Eaton announces XT supercapacitor at APEC 2018

March 5, 2018

San Antonio, TX. Eaton today announced at APEC 2018 its new 3.0-V XT supercapacitor, which offers 15% higher energy density and 20% higher power density at a lower cost per watt-hour compared with currently available supercapacitors, according to the company. The new supercapacitor allows a reduced size and weight for high cell-count designs.

“We are pleased to deliver a supercapacitor that meets the power and efficiency needs of our customers,” said Jason Lee, Eaton’s global product manager for supercapacitors. “Eaton’s new XT supercapacitors are designed for high-power, high-energy applications such as industrial-systems backup, medical equipment, and 48-V automotive systems. Other applications include material-handling systems such as robots and automated guided vehicles (AGVs).”

Eaton describes its XT supercapacitors as ultrahigh capacitance devices utilizing electrochemical double-layer capacitor (EDLC) construction combined with new, high-performance materials. This combination of advanced technologies allows Eaton to offer a variety of capacitor solutions tailored to specific applications that range from delivering a few microamps for several days to several amps for just seconds.

The company will be exhibiting at APEC in San Antonio this week and will be participating in several sessions:

  • On March 7, 11:15 a.m., Jason Lee, Eaton global product manager, will present “Applications and Benefits of Supercapacitor Technology.”
  • On March 8, 11:30 a.m., Ramdev Kanapady, PhD, Eaton technology development leader will present “Fatigue Life Prediction Model for Surface Mountable Power Electronics Fuses.”
  • On March 8, noon, Kanapady will present “Design Selection of Ferrite and Powder Inductors Using New SPICE Models.”
