Ioxus, Inc. launched a new family of large cell prismatic electrochemical double layer capacitors (EDLC) for transportation and utility applications that are lower in cost for the overall system design. The 1,000-, 3,000- and 5,000-F ultracapacitors are smaller in size with increased energy and power density compared to products of other industry players.
A wide range of high-power applications, such as transportation, electric utility, material handling, industrial bridge power and renewable energy generation require low-cost and long-operating-life energy storage systems for optimal performance. Ioxus’ high-performance, environmentally safe products can quickly store and deliver energy in these highly demanding applications, providing a high-cycle life and a wide temperature operating range from -40 to +70°C.
Ioxus EDLCs can be used as sole energy storage devices or can be combined with other types of energy storage devices, such as batteries or fuel cells, to meet the user power demand requirements. In this combination, ultracapacitors expand the system’s charge and discharge capabilities into shorter response times, extend the life of other, lower-power elements and open up new options for energy storage applications. Unlike competitors, Ioxus’ ultracapacitors are particularly suited for applications where weight or volume of systems is important because of their high-power densities.
Ioxus’ new 1,000-, 3,000- and 5,000-F ultracapacitors start at the following prices for low volume: 1,000F, 2.7V ultracapacitors – $62; 3,000F, 2.7V ultracapacitors – $90; and 5,000F, 2.7V ultracapacitors – $175.
"Energy storage and power delivery technology are enabling the rapid growth of energy generation and cleantech markets worldwide," said Chad Hall, COO of Ioxus. "Ioxus will continue to aggressively expand its ultracapacitor product line to capitalize on this global opportunity to provide the best high-density, high-performance and low-cost energy storage option on the market."
