About Us

Who We Are

CTM Magnetics is an industry leader in providing power quality solutions for high power applications. Power quality is a term used to describe the quality of electricity being used. At CTM Magnetics, we manufacture products that improve the quality of power used in large industrial applications. Improved power quality leads to more energy efficient systems, better system reliability, and greater longevity, all of which leads to a lower capital investment (CAPEX), and operating cost (OPEX).

CTM products include air and liquid cooled sine wave filters, passive harmonic filters, line / load reactors, high frequency transformers, and much more. Most of these products are used in motor drive applications (see graphics below). Due to the widespread use of motor drives, CTM Magnetics serves a wide range of industries including Oil & Gas, Solar, Wind, HVAC & Chillers, Energy Storage & Utilities, Manufacturing, Military, and many more.

Our History

Our History

CTM was founded in Arizona in 1976 by a Motorola engineer who wanted to design and build line and switching frequency transformers for Motorola. In 1981, the company was purchased by its current ownership.

During the 1980’s and 1990’s CTM Magnetics carved out a growing business in line and switching frequency custom engineered magnetics. Our products used standard components available to anyone during these years; however, our engineering skills, customer service, and quality production team helped build the business to a sustainable level where investment in innovation was possible. Our markets from 1980 through 2004 were medical electronics, professional audio, battery chargers, and some military products.

In 2004, our product development engineers accepted a project to design an inductor on the output of a three phase, 2 kHz variable speed drive delivering 480 V at 1,200 A to a motor. Through a trial and error design method, CTM engineering finally conceived of our first THISS Technology® filter inductor design. The new inductor technology performed brilliantly under the customer’s 1,200 A test, and CTM Magnetics applied for its first patent.
