Ultracapacitor manufacturer Ioxus re-signs distribution agreement with APC
For nearly a decade APC has been designing-in and specifying Ioxus ultracapacitors into projects within the transport, industrial and manufacturing sectors. This February the team is delighted to confirm the renewal of our partnership as the exclusive UK and Ireland representative of Ioxus Inc.
As a global leading designer and manufacturer of fully integrated ultracapacitors, Ioxus Inc is the only manufacturer to offer 85°C rated products. Based in North America, with factories in New York and Japan, they operate to the highest technical and design standards whilst utilising the most flexible problem-solving methods to power delivery solutions. Ioxus ultracapacitors use intelligent designs with smart electronics to deliver the highest power density available.
The product suite comprises a host of world-class modules that range from 16V to 128V with both cylindrical and pouch cell products.
USTART – the Ioxus uSTART is a system designed to dramatically increase the starting reliability of trucks and machines, and provides a stable voltage on the electrical bus, the energy needed to start the vehicle, reduces starter and battery replacement needs by 2x, and includes road-side jump start capabilities. Designed and tested for large fleet.
X-SERIES – these modules, made with cylindrical or prismatic pouch cells, have a high voltage range, can deliver and absorb a high current, can perform under a wide range of climate conditions, and have a long life cycle. They are designed to hold multiple cells to attain any voltage requirement in the most efficient way possible. We have several highly effective modules, ranging from 16 Volts to 128 Volts. They allow for hundreds of thousands of charge/discharge cycles with minimum changes in performance over the life cycle of the product.
THINCAP cells are lightweight, high power and high energy density cells using a prismatic pouch design, complete with a patented vent which allows gas to escape during use to maintain a long product life. These cells are designed to be used in modules only, and Ioxus has a number of THiNPAC® modules ranging from 54V to 216V using the THiNCAP® cells.

We see great potential in the ultracapacitor market in the UK, and in particular with large fleet users and UK-based vehicle manufacturers. Supported by the well established Ioxus sales and marketing team in the US our team on the ground, led by Amanda Dunn, will be working hard to grow sales. Additionally, the European launch in 2018 of the uSTART, ultracapacitor based battery support module, we see Ioxus as an excellent fit with our existing range of high reliability and embedded solutions.
