High power density and active balancing: KYOCERA AVX’s SCM series of Supercapacitor modules – at Rutronik

by gabi

With the Supercapacitor modules of the SCM series from KYOCERA AVX, Rutronik offers extremely robust components for industrial applications that require high peak performance. The SCM series is suitable for high-current or industrial applications, including renewable energy generation, grid-connected storage, or the buffering of power peaks. Further components and information about KYOCERA AVX products are also available at the e-commerce platform www.rutronik24.com.

Thanks to active balancing, the capacitor modules have a stable voltage level in the individual cells installed in the module. They operate individually or in combination with batteries or accumulators. Either they supply energy as a backup or support providing power peaks together with batteries or accumulators. In this case, they often have a positive effect on the service life of the battery or accumulator.

The series is currently available in the following capacity / voltage combinations:

Powerful capacitors for high load capacity

Due to the convincing characteristics of the individual capacitors used, the SCM modules achieve their special pulse load capacity. The combination of very high capacitance and very low internal resistance (ESR) enables a high power density and high efficiency.

The modules are also characterized by a high mechanical load capacity and can withstand high currents, frequent charging and discharging cycles, and strong vibrations. They are designed for operating temperatures from -40 °C to +65 °C and can handle several million cycles, depending on the application. In addition, the modules are lead-free, RoHS-compliant, and meet the UL 810A standard.

Features of the modules at a glance:

  • Low ESR for high efficiency and high power density
  • Long service life
  • Active Balancing
  • Available in the most common capacitance/voltage combinations

Further possible applications for the modules:

  • Energy harvesting
  • Automated guided vehicles
  • Transportation
  • Wireless GSM and GPRS communication
  • As well as other applications in the area of backup support or peak power support
