Young Electronics Group has announced the availability of the 75V Boostcap ultracapacitor module to meet the power quality requirements of wind turbines and other renewable energy applications.

Maxwell developed the module in response to demand for an easy-to-integrate energy storage building block for a variety of electrical system functions, including back-up power for orderly shutdown of wind turbine blade pitch mechanisms and automated manufacturing equipment.

The 75V module offers a low ESR – 15mO in a compact package, which maximises the energy density and delivery to power the largest pitch systems or provide back-up for high-voltage systems.

The 75V, 94F modules can provide up to 73Wh of storage and up to four modules can be wired in series.

The BMOD0094 EO75 B02 module features an IP54 dust and water spray resistant design, is SAEJ 2383 vibration test compliant and includes an integrated Harting connector temperature sensor to enable remote monitoring.

Boostcap modules can be arrayed in series or parallel configurations to provide instantly available power for higher voltage applications.

The latest addition to the Bootscap module product line is based on Maxwell’s standard 3,000-farad energy cell.

The module is enclosed in a rugged, splash- and dust-resistant enclosure designed to ensure safe, reliable operation in harsh temperature, humidity and vibration conditions.

Maxwell said that Boostcap ultracapacitor products deliver up to 10 times the power and longevity of batteries, require no maintenance and operate reliably in extreme temperatures.

In transportation applications, they recapture energy from braking for reuse in hybrid and all-electric drive trains.

In mission-critical industrial applications, where back-up power ensures continued operation or a soft shutdown in the event of power interruptions, they provide reliable, maintenance-free energy storage.
