A collaboration between Adetel Group and JSR Micro NV has resulted in the launch of PowerLIC, an Ultimo lithium-ion capacitor (LIC) module. PowerLIC provides a solution to the increasing need for sustainable autonomy in the transportation industry (tramways, hybrid buses, light rail vehicles), in embedded systems or fast charging stations.
Certified to meet the transportation industry requirements, PowerLIC enables the doubling of energy density and lifetime compared to solutions available on the market today. This advantageous performance comes in a reduced footprint. With hardly any maintenance required, the lowest operating cost is reached whilst its rackable format and individual safety integrity level (SIL2) allows safe and easy operation.
ULTIMO lithium-ion capacitors are used at the energy storage device within the module. By changing the type of cell, the characteristics of the modules can be tuned in order to provide the optimum balance between energy and power at the lowest cost of ownership.
A lithium-ion capacitor is a type of hybrid super capacitor, combining properties of lithium-ion batteries with properties of electric double layer capacitors. As a result, it offers a high energy density and a high power density.
