KYOCERA AVX Releases New SCM Series Series-Connected SuperCapacitor Modules
KYOCERA AVX, a leading global manufacturer of advanced electronic components engineered to accelerate technological innovation and build a better future, released the new SCM Series double-layer, series-connected electrochemical SuperCapacitor modules.
The new SCM Series series-connected SuperCapacitor modules can be used by themselves or in conjunction with primary or secondary batteries to extend battery life and backup time or provide instantaneous power pulses in hold-up, energy harvesting, and pulse power applications in the industrial, energy, telecommunications, automotive, transportation, and medical industries. The series exhibits very high capacitance, very low ESR, high efficiency, high power density, and excellent pulse power handling characteristics. It also supports active cell balancing and ruggedly withstands high current, high vibration, and frequent charge and discharge cycles.
SCM Series supercapacitor modules are rated for operating temperatures extending from -40°C to +65°C and lifetimes that extend to millions of cycles. They are also lead-free compatible, RoHS compliant, and compliant with the UL 810A standard for electrochemical capacitors. Ideal applications for the series include heavy industrial equipment, uninterrupted power supplies, utility grid and micro grid storage and power shaving, energy harvesting, regenerative energy capture, variable speed pitch control, GSM and GPRS wireless communications, automotive and transportation vehicles spanning EVs and HEVs to trucks, busses, trains, and elevators, and portable medical devices.
The initial release of the new SCM Series is comprised of five immediately available part numbers:
