Würth Elektronik has introduced a new class of electrical double layer capacitor (EDLC) supercapacitors with snap-in terminals. WCAP-SISC capacitors are available with capacitance values of 100F and 350F, suited to applications with high power and high energy requirements such as UPS or energy storage solutions. They can be used in smart metering devices, network components or energy harvesting applications and the like. Rated current is up to 75A.
The far higher energy density compared with conventional capacitors has made double-layer capacitors an environmentally friendly alternative to batteries. Compared to li-ion batteries, the supercapacitor with activated carbon technology offers benefits including: fast charging, service life of 500,000 cycles and lower fire hazard. Rated voltage is 2.7V and operating temperature range is -40 to 65°C.
The supercapacitors are available from stock without a minimum order quantity and free samples can be ordered online or through a representative.
