San Diego, Calif.—Maxwell Technologies' "Quick-Turn" BOOSTCAP ultracapacitor module program offers shipment within 14 days of an order for custom-configured multi-cell energy storage and power delivery solutions extending to 540 volts.
The Quick-Turn program leverages standard modular building blocks and proprietary balancing, monitoring and thermal transfer technologies to establish a new industry standard for flexibility and responsiveness to
customer requirements, noted Richard Balanon, president and CEO. "By eliminating the complexity and
long lead times that system designers frequently encounter when they want to evaluate and prototype ultracapacitors solutions, we are facilitating and
accelerating development of new applications that have the potential to drive high volumes in the years ahead."
Custom Quick-Turn modules based on the BCAP2600 2,600-farad Energy and Power cells are immediately available. Additional options based on the company's entire MC family of products, ranging from 650 to 3,000 farads will be phased in beginning in the third quarter. Quick-Turn module pricing will be quoted on a fixed fee basis for quantities of one to five units.
Maxwell also offers a complete line of standard, 15- to 48-volt multi-cell packs and modules based on the company's Power- and Energy-type ultracapacitor cells. Both standard and Quick-Turn modules are encased in
rugged, splash-proof aluminum chassis and include internal cell balancing that give designers "plug and play" solutions, plus module-to-module balancing for building block systems with higher volltage requirements.
All BOOSTCAP cells with a capacitance of 650 farads or greater operate at 2.7 volts.
