Ioxus expands iCAP series for unrivaled efficiency and durability; further raises the bar for ultracapacitor performance
ONEONTA, N.Y.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Ioxus, a manufacturer of premium performance ultracapacitor technology for the automotive and transportation industries, today introduced the new 1200 Farad (F) cell to its portfolio of high performance ultracapacitors. The 1200F cell is a high-powered energy solution that optimizes the performance of lead acid, AGM and Lithium Ion batteries in cars, tractors and motorbikes, enabling improved start/stop technology performance and serving as a reliable and cost-effective feature of hybrid engine vehicles. With the widespread availability of Ioxus iCAP® ultracapacitor cells, manufacturers gain unmatched durability and adaptability to support a wide array of applications.
“The popularity of hybrid vehicles is increasing and US auto manufacturers are now embracing the emerging ultracapacitor use, which has been successful in Europe and Asia.”
The 1200F cell plays a key role in several applications within the automotive industry, including: engine starting and cranking; transportation drive systems; and regenerative energy capture. Engineers will appreciate its structural features, which were designed for easy and error-free assembly. The cell was designed with high-shock and vibration applications in mind and has a wide variety of technical features, including:
– 2.7V working voltage
– 84% higher power density than comparable products
– Lowest cell ESR on market: 25 mOhms AC and 30 mOhms DC
– Highest power density: 25 kW/kg or 32 kW/L
– Long life cycle: 1 million + cycles
“With the introduction of the 1200F cell, Ioxus once again demonstrates its dedication to developing products, not only with the highest technical performance, but also with the customer’s needs in mind. The 1200F cell is the ideal source for micro-hybrid & stop/start systems in the automotive market,” said Mark McGough, CEO, Ioxus. “The popularity of hybrid vehicles is increasing and US auto manufacturers are now embracing the emerging ultracapacitor use, which has been successful in Europe and Asia.”
Ioxus announces the 1200F cell following the successful launch of three new modules, the iMOD® 80V/12F, 16V/500F and 48V/165F, in March 2013.

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...
