Ioxus Launches First Ultracaps

Aug. 24, 2009
Ioxus, Inc., developers, manufacturers of ultracapacitors for energy storage markets, today launched its first family of Electric Double Layer Capacitors (EDLCs) and power modules for military, transportation and alternative energy applications.

Ioxus, Inc., developers, manufacturers of ultracapacitor technologies for energy storage markets, today launched its first family of Electric Double Layer Capacitors (EDLCs) and power modules for military, transportation and alternative energy applications. Ioxus' family of ultracapacitors provides smaller-sized solutions with more capacitance and greater power densities over competitors.

Ioxus' ultracapacitors provide energy storage to improve the efficiency of hybrid electric vehicles by recycling the energy captured during braking and lowering peak power requirements on hybrid-diesel, fuel cell or battery-based vehicles. By stabilizing the power output of these systems with ultracapacitors, fuel-cell and battery-based applications realize significant increases in life cycles. When used in combination with batteries or other energy sources, Ioxus EDLCs reduce power drain from the energy source and extend its available life up to 400 percent.

Ioxus stands alone in providing 100 percent U.S.-made ultracapacitors that extend the charge time and reduce the use of batteries for electronics, hybrid vehicles, wind farms, material handling equipment and other green technologies. As a subsidiary of Custom Electronics, Inc., which has supplied commercial and military clients with high-reliability capacitors and integrated electronic solutions since 1964, Ioxus manufactures price competitive products that have higher capacitance and adhere to rigorous quality standards. The company also is working towards AS9100 and ISO-9001 certification.

The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) awarded up to $1.5 million to Ioxus in April 2009 to support the company's manufacturing facilities. As a result of the NYSERDA program, Ioxus raised $5 million in venture capital funding to support manufacturing and development.
