Eaton extends its supercapacitor module
Eaton has fortified its supercapacitor module, allowing it to handle greater voltage in challenging situations.
Electrical and industrial company Eaton has recently launched its latest version of its
XLR-51 supercapacitor module that now handles 51.3 volts and 188 farads. With this increased storage threshold, engineers now have a supercapacitor module that is suitable for marine shipping, heavy transport, grid storage, assembly line, and other demanding applications.
This newest Eaton XLR Supercapacitator module is a highly effective and efficient energy storage device that’s geared towards peak shaving, improving the quality of power for voltage spikes, and handling brown-outs for power backup systems. Each unit is equipped with voltamge management circuitry, a temperature output, and an overvoltage signal.
The 48 and 51 volt versions of the XLR modules have both received UN-ECE Reg. 10 and Reg. 100 certification. These certifications cover the requirements for wheeled vehicle electromagnetic compatibility and electric vehicle integration, respectively.What’s more, thanks to the company’s advanced cell balancing technology, Eaton’s supercapacitor modules are also RoHS compliant, meaning that no BMS or external Battery Management System is necessary.
The XLR modules are stand alone energy storage devices are rated to have a lifespan of 20 years when used in energy storage systems for transportation, which in turn means not having to replace batteries and other related components. The XLR supercapacitors in turn are made up of eighteen XL60 supercapacitor cells
