CAP-XX Supercapacitors G-series - CAP-XX GA, CAP-XX GS, CAP-XX GW

Product overview

CAP-XX Supercapacitors G-series operate at 2.5V nom / 2.75V peak for a single cell and 5.0V nom / 5.5V peak for dual cell modules (2 cells connected in series). The operating temperature range for the G-series is -40°C to +70°C & Tmax = 70°C. CAP-XX Supercapacitors G-series include product references starting with CAP-XX GA, CAP-XX GS and CAP-XX GW.

 

Key Features

  • Ultra-thin prismatic cells and modules: Ideal for use in space-constrained devices.
  • Exceptional power density (up to 158 kW/litre), with best-in-class ESR (from 10 mΩ).
  • High energy density (up to 2.2 Wh/litre), offering high Capacitance in small cells.
  • True, continuous operating voltage of up to 2.75V/cell (H series; 2.9V peak).
  • High temperature rating (H series; 85°C maximum).
  • Excellent low temperature performance (G series; ~2x nominal ESR at -30°C).
  • Very low leakage current (<1 µA) and ultra-low minimum charge current (<20 µA).
  • Virtually unlimited charge-discharge cycle life.
  • Excellent frequency response (CEFFECTIVE).
  • RoHS and REACH compliant, Lead-free, Halogen-free and Conflict metal-free.
  • UL-810 and ISO 9001-2008 certified.

 

Typical Applications

  • Peak power for pulsed loads
    ✓ Isolate the source from fluctuations in the load (input smoothing).
    ✓ Extend battery life and run-time, especially when “old or cold”.
    ✓ Enable the use of cheaper, smaller, lower power batteries.
  • Ride-through power for mission-critical applications
    ✓ Isolate the load from fluctuations in the source (output smoothing).
    ✓ Remove the need for back-up batteries and impact-resistant connectors.
    ✓ Provide a low maintenance, uninterruptable on-board power supply.
  • Energy storage for energy harvesters and quick charge power supplies
    ✓ Environmentally friendly, low maintenance alternative to rechargeable batteries.
    ✓ Efficient charging, with minimal losses, from variable / low power sources.
    ✓ Ultra-quick charging via cable, cradle or induction to maximize operating time.

Notes:
1. Select products are available ex-stock (Standard products). The remainder are available to order.
2. Capacitance will decline and ESR will rise over time, at a rate which depends on temperature and voltage. Continuous operation at high temperature & voltage is not recommended. See Section 6 for more information on ageing and endurance.
3. DC capacitance and ESR tolerance are measured at 23°C.
4. Thickness is measured between two parallel plates with 140gm force applied.
5. Leakage current is measured after charging to nominal voltage for 120hrs at 23°C.
6. Single pulse, non-repetitive current (positive & negative terminal short-circuited).
