Ioxus Expands iCAP® Series With High Temperature Titan™ technology for Unrivaled Operating Range
ONEONTA, N.Y.- Ioxus, a manufacturer of premium performance ultracapacitor technology for use in transportation, industrial and energy applications, today redefined high temperature energy storage capacity with its high temperature 1250 Farad (F) cells with Titan™ technology. Featuring best in class stability, endurance and cycleability, Ioxus’ products continue to outperform competitors such as Maxwell in all applications, specifically automotive.
Ioxus’ Titan™ technology meets one of the key requirements that automotive customers have had for over a decade to comfortably use ultracapacitors; a system with a wider operating range that meets both cold and high temperature standards. Ioxus’ newest line of cells, designed with novel chemistry solutions for this market, function properly at temperature ranges of -40 to 85°C, and deliver 2.7 volts at these temperatures compared to Maxwell’s DuraBlue™ technology, which cannot survive under the same conditions, as seen in [figure 1], despite their operating range claims. Maxwell underperforms at 65°C when compared to Titan at 80°C, which has lower equivalent series resistance (ESR) and capacitance fade, higher initial capacitance, and far lower leakage current than Maxwell – see [figure 2].
“This 85°C performance benchmark required us to make significant advances in the fundamental science behind ultracapacitor performance. Titan™ encompasses the fields of electrochemistry, surface chemistry and physical chemistry, just to name a few. Our innovations have allowed us to achieve one of the biggest technological advances in ultracapacitor technology since commercialization,” said Dr. George Lane, PhD, Director of Research for Ioxus.
“We’re all extremely proud to be introducing Ioxus’ Titan™ technology to the ultracapacitor market,” said Chad Hall, VP of Marketing and Product Management, Ioxus. “These patent pending high temperature cells are a game-changer for the market and far exceed the capabilities currently offered by our competitors. Titan™ offers unprecedented electrochemistry stability to optimize the performance in dynamic, high duty cycle applications such as automotive, rail, harbor cranes, hybrid buses, as well as construction and heavy machinery apps. The Titan line of products is designed to provide customers with the confidence that choosing Ioxus will ensure their products will be durable and high performing even in the most demanding environments.”
Titan™ follows the release announcing results of an extensive durability test of its flagship hybrid bus product, the 48V / 165F module.
Ioxus manufactures high performance ultracapacitor technology for transportation, alternative energy, medical, industrial and consumer product markets. The company offers the broadest range of cell styles in the industry, from 100 Farads to 3,000 Farads, with both iCAP® cylindrical and THiNCAP® pouch cell form factors. With our proprietary mixes and coating processes, Ioxus makes a superior electrode for ultracapacitors with higher power and energy density compared to other ultracapacitors. Ioxus designs and manufactures smaller, lighter weight iMOD® modules and the new iMOD X-Series™ family of module systems. Ioxus is headquartered in Oneonta, N.Y., with sales, service and quick-delivery inventory in Shanghai, China. For more information, visit Ioxus and follow Ioxus on Twitter @Ioxus.

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...
