Ioxus, a manufacturer of premium performance ultracapacitor technology for transportation, alternative energy, medical, industrial and consumer product markets, today unveiled three new modules: the iMOD® 16V/500F, 80V/12F and 48V/165F, which all deliver higher power and energy densities as compared with competitive products. Notably, the iMOD® 16V/500F provides power density up to 95 percent greater than modules currently on the market.
“We’re seeing global customers in the automotive, wind energy, industrial and hybrid bus sectors strive for greater efficiency and higher performance with their systems, making the need for flexible and powerful products more important than ever,” said Mark McGough, CEO of Ioxus. “Here at Ioxus, we invest significant resources into our product design and are proud to have the most advanced R&D in the industry. We are always striving to create products that provide the technology, form and function best-suited to address our customers’ needs and the pain points of key industries.”
The iMOD® 16V/500F, 80V/12F and 48V/165F have several applications integral to the success of global industries, including in stop/start transportation systems, regenerative energy capture, grid power storage systems, backup power/UPS and robotics.
In addition to addressing needs of key industries, these modules were designed with the customer experience in mind. The iMOD® 80V/12F can be ordered as a pre-assembled field replacement unit (FRU), eliminating up to 10 hours of labor and reducing the opportunity for assembly error. The iMOD® 16V/500F has customizable end plates to fit a variety of alternate mounting configurations based on a customer’s need. Additionally, the iMOD® 48V/165F has better thermal performance than competitors, leading to long life in high power, high cycle applications.
Technical highlights of these new products in the iMOD® line include:
These Ioxus modules are more efficient than batteries, allowing for hundreds of thousands of cycles, under a wide range of climate conditions, with minimum changes in performance. The unique design features make these new additions to the iMOD® line both rugged and reliable. As with all Ioxus products, these new iMODs are optimized for highest performance and maximize the value for the end customer.
Additional Ioxus Information:
Ioxus manufactures premium performance ultracapacitor technology for transportation, alternative energy, medical, industrial and consumer product markets. The company offers the highest power and energy density ultracapacitors and hybrid capacitors ranging in size from 100 Farads to 3,000 Farads, with both iCAP® cylindrical and THiNCAP® laminated pouch cells available. Ioxus ultracapacitors have higher power compared to other ultracapacitors, with smaller, lighter weight iMOD® modules and systems. Its family of ultracapacitors is uniquely optimized for high performance with low resistance, ideal for delivering high power bursts for acceleration, energy recapture, peak load shaving and high power applications.

Ultracapacitor-powered uSTART™ available for Class 3 - 6 Vehicles
ONEONTA, N.Y., March 28, 2016 -- Ioxus, Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of ultracapacitors and energy storage products, announced today that the uSTART™ engine starting system is now being offered as the industry's only drop-in replacement product that needs no special wiring. The Ioxus ultracapacitor-based product is designed to do all of the things that competitive products do not, such as increasing the vehicle bus voltage by greater than 10% during crank, reducing cranking time for more than 20%, reduce peak current to the starter by more than 15%, reduce the cycling seen by the battery by more than 40%, increasing starter life by more than 30%, and provide a built-in jump start system that will allow users to charge the capacitor from adjacent "dead" batteries and eliminate stranded trucks. All without any special wiring—simply drop-in uSTART in place of an existing battery!
The uSTART system from Ioxus is a two-terminal product, eliminating the rewiring required by competitive engine start modules. One of the existing read more...
