High-performance reliability: Rutronik introduces XLR-LV supercapacitor modules from EATON

08/10/2023 Product News

Improved reliability, higher voltage, and power: With the XLR-16R2507B-R (16 V/ 500 F) and XLR-18R0507B-R (18 V / 500 F) supercapacitor modules, EATON offers significantly optimized successor models for the previous XLR-16R2507-R series. Due to their low self-discharge and low leakage current, the modules also convince with a longer service life. Thanks to the IP65 housing and stable performance at operating temperatures between -40 °C and +85 °C, they are predestined for use in harsh environments. The supercapacitor modules, as well as other products from EATON, are available at www.rutronik24.com.

The supercapacitor modules can be used as a stand-alone energy storage device or in combination with batteries to optimize cost, lifetime, and uptime. System requirements can range from a few microwatts to megawatts.

In addition, they have extruded aluminum sidewalls, which can provide improved heat dissipation and mechanical stability. The laser-welded internal structure allows reduced overall weight and ensures that ESR remains stably low throughout the lifetime and power density does not decrease – even when the component is subjected to shock and vibration over an extended period.

Advantages at a glance:

  • Capacitance of 500 F
  • Maximum permissible operating voltage of 16 or 18 V
  • Extruded aluminum sidewalls
  • Laser-welded bus bars
  • Low self-discharge
  • Low leakage current
  • IP65 housing
  • Low cost of ownership and maintenance free

Examples of target applications:

  • Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV), People Mover / Passenger Transport Systems PTS.
  • Industrial Emergency Power Supply: PLC, Robotics, Automation
  • Variable Frequency Drives (VFD)
  • Engine starting: generators
  • Transportation Systems
  • H2 Fuel Cell Drives
  • Traction Inverters
