Ioxus Expands iCAP® Series Ultracapacitor: More Power, More Efficient

Ioxus expands iCAP series for unrivaled efficiency and durability; further raises the bar for ultracapacitor performance

ONEONTA, N.Y.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Ioxus, a manufacturer of premium performance ultracapacitor technology for the automotive and transportation industries, today introduced the new 1200 Farad (F) cell to its portfolio of high performance ultracapacitors. The 1200F cell is a high-powered energy solution that optimizes the performance of lead acid, AGM and Lithium Ion batteries in cars, tractors and motorbikes, enabling improved start/stop technology performance and serving as a reliable and cost-effective feature of hybrid engine vehicles. With the widespread availability of Ioxus iCAP® ultracapacitor cells, manufacturers gain unmatched durability and adaptability to support a wide array of applications.

“The popularity of hybrid vehicles is increasing and US auto manufacturers are now embracing the emerging ultracapacitor use, which has been successful in Europe and Asia.”

The 1200F cell plays a key role in several applications within the automotive industry, including: engine starting and cranking; transportation drive systems; and regenerative energy capture. Engineers will appreciate its structural features, which were designed for easy and error-free assembly. The cell was designed with high-shock and vibration applications in mind and has a wide variety of technical features, including:

– 2.7V working voltage
– 84% higher power density than comparable products
– Lowest cell ESR on market: 25 mOhms AC and 30 mOhms DC
– Highest power density: 25 kW/kg or 32 kW/L
– Long life cycle: 1 million + cycles

“With the introduction of the 1200F cell, Ioxus once again demonstrates its dedication to developing products, not only with the highest technical performance, but also with the customer’s needs in mind. The 1200F cell is the ideal source for micro-hybrid & stop/start systems in the automotive market,” said Mark McGough, CEO, Ioxus. “The popularity of hybrid vehicles is increasing and US auto manufacturers are now embracing the emerging ultracapacitor use, which has been successful in Europe and Asia.”

Ioxus announces the 1200F cell following the successful launch of three new modules, the iMOD® 80V/12F, 16V/500F and 48V/165F, in March 2013.

  • 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:
