Thin-Film, Prismatic Cells Expand the Ioxus Product Line

A few weeks ago, we introduced Ioxus’ thin-film prismatic, high-energy cells at the PCIM Europe show in Germany. These cells are part of a new product line that stems from our acquisition of Power Systems, Ltd., a Japanese company that specialized in flexible, slim-pack electric double layer capacitors (EDLCs). Watch the video below from PCIM to see and hear more about the latest addition to the Ioxus ultracapacitor family:

These cells allow Ioxus to manufacture high-power, high-energy modules. We can now provide modules with up to 260 volts in a small package, which can be used for energy delivery for high current peak shaving. These flexible ultracapacitor energy solutions are used in industrial and medical applications, such as voltage sag compensation or MRIs, as well as in transportation and manufacturing applications. Thin-film cell solutions are particularly useful in parts of the world where field hospitals or factories cannot get the smooth voltage input or peak current necessary from the grid to power their machines. In such cases, power can be extracted from a bank of ultracapacitor modules instead.

The new laminated packs add to Ioxus’ technology portfolio by offering customers an improved way of using ultracapacitors, as well as a wider, more flexible product range. And while laminated pack cells typically offer two to three times more power in energy than cylindrical cells at the cell level, don’t count cylindrical cells out yet. They still are useful in mobile applications and are a less expensive option for energy storage applications. Having both flat and cylindrical cells in our repertoire allows Ioxus to offer the best technology to meet the various needs of our customers, and we look forward to more developments to come from our Power Systems acquisition.

  • Ioxus uSTART® Battery Replacement for Heavy Equipment Increases Starting Reliability

    ONEONTA, N.Y., April 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Ioxus, Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of ultracapacitors and energy storage products, announced today that the 24V uSTART® battery support system is now being offered as the heavy equipment industry's only drop-in replacement product that needs no special wiring. Using two group 31 batteries in series, with one 24V uSTART in parallel, users can replace their 4D battery in heavy equipment.

    The ultracapacitor-based product is designed with smart power electronics to assist in starting engines up to 50L for large off-road equipment.  Using the available Smartphone Bluetooth app, once the uSTART is connected to the batteries, users can look at the voltage of the batteries, the charge level of uSTART, initiate a jump start without connecting any wires, or put the unit into maintenance mode for safe removal or repairs.

    The goal of the uSTART system is to provide the vehicle with a start, no matter the condition of the existing batteries or external temperature. If the batteries run too low duread more...
