Extinguish the Flame

Throwback to the Original Induction Innovations Products

Friday December 18, 2020

This year marks the 20th anniversary of Induction Innovations and to celebrate, we are closing out this year with a tribute to the original Inductor and Mini-Ductor units.

Thanks to customer feedback and photos we have received, we know these units are still out there and in use today! That’s 20 years of power!

Let’s look back at the first Inductor and Mini-Ductor units that Induction Innovations ever produced!

The Original Inductor: Inductor 2000

Named after the year it was introduced, the Inductor 2000 was the first model ever produced in the Inductor Series Product Line.

The Inductor 2000 model offered 120 volts, 15 amps, and had an output of 1700 watts of power.

It came with the Fast-Off Pad and Concentrator attachments which were hardwired into the power supply.

The Inductor Deluxe

Another older unit that we often get questions about is the Inductor DLX or Inductor Deluxe.

This unit offers 120 volts / 15 amps and has an output of 1700 watts. It came with the original Fast-Off Pad, Concentrator, and Glass Blaster attachments.

The most frequently asked question we receive surrounding the DLX and older units is, “Will the current Inductor attachments work on the DLX?” And the answer to that is no. If you have a DLX unit, you can send it to us for a retrofit, in which we can make the new attachments fit the DLX but none of the old attachments would work. Another option is to purchase a brand-new unit that would have the new circuitry and more power.

To learn more about our current Inductor Series units, see our Inductor Series Model Comparison Chart.

The Original Mini-Ductor: MD-600

Let’s move on to the Mini-Ductor!

Did you know? Induction Innovations was the first to create the handheld induction heater for the automotive repair market!

Introduced in 2004, the Mini-Ductor MD-600 featured 1000 watts of power and was housed in PVC Plumbing. Much like the Mini-Ductor II, the MD-600 was push-button activated and fastened coils with the thumb screws however it did not have LED illumination or enclosed housing.

To see how the Mini-Ductors have evolved over time, check out the Mini-Ductor Model Comparison Chart. Or watch this video of our Marketing Manager, Beth, go through the latest evolutions of the product line all the way up to the Mini-Ductor Venom HP (the highest-powered Mini-Ductor yet).

Quality, Made in the USA

It’s thanks to the customers who have sent in photos of their older units that we’re able to say these products are standing the test of time. We take pride in manufacturing the best quality product possible, which is why all our manufacturing is in-house in Elgin, IL. Read more about our manufacturing process on our blog.

If you have an older unit that you still use today, we would love to see it! Tag us on social media #InductionInnovations or email us at
