Supercapacitors

Capacitors or double layer capacitors have rapidly become recognised, not only as an excellent compromise between ‘electronic’ or ‘dielectric’ capacitors such as ceramic, tantalum, film and aluminium electrolytic, and batteries, but also as a valuable technology for providing a unique combination of characteristics, particularly very high pulse power and capacitance densities.

APC Hi-Rel provides a wide range of supercapacitors from leading manufacturer AVX to suit your exact applications and requirements.

BestCap® – BZ Series

In the BestCap® BZ Series from AVX, a unique proton polymer membrane is used – charge transfer by protons is close to the transfer rate for electrons and orders of magnitude greater than organic molecules. BestCap® is a low ESR pulse super-capacitor based on the non-hazardous proton activated polymer system. It competes directly with devices made with organic electrolytes, but has a far wider voltage range, from 3.6V to 20V (organics are typically limited up to 5V). BestCap® has a temperature range of -20°C to +70°C, which is wider than for batteries, and also offers select values available between -40°C to +75°C. BestCap® has the most “capacitor-like” frequency response of all supercaps and has low ESR and low profile characteristics.

BestCap® features:

  • Capacitance range: 6.8mF to 1000mF
  • Voltage range: 3.6V to 20V
  • ESR: 25 to 600 mΩ

SCC Series – SuperCapacitors

AVX’s new series of cylindrical electrochemical double-layer capacitors, available from APC Hi-Rel, offers excellent pulse power handling characteristics based on the combination of very high capacitance and very low ESR. Used by themselves or in conjunction with primary or secondary batteries, they provide extended back up time, longer battery life, and provide instantaneous power pulses as needed. Offers great solutions to Hold Up, Energy Harvesting, and Pulse Power Applications.

SCC series features:

  • Cap values from 1F – 3500F
  • High pulse power capability
  • Low ESR
  • Low leakage current

Typical applications

Camera flash systems, energy harvesting, GSM/GSR pulse applications, UPS/Industrial, wireless alarms, remote metering, scanners, toys and games
