Small-cell ultracapacitors tolerate humidity, in distribution

April 05, 2016 // By Graham Prophet
Distributor Rutronik has the XP series from Nesscap Energy, for applications that require extra protection from high degrees of ambient humidity, which causes the escape of electrolyte vapour and can negatively affect PCB surfaces.

Under biased humidity test conditions, XP products mitigate this impact at least three times longer than Nesscap’s equivalent standard cells. This gives the XP series a significant performance advantage. The products are offered in a range of capacitances, from 3F to 50F, and have been extensively tested to ensure strict performance standards and compliance with RoHS, UL, and REACH.
