Nanoramic’s FastCAP Ultracapacitors – a Line of Wide Temperature Range, Ruggedized Ultracapacitors now available for sale through Dimac Red
Dimac red and Nanoramic Labs signed a distribution partnership to bring its groundbreaking ultracapacitor technology to the European market.
Nanoramic’s FastCAP Ultracapacitors enable significant improvements in terms of power systems design. How? Reducing weight, volume, and complexity while improving performance and relaxing design constraints on current technologies. They provide higher power, require little to no thermal management, and withstand high shock and vibration on a component and module level. Additionally, they are not subject to the volatility associated with chemical batteries.
FastCAP in details
In applications where batteries are currently oversized for power handling, users can expect dramatic reductions in total energy storage system weight by complementing those batteries with ultracapacitors. For cases where the battery designer would be forced to trade off energy for power, the ultracapacitor relaxes those design constraints enabling a more optimal solution – longer life, higher performance, lower volume and weight. Considering applications where pulsed power is routed long distances, dramatic reductions in wire harness weight by providing point of load (POL) power buffering. In some applications, we expect the ultracapacitor to be a complete replacement for less optimal battery technologies.
The FastCAP Ultracapacitor line of high and low temperature, ruggedized, and hermetically sealed ultracapacitors surpasses the performance metrics of any on the market today. In other words, these devices are well suited for applications requiring rechargeable high-power energy storage in a ruggedized format. What are the application fields? Oil and gas, aerospace, defense, industrial, automotive, and grid systems.
“These are the world’s only ruggedized ultracapacitors with rated operation up to 150°C or down to -55°C, with high shock and vibration tolerance,” said Dr John Cooley, President and COO of Nanoramic Laboratories. “To date, Nanoramic’s FastCAP line has successfully demonstrated the utility of these components in harsh oil and gas drilling conditions. They provide high power bursts of electromagnetic telemetry signals from thousands of feet underground.”
