Ioxus, Inc. announced its new iCAP™ 3,000 Farad (F) ultracapacitor, the first size in a new family of cell products. Ioxus states that its iCAP ultracapacitors represent the lowest weight, lowest equivalent series resistance (ESR) and highest power density available in the market for energy storage cells. With the widespread availability of Ioxus iCAP ultracapacitor cells, manufacturers gain unmatched durability and adaptability to support a wide array of applications.
"As our customers in automotive, energy and other sectors push their offerings toward greater efficiency and higher performance, the importance of 3,000F ultracapacitor cells increases," said Mark McGough, CEO of Ioxus. "By lowering the ESR, increasing the power density beyond the most competitive product available, and making the product rugged enough to pass shock and vibe tests that competing products cannot, the Ioxus iCAP series delivers what no one else can: a more powerful, more rugged cell that adapts to myriad uses."
Among those uses are transportation drive, grid power storage, regenerative energy capture, backup power and uninterruptible power supply (UPS), ride-through, power conditioning, and renewable energy systems. In all of these areas, the Ioxus iCAP 3,000F ultracapacitor delivers the heaviest duty cycles possible and the longest life, due to minimal temperature rise.
The Ioxus iCAP 3,000F ultracapacitor is well suited for prototype-to-production support, facilitating low ESR bus bar connections with the largest achievable contact areas. The double holes are off axis, preventing cell damage during assembly and making the Ioxus iCAP 3,000F ultracapacitor durable enough for even the toughest applications.
"Ioxus ultracapacitors provide our customers with a cost-effective energy storage solution for many renewable energy applications," said Gabriel Tse of GT Advanced Energy Technology (Shanghai), Ltd., an Ioxus ultracapacitor distributor. "Ioxus’ new generation of ultracapacitors offers an ease of integration and increased energy density unmatched by anyone else in the market."
Among the features of the Ioxus iCAP 3,000F ultracapacitor are many market differentiators, including: weldable, double female threaded terminals; largest diameter terminals; single terminal design for bolted or welded connection; lowest cell ESR; and Mil spec tumble test rated.
Ioxus iCAP cells are designed for high shock and vibration applications such as heavy equipment or rail. The iCAP 3,000F ultracapacitors offer a 2.7V working voltage and adhere to industry standard footprints.
