160V Ultracapacitor Module

Maxwell Technologies 160V Ultracapacitor module is rated for 160V and 5.8F capacitance. The 160V Ultracapacitor module features passive balancing and a -40°C to 65°C temperature range. Applications range from wind pitch control for wind energy sytems, short-term UPS, to other renewable energy systems.

Ultracapacitors store and discharge energy very quickly and are being used in thousands of different applications and considered in a host of future applications. Ultracapacitors complement a primary energy source like an internal combustion engine, fuel cell or battery, which cannot repeatedly provide quick bursts of power.

Maxwell Technologies Ultracapacitor Modules

Maxwell Technologies Ultracapacitor Modules are specifically designed for heavy duty applications such as automotive subsystems, hybrid vehicle drive trains, telecommunications and industrial applications. Ultracapacitor Modules from Maxwell Technologies offer customers a wide range of choices to meet their energy storage and power delivery requirements that require the lowest equivalent series resistance and highest efficiency available. Maxwell Ultracapacitors perform reliably for more than one million discharge-recharge cycles. The cells used in the modules operate at 2.7 volts, enabling them to store more energy and deliver more power per unit volume than any other commercially available ultracapacitor products.

Maxwell Technologies Ultracapacitor Series

Maxwell Technologies Ultracapacitor family of products, which includes the PC10 and HC Series, works with the batteries in applications that require a constant low power discharge for continual function, but a pulse power for peak loads. These ultracapacitors are highly useful in applications requiring a pulse of energy that cannot be efficiently provided by a battery or power supply alone. The devices' ability to relieve batteries of peak power functions extends battery life and reduces battery size and cost. Maxwell's PC10 and HC Series are also ideal sources of back-up power and provide short-term power availability, allowing critical information and functions to remain available during dips, sags, and outages in a power supply or battery change. Maxwell's PC10 and HC Series have a cycle life of 500,000 cycles, and like all ultracapacitor products, are capable of accepting charges at the identical rate of discharge. Available in three board mounting configurations, both PC10 and HC cells can be rapidly charged and discharged multiple times, making them among the most energy efficient, environmentally friendly, and cost-effective ways to store energy.

Maxwell Technologies HC Series Ultracapacitors

Maxwell Technologies HC Series Ultracapacitors / Supercapacitors feature ultra-low internal resistance (down to 5mΩ) and two-pin radial lead. With a 500,000 cycle, 10-year life capability, the RoHS compliant HC Series is resistant against reverse polarity. The Maxwell HC Series Ultracapacitors / Supercapacitors are useful for consumer electronics, industrial and automation, portable power tools, renewable energy systems, and short term UPS and telecom systems.
NEW! 1F and 3.3F versions.

Maxwell K2 Series 650F - 3400F Ultracapacitors

Maxwell has expanded the K2 Series Ultracapacitor product line to include 2.85V 3400F capacitors. The K2 2.85V 3400F supercaps use DuraBlue™ Shock and Vibration Technology. Maxwell K2 Series 650F - 3,000F Ultracapacitors / Supercapacitors provide 2.7V with an ultra-low internal resistance and the highest power performance available. The K2 Ultracapacitors feature a cylindrical design and an electrostatic storage capability that can cycle a million charges and discharges without performance degradation. The Maxwell K2 Series 650F - 3,000F Ultracapacitors / Supercapacitors cells are useful for automotive subsystems, medical devices, UPS/backup power, and wind turbine pitch control, as well as many other applications which require a pulse of energy that cannot be efficiently provided by a battery or power supply alone (can work in tandem with batteries). Mounting Kit available.

Maxwell Ultracapacitor Modules

Maxwell Technologies offers Ultracapacitor / Supercapacitor Modules for a wide range of industrial, transportation, and heavy duty applications. The 15-volt ultracapacitor is designed to provide cost-effective solutions for UPS, telecommunications, and other lighter duty industrial electronics applications (500,000 discharge-recharge cycles). Maxwell's ultracapacitors / supercapacitors are available in 16-, 48-, and 75-Volt modules offering over 1 million duty cycles. These ultracapacitor modules are useful for a diverse range of energy storage and power delivery requirements, such as automotive, transportation, UPS, renewable energy, telecommunications, mining, heavy duty transportation and equipment, as well as applications operating under harsh temperature, humidity, and vibration conditions.
