New Bedford, Mass. Cornell Dubilier Electronics, Inc. (CDE) has introduced a 15-year long-life Type EDL electronic double-layer capacitor specifically for use in battery back-up applications when battery replacement is necessary. Applications include cell phones, solar battery back-up, small motor starters, gaming machines, real-time clock battery back-up and remote reading utility meters.
The Type EDL capacitor is available in horizontal and vertical radial-leaded stacked coin configurations, a cylindrical case with radial leads, and a surface-mount package. The capacitors offer capacitance values from 0.22 F to 70 F with a voltage range of 2.1 Vdc to 5.5 Vdc depending on the capacitance rating. The EDL provides unlimited charging and discharging capability and extends battery life up to 1.6 times longer, said the company.
