of the mineral magnetite. Lodestones were sought after in ancient times for their mysterious properties. For instance, a lodestone suspended from a string orients itself to Earth’s north and south magnetic poles, which made lodestones useful for primitive navigation. Today, magnets are used in endless applications ranging from toys and consumer products to medical, scientific and industrial equipment. But perhaps one of the most intriguing applications involves magnetic levitation, also known as maglev.

Maglev technology that has best captured the public’s attention lies with trains and people movers, discussed below. However, maglev tech has many applications. Read about several of the most economically significant applications and of the role Litz wire plays in many of them.
