Panasonic Electronic Components Gold Cap Capacitors
Panasonic is proud to introduce three new additions to the capacitor product line, the EEC-EP, ER, and RG Series Electric Double Layer (Gold Cap) Capacitors. The EEC-EP, ER, and RG Series Electric Double Layer Capacitors (Gold Caps) from Panasonic are among the smallest in the industry and represent possible alternatives to batteries. Compliant with RoHS directive.
Panasonic Electric Double Layer Capacitors, known as "Gold Capacitors", offer the highest volumetric efficiency of all capacitor technologies. Often compared to second batteries, EDLC's
are storage cells that utilize the absorption/release reaction of ions,
whereas batteries rely on a chemical reaction to produce electric
current. Gold capacitors have no limit to the number of charge
and discharge cycles they can sustain and do not need a charging
circuit, thus repeated rapid charge and discharge cycles are acceptable.
Panasonic offers several Gold capacitor series in the
following configurations: stacked coin (SG,F,NF,SE,SD,RG series), radial lead
(HW,HZ,AL series), and surface mount (EN,EM,EP,ER series).
