Newark, the Development Distributor, has broadened its portfolio of passive devices with the addition of the new supercapacitor modules from Eaton, enabling design engineers to optimize equipment footprints, improve efficiency and reduce costs. This supercapacitor line includes highly reliable, high power, ultra-high capacitance energy storage devices that are tailored to work with applications for backup power, pulse power and hybrid power systems.
The new supercapacitors balance the power density of traditional capacitors with the energy density of batteries. They feature a double layer construction that offers high capacitance and low ESR, resulting in high power density and energy efficiency. Eaton supercapacitors can be used alone or in combination with batteries to optimize cost.
