Ioxus Launches Thin Cell iMOD Ultracapacitor Module Designs Worldwide
Company expands iMOD™ series with THiNCAP™ modules; now offers widest array of ultracapacitor technology in the industry


Oneonta, N.Y., August 7, 2012
 – Ioxus, Inc., a manufacturer of premium performance ultracapacitor technology for transportation, alternative energy, medical, industrial and consumer product markets, today announced it is offering thin cell ultracapacitor module designs worldwide for power conditioning and automated guided vehicle (AGV) applications. Ioxus THiNCAP™ iMOD™ modules consist of high power, thin, flexible ultracapacitor packs, instead of cylindrical cells, making them ideal for a variety of applications where small form factor is valued. The THiNCAP iMOD modules save space and weight, benefiting users with a reduced total cost of ownership as compared to batteries with longer life, higher cycle count, wider operational temperature range and reduced maintenance requirements.

With smaller footprint designs, the THiNCAP iMOD modules allow for flexible product development across a wide variety of markets. They are ideal for power conditioning and voltage sag compensation in short-term uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) to protect against voltage disruptions and ensure a smooth power supply to factory equipment and mission-critical applications. These applications can include telecommunications, silicon and food production, renewable energy, hospitals and pharmaceuticals. Additionally, AGVs and robotics benefit from the quick charge and long life of the Ioxus THiNCAP iMOD modules, cutting charge times in half and increasing productivity and operating time while eliminating the need for battery replacement or charging.

The THiNCAP iMOD modules improve complete systems with a lower total cost of ownership and more efficient design, while reducing system complexity. The cell design can also reduce cooling requirements as it allows for heat mitigation through double-sided cooling. Ioxus customers – including Toshiba Mitsubishi Electric Industrial System Corporation (TMEIC), RICOH, Sanyo Denki and General Electric – use the THiNCAP iMOD modules for numerous applications such as power conditioning, copy machines, peak power shaving systems and more.

Key features and benefits of the THiNCAP iMOD modules for AGV applications include:

  • Quick charge and long life increase productivity and reduce operation costs
  • Complete system available, including DC-DC, to fit a range of applications
  • Maintenance-free to reduce total cost of ownership
  • Restriction of hazardous substances (RoHS) compliant

Key features and benefits of the THiNCAP iMOD modules for power conditioning applications include:

  • Low equivalent series resistance (ESR) for higher efficiency and power capabilities
  • Front terminal products to replace or enhance common rack mount battery systems
  • Size compatibility for all common rack enclosures, including 19-inch, 23-inch wide and greater than 20-inches in depth
  • Highest possible energy content per shelf for a capacitor-based system with up to 40 kilowatt (10s) per 4U rack slot; provides up to 101 percent more energy than the competition
  • Maintenance-free to reduce total cost of ownership
  • RoHS compliant

“The THiNCAP iMOD modules provide customers with an ideal form factor and power capabilities to improve application performance, and allow Ioxus to expand into new global markets,” said Mark McGough, CEO of Ioxus. “By adding thin-cell ultracapacitor modules to Ioxus’ existing line of cylindrical cells and hybrid capacitors, we are now able to give customers the most extensive technology offerings in the industry to meet their application needs.”
