Ultracapacitor Cells with Higher Power Densities
Ioxus Inc. has launched a new family of large cell prismatic electrochemical double layer capacitors (EDLC) for utility and transportation applications that are lower in cost for the overall system design.
Ioxus Inc., developers and manufacturers of ultracapacitor technologies for a wide range of energy storage markets, has launched a new family of large cell prismatic electrochemical double layer capacitors (EDLC) for utility and transportation applications that are lower in cost for the overall system design. The 1,000-, 3,000- and 5,000-Farad ultracapacitors are smaller in size and are cited to provide 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°C 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.
