Supercapacitor module supplies power peaks at high charge/discharge rates

August 08, 2016 // By Graham Prophet
Distributor TTI, Inc. has Eaton’s XLR supercapacitor module that provides energy storage for high power charge/discharge cycling, peak-power-shaving applications and improving power quality through voltage spikes and brown outs.

The 48V, 166F, 5 mOhm supercapacitor module is a self-contained energy storage device comprising 18 individual XL60 supercapacitor cells. It offers low ESR (equivalent series resistance) values and a long lifetime of up to 20 years or >1 million charge/discharge cycles. The module is completely maintenance free, easy to mount and includes integrated cell voltage management circuitry and an overvoltage alarm.


The XLR module can be used in hybrid or electric vehicles, public transportation, material handling, heavy equipment, as well as marine systems. The device can reduce battery size and weight or replace batteries altogether depending upon the load profile. This results in fuel savings, noise reduction and/or a more stable electrical system.
