Vishay has introduced a new series of Enycap electrical double-layer energy storage capacitors for energy harvesting, power back-up, and UPS power source applications.

Available in power and energy versions with high stability, Vishay BCcomponents 220 EDLC Enycap series devices deliver high power density and capacitance values in small case sizes ranging from 16mm x 20mm to 18mm x 31mm.

Vishay Enycap 01 Figure 1: 220 EDLC Enycap series devices offer power density to 4.1Wh/kg and capacitance from 15°F to 40°F.

For the industrial, telecom, and PC markets, the polarized, energy storage capacitors released today offer power density to 4.1Wh/kg, capacitance values from 15°F to 40°F, and a maximum rated voltage of 2.7V. 220 EDLC Enycap series devices feature very low internal resistance and rapid charge and discharge performance. The through-hole capacitors offer long leads and are RoHS-compliant.
