Skeleton Technologies has launched a UL-certified, PCB mountable 300farad ultracapacitor range for manufacturing and warehouse logistics.
The SkelCap SCA0300 range is aimed at uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems to protect sensitive manufacturing equipment as well battery replacement in shuttle and AGV (Automated Guided Vehicle) designs.
At 300F, the range targets one of the most popular ultracapacitor sizes on the market and is designed to be easily mountable to PCB boards, allowing efficient assembly for a variety of applications. The high power and excellent thermal characteristics of SCA0300 are the result of the low ESR, or internal resistance, of the cell that comes from a graphene sponge material.
“The decision to develop a product platform in the 300F size and form factor came down to significant interest from the market, proven by the various applications already utilizing this cell size. The advantages provided by our low resistance and our patented manufacturing technologies make the SCA0300 the leading product platform in terms of power density, low heat generation, and lifetime," said Dr. Sebastian Pohlmann, Head of Cell Development at Skeleton Technologies.
"We have already made a successful market entry in the elevator market by reducing energy consumption of elevators, together with Epic Power, and are proud to be saving energy by tens of percents in elevators, both for new installations and in retrofit projects around the world.”
Power packs will also be produced at Skeleton Technologies’ ultracapacitor production facility in Saxony, Germany.
“The new SCA0300 product platform, combined with our ultracapacitor management system and modern production processes, enables us to provide reliable, state-of-the-art ultracapacitor modules at a cost-efficient price point, while still maintaining the highest performance and quality in the industry,” said Taavi Madiberk, the CEO of Skeleton Technologies.
