Eaton’s hybrid supercapacitors are available from Rutronik 

The Eaton HS/HSL hybrid supercapacitors are now available from Rutronik in storage capacities of 10, 25 and 150F.

According to the distributor, the high performance energy storage devices have particularly high capacity for use in emergency power supply, pulse power and hybrid energy systems where reliable operation is a necessity.

They can be used as a standalone energy storage device while low self-discharge makes the hybrid supercapacitors suitable for use in combination with batteries to optimise costs, service life and operating time. 

System requirements can range from a few microW to hundreds of W and operating voltage is 3.8V which provides high energy, while the low ESR ensures high power density, said Rutronik.

Operating temperature for the HSL supercapacitors can be as low as -25 degrees C and for the HS supercapacitors, the extended temperature range is up to +85  degrees C. The capacitors are lead-free, halogen-free and RoHS-compliant, added Rutronik.

The hybrid supercapacitors can be used in industrial backup / ride-through, backup for IT server, smart water and gas meters, IoT energy storage, medical emergency power supply / alarm systems and truck / container asset tracking systems.

 The Eaton supercapacitor portfolio is available from Rutronik.
