The Wait is Over Auto Makers. Ioxus’ Titan™ Technology Delivers High Temp Cell

Heat is one of the quickest ways to damage or kill a cell entirely within a module. For over a decade, this has been top of mind for automotive manufacturers and a requirement for wider adoption of ultracapacitor adoption. WithTitan™ Technology, Ioxus has achieved an industry first.

This new line of cells offers the widest operating range on the market for both high and low temperatures. Designed with novel chemistry solutions for this market, Titan cells function properly at temperature ranges of -40 to 85°C, while delivering 2.7 volts. Maxwell’s DuraBlue™ technology, despite their performance claims, cannot survive under the same conditions. Ioxus’ Titan maintains a higher capacitance and a lower ESR at 80°C than Maxwell does at 65°C, as seen in the below graphs, and a far lower leakage current.

As Ioxus’ Director of Research Dr. George Lane, PhD explained, the 85°C performance benchmark required Ioxus to make significant advances in the fundamental science behind ultracapacitor performance. “Titan encompasses the fields of electrochemistry, surface chemistry and physical chemistry, just to name a few. Our innovations have allowed us to achieve one of the biggest technological advances in ultracapacitor technology since commercialization,” said Dr. Lane.

An expansion of the Ioxus iCAP® series, Titan’s breakthrough operating range isn’t just important to auto makers, but several other dynamic high duty cycle applications such as rail, harbor cranes, hybrid buses, and construction / heavy machinery apps. Over the coming months, we will be releasing more cells under the Titan line to further meet the needs of our existing and future customers.

  • 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...
