Ioxus Brings Three New Modules (iMODTM) to Market with High Power and Energy Density

Ioxus, a manufacturer of premium performance ultracapacitor technology for transportation, alternative energy, medical, industrial and consumer product markets, today unveiled three new modules: the iMODTM 16V/500F, 80V/15F and 48V/165F, which all deliver higher power and energy densities as compared with competitive products. Notably, the iMODTM 16V/500F provides power density up to 95 percent greater than modules currently on the market.

“We’re seeing global customers in the automotive, wind energy, industrial and hybrid bus sectors strive for greater efficiency and higher performance with their systems, making the need for flexible and powerful products more important than ever,” said Mark McGough, CEO of Ioxus. “Here at Ioxus, we invest significant resources into our product design and are proud to have the most advanced R&D in the industry. We are always striving to create products that provide the technology, form and function best-suited to address our customers’ needs and the pain points of key industries.”

The iMODTM 16V/500F, 80V/15F and 48V/165F have several applications integral to the success of global industries, including in stop/start transportation systems, regenerative energy capture, grid power storage systems, backup power/UPS and robotics.

In addition to addressing needs of key industries, these modules were designed with the customer experience in mind. The iMODTM 80V/15F can be ordered as a preassembled field replacement unit (FRU), eliminating up to 10 hours of labor and reducing the opportunity for assembly error. The iMODTM 16V/500F has customizable end plates to fit a variety of alternate mounting configurations based on a customer’s need. Additionally, the iMODTM 48V/165F has better thermal performance than competitors, leading to long life in high power, high cycle applications.

Technical highlights of these new products in the iMODTM line include:

iMODTM 16V/500F:

  • 16.2V working voltage
  • Two stage balancing for best-in-class product life
  • One piece extrusion
  • Completely enclosed circuitry
  • Available state of charge indicator

iMODTM 80V/15F:

  • 81V working voltage
  • Modular stacking construction
  • Can order as a preassembled FRU
  • Digital monitoring available
  • Low system cost
  • Completely enclosed circuitry

iMODTM 48V/165F:

  • 48.6V working voltage
  • Two stage balancing for best-in-class product life
  • Highest power of similar modules
  • Three piece housing
  • Internal management circuit board
  • Available state of charge indicator

These Ioxus modules are more efficient than batteries, allowing for hundreds of thousands of cycles, under a wide range of climate conditions, with minimum changes in performance. The unique design features make these new additions to the iMODTM line both rugged and reliable. As with all Ioxus products, these new iMODsTM are optimized for highest performance and maximize the value for the end customer.
