Ismaning, 31st July, 2020: THEVA has succeeded in doubling the current carrying capacity of its Pro-Line superconductors. In test series on production lines, standard processes were used to produce tape conductors over more than 400 m long, which carry more than 1000 A transport current at 12 mm width and 75 μm thickness, which corresponds to a current density of 1100 A/mm². The record level was even 1350 A, i.e. 1500 A/mm², under standard measuring conditions in liquid nitrogen at 77 K (-196°C).
