Ioxus, a manufacturer of premium performance ultracapacitor technology for transportation, alternative energy, medical, industrial and consumer product markets, unveiled three new modules: the iMODTM 16V/500F, 80V/15F and 48V/165F, which all deliver high power and energy densities.
“We’re seeing global customers in the automotive, wind energy, industrial and hybrid bus sectors strive for greater efficiency and higher performance with their systems, making the need for flexible and powerful products more important than ever,” said Mark McGough, CEO of Ioxus. “Here at Ioxus, we invest significant resources into our product design and are proud to have the most advanced R&D in the industry. We are always striving to create products that provide the technology, form and function best-suited to address our customers’ needs and the pain points of key industries.”

The iMODTM 16V/500F, 80V/15F and 48V/165F have several applications integral to the success of global industries, including in stop/start transportation systems, regenerative energy capture, grid power storage systems, backup power/UPS and robotics.

Technical highlights of these new products in the iMODTM line include:

Romain’s opinion:

Those modules are combining several types of ultracapacitor (cylindrical cells and prismatic pouch cells), combining both advantages. Do you think it will be more competitive than Li-ion batteries despite a probable higher cost?

    We seek sources of electrical energy storage of at least 150 MJ or 45 Kwh , with minimum voltage of 48 V.
    The application is for the production of hydrogen for automotive use in vehicle demand and storage of electricity by wind power generation average .
    What solution can propose us with your products?
