High density moulded supercapacitor module targets intrinsically safe applications

August 19, 2015 // By Paul Buckley
Supercapacitor manufacturer VINATech has launched a series of high density moulded supercapacitor modules.  The EDLC series offers a range of 5 V,5.4 V and 6 V Super capacitors in a sealed epoxy moulded format.

The VINATech EDLC module range reduces humidity and leakage with the benefit of reducing potential shorting issues which makes this series more attractive for intrinsically safe environments.

The devices are suitable for wave soldering and is currently available in 0.5 Farad, 1.5 Farad and 5 Farad options. The 6 V series utilizes the VINATech patented 3 V series enabling extended working life compared with standard series with options to enable users to work at 85°C with de-rated voltage of 2.3 V. The RoHS compliant E series is suitable for short term peak power assist applications, for fast charge, last gasp and battery back up in telematics and IoT applications.
