Experiment with supercaps without cell-balancing concerns

August 01, 2014 // By Graham Prophet
Kemet has introduced a supercapacitor development balancing kit to accompany its S301 supercapacitor, comprising a 2-stage active balancing circuit to ensure that voltage across each supercapacitor cell is approximately equal.

Typical applications include product validation, prototyping, low volume production and custom configurations in a variety of markets. The kit features high frequency capacitance retention, energy delivery capabilities and reliability, as well as overvoltage protection and RoHS compliance. Each kit contains sufficient balancing cards, bus bars, and assorted hardware to assemble six S301 60 mm diameter cells.
