Ioxus, Inc., with the only fully integrated ultracapacitor design and manufacturing facility in North America, maintains the highest standards and delivers the most flexible problem-solving methods for storing and delivering power. We use a propriety electrode design to deliver the highest power density available. Ioxus ultracapacitors, also known as supercapacitors or double layer capacitors, are optimized for the highest performance with the lowest resistance possible. Although they have been around for decades, the unique benefits of our designs, as compared to traditional capacitors, are numerous: They create more power with low resistance, remain impervious to the effects of temperature, and they use less energy. Lightweight and designed to last, they will drastically increase the system peak power when combined with high energy sources to optimize your product. They will prolong the lifespan of other energy sources, such as batteries, or they can act as a stand along energy source. Having no detrimental effects on the environment, Ioxus ultracapacitors are the epitome of green technology.
Our cells weigh only a fifth of a comparable battery but are capable of more than one million cycles. An ultracapacitor’s energy storage mechanism is a highly reversible process, relying on the movement of ions within an electrolyte. However, it does not make or break chemical bonds as a battery does, enabling very fast responses with the capability to deliver those responses hundreds of thousands of cycles with a minimal change in performance. They are able to perform in a wide range of operating temperatures, from -40 to 65 degrees Celsius. One of the best things about our ultracapacitors is that they are completely maintenance free, with a long shelf life at temperatures up to 70 degrees Celsius.
These unique characteristics enable the design engineer to improve the energy efficiency for demanding power applications. Ultracapacitors allow for the replacement of existing energy storage systems, but can also be paired with additional energy storage devices for more highly efficient systems. They are used to extend the charge time on hand-held electronics, and to power hybrid vehicles, wind farms, material handling equipment, and other green energy technologies which are enormously important today.
