Super Capacitors Reach 3,500 Farads

Oct. 12, 2012
DCN series of super capacitors from Illinois Capacitor offers capacitance values up to 3,500 Farads, while maintaining small case sizes.

DCN series of super capacitors from Illinois Capacitor offers capacitance values up to 3,500 Farads, while maintaining small case sizes. Custom modules are also available to combine multiple capacitors for combinations of higher voltage ratings or capacitance.

The expanded DCN Series includes more values, now ranging in capacitance from 1F (Farad) to 3,500F, with voltage ratings from 2.7 to 5.5WVDC. Operating temperature ranges from -40 to +60°C for extended life performance.

DCN super capacitors are an excellent choice for battery replacements or supplements. Unlike batteries, they do not degrade with each cycle. At 2.7 volts, DCN load life is rated at 86,700 hours. Operating life is rated at 10 years with 500,000 cycles. Applications for these super capacitors include: energy harvesting, battery pack alternatives, memory backup, battery/capacitor hybrids, UPS systems, emergency lighting, solar lighting, auto sound power boost and more.

DCN Series capacitors are packaged with various termination styles and case diameters, depending on values. The parts are also fully RoHS compliant. Like other IC capacitors, each DCN Series capacitor is 100% burn-in tested. Prices start at $0.70 for a 10 Farad at 2.7 Volt. Delivery: stock to 45 days for production quantities.
