Call us with your needs and we will assure that all your requirements related to high voltage resistors, high power resistors, non-inductive resistors, tubular resistors, axial leaded resistors, slab resistors, ultracapacitors, supercaps and supercpacitors get fulfilled in the shortest time possible.

Supercaps & Resistors

  Maxcap Double Layer Capacitor Applications

 Commonly known as "Ultracapacitors", "Supercaps" or "Supercapacitors" providing back up power for:

  • CMOS RAMs and Microprocessors
  • Timers for Integrated Circuits
  • Wireless Data Pulses
  • Relays
  • Solenoids
  • Small Motors
  • Alarms
  • Traffic Control
  • UPS Systems
  • Wind Turbines
  • Solar Power

High Energy Density Capacitors for Backup Power

  • NEW! One Farad in a 0.65" x 0.75" Package
  • NEW! Up to 5.6 Farads in a Single 5.5 Volt Package
  • NEW! Up to 5.0 Farad in a Single 11.0 Volt Package
  • NEW! Surface mount package

Maxcap® double layer capacitors, Supercaps, Supercapacitors, and Ultracapacitors are a new electric energy storage device with:

  • Extremely high volumetric efficiency (over 5.5 farads/in3)
  • Virtually unlimited service life
  • Fast/charge discharge capability
  • Very low leakage current.
  • Wide operating temperature range, including -40°C to +85°C (LT & LJ Series)

A Maxcap Double Layer Capacitor (commonly known as supercaps, supercapacitors, or ultracapacitors) are the size of a thimble and will support micro-amp data retention currents of CMOS RAMs for up to several weeks. Microprocessors, small motors and activators having current requirements from one to several hundred milliamps can be supported from several seconds to minutes.

Key Features
  • Very High Capacity in Small Size
    Up to 100 times that of conventional capacitors. Circuit board space and equipment size can be reduced.
  • Useful Voltage Ratings:
    3.5 & 5.5 volt - Ideal for CMOS operating voltage range.11 volt - LV Series, backup for relays, actuators, small motors.
  • Full Range of Sizes
    From 0.01 to 5.6 farads @ 5.5 volts; 0.47, 1.0 & 5.0 farads @ 11 volts.
  • Low Profile
    With LP, LK & LJ series.
  • Ultra Long Life
    Unlike batteries, Maxcap LDCs have no parasitic chemical reactions. They can be fully charged and discharged indefinitely. There is no memory effect.
  • Maintenance Free
    Maxcap DLCs can be placed in remote locations and require no access ports. Warranty claims are minimized.
  • Nonpolar
    Assembly errors and costs are minimized.
  • Wide Operating Temperature Range
    -40 to +85°C LJ & LT Series; -25 to +70°C LP. LC, LK, LF, LV, LX Series
  • Simple, Low Cost Circuitry
    Since Maxcap DLCs do not require current limiting resistors or over-voltage protection, component costs and assembly time are reduced.
  • Safer Than Batteries
    These capacitors will not explode or be damaged if short circuited. They can be installed with wave soldering equipment or surface mount package with IR or vapor phase reflow equipment
