Our products

Product category: Super Capacitors / Double Layer Capacitors

5.0 Volt Modules

The 5.0-volt small cell modules are available in 1.5 and 2.5 farad versions and are suitable for applications that require pulse power and small amounts of capacitance.

These modules provide ultra-low equivalent series resistance (ESR) and long lifetime with up to 500,000 duty cycles,* ensuring reliability and minimal maintenance in deployed systems. These modules are typically used in automated meter reading (AMR) applications, among various others that require compact, high performance energy storage. Comprised of two ultracapacitor cells in a series, the 5.0-volt modules achieve higher voltage in a single package and contribute to reduced integration costs.

Compliance with RoHS and REACH requirements gives customers the confidence that their choice fulfills current regulatory standards, with the added value of project cost reduction and improved time-to-market.

16 Volt Small Module

Maxwell Technologies’ 16V small cell ultracapacitor module provides energy storage and power delivery in a compact, cost-effective module. The modules are specifically engineered to provide cost-effective solutions for wind turbine pitch control of 1.5MW and smaller, small UPS systems, telecommunications and other lighter-duty industrial electronics applications.

The 16V module is based upon the high-reliability, 350F radial D-Cell®. In addition to meeting or exceeding demanding industrial application requirements for both watt-hours of energy storage and watts of power delivery per kilogram, all of these products will perform reliably for more than 500,000 discharge-recharge cycles.

The modules can be series connected up to 750V and/or parallel connected for higher energy requirements. The easy-to-connect, standard module allows system designers to focus upon use of the power and energy, rather than on how to assemble cells.

48 Volt Modules - With DuraBlue ® Technology

Our industry-leading 48V module now includes the benefits of our new DuraBlue® Advanced Shock and Vibration Cell Technology.

The new module has been tested to meet and exceed the industry’s highest shock (IEC 60068-2-27 and 2-29) and vibration (ISO 16750-3, Tables 12 and 14) ratings for ultracapacitor modules, exceeding the most demanding testing requirements for transportation applications such as in hybrid buses, particularly in China. The enhanced module has been validated through several months of sampling with selected customers and is immediately available.

Maxwell’s DuraBlue® Advanced Shock and Vibration Technology is the company’s latest advance in ultracapacitor reliability and performance. It combines Maxwell’s unique dry electrode formation and manufacturing process with a patent-pending cell structure design, resulting in a significant increase in vibration immunity of as much as 300 percent and in shock immunity of as much as 400 percent versus most comparable competitive offerings. The new module will offer advanced capacitor management system options (CMS) for improved reliability as well as safety enhancements which include a redundant over-voltage alarm, while maintaining existing product life characteristics.
