The SEC range of ‘supercapacitors’, available from Rhopoint Components, is an energy storage option that helps to bridge the gap between conventional capacitors and batteries.

Available in values between 470,000uF and 1,000,000uF, these devices can replace secondary batteries in electronic systems.

The charge/discharge circuit is very simple and they can store or release energy very quickly, which makes them ideal for use in energy recovery systems.

Other than the fast charge/discharge time, these devices offer several other benefits over secondary batteries: they will operate without significant degradation of performance over the temperature range of -25C to 70C, they can be charged and discharged for more than 100,000 cycles, and they are environmentally friendly, containing no heavy metals or other hazardous substances.

Typical applications include memory back-up for hand-held electronics systems, industrial control systems and commercial electronics.

Custom capacitor assemblies are also available, for applications such as electric vehicle energy recovery systems.

The standard 0.47F and 1F devices are available from stock at Rhopoint Components.
