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.

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...
