Newark introduces Abracon’s powerful new high-performance EDLC radial supercapacitors

29 February 2024

Newark is now stocking the range of high-power electric double layer capacitor (EDLC) radial supercapacitors from Abracon, a supplier of leading-edge, innovative electronic components including frequency control, timing, power, magnetics, radio frequency and antenna solutions.

Newark product segment leader for Abracon, Euan Gilligan, said, “We are delighted to stock this remarkable line of EDLC radial supercapacitors, which are specifically engineered to meet the accelerating demand for fast-charging, high-capacity energy storage solutions. They are key components for a wide range ofSource: NewarkSource: Newark industries, including automotive, renewable energy, industrial automation, consumer electronics and many more.”

The EDLC supercapacitors are efficient and compact, providing exceptional energy density. Available in 2.7 V and 3.0 V supercapacitors are top performers for applications that require rapid power bursts due to their ultra-fast charge and dissipation capabilities.

Moreover, these supercapacitors are designed for longevity, with an impressive lifecycle that minimizes maintenance costs and enhances system durability. This ability eliminates the operational safety concerns often seen in lithium batteries.

They are also able to operate across a wide temperature range, making them suitable for deployment in challenging environmental conditions. For example, they can operate down to -40° C, which traditional batteries cannot.

Gilligan added, “These supercapacitors are ideal for uninterrupted and backup power supplies, micro energy storage, data transmission and various energy start-up designs. They are also especially useful for wireless networks, energy harvesting, cold-crack engines, micro grids and more.”

Abracon provides an online selection tool that enables developers to select the desired supercapacitor performance by allowing them to filter by type, current, tolerance and more.

Abracon’s EDLC radial supercapacitors can be ordered online from Newark in North America, Farnell in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and element14 in the Asia-Pacific region.
