Ioxus’ New Ultracap Modules Extend Application Possibilities

Today, Ioxus released some product news that points to where the market for alternative energy is going and how quickly it will get there. Our announcement of the Ioxus 16V/58F iMOD ultracapacitor module series delivers on several capabilities for which the alternative energy market has been clamoring. It provides high performance, high efficiency and high reliability in a ready-to-use package that undercuts existing market prices.

Manufacturers working with wind turbine pitch control, starting systems, automotive subsystems, backup power, power conditioning for renewable energy systems, and many other applications are making great advances in hybrid drives and clean technologies. They need rugged, compact, compliant and affordable energy storage to take them the rest of the way.

Ultracapacitors remain the best option for these organizations. Ultracaps require the least amount of management, survive the most extreme temperature ranges and last double or quadruple the lifespan of competing battery technologies. Now, ultracaps also:

  • Parallel common battery sizes
  • Eliminate the need for custom design management
  • Deliver strong environmental protection
  • Install easily
  • Maintain better constant current

The release of the iMOD ultracapacitor module series is significant news for numerous industries in which manufacturers have a vision for better alternative energy designs. Concrete technological advances will help those businesses turn their visions into live applications.

  • uSTART® Lead-Free Replacement for Truck Batteries

    ONEONTA, N.Y.Jan. 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Ioxus uSTART® has received two fleet industry awards for sustainability by eliminating lead-acid batteries with its ultracapacitor-based, drop-in battery replacement.

    "With uSTART, fleets not only realize the benefits of improved starting reliability, there are equally important and real sustainability improvements from lead waste reduction," said Chad Hall, executive vice president and co-founder of Ioxus. "By replacing one of the batteries on a vehicle with a uSTART module, up to 15 fewer batteries are needed over the lifetime of the vehicle. This translates into 1,000 pounds of lead that will never need to be disposed of or allowed to affect groundwater."

    EU legislation on batteries is embodied in the European Battery Directive.  Its objective is to contribute to the preservation and improvement of environmental quality by minimizing the negative impact of batteries and battery waste.  As these preservation efforts expand, sustainable technologies develop to manage and mitigate these risks.

    Replacing a lead-acid battery with uSTART in a typical commercial vehicle creates measurable environmental benefits:
