Maxwell Technologies Announces Availability of Enhanced 48V Module

Maxwell Technologies, Inc. announced an enhancement to its 48V module product, which now includes the benefits of the company's new DuraBlue(TM) Advanced Shock and Vibration Cell Technology. The new module has been tested to meet and exceed the industry's high shock (IEC 60068-2-27 and 2-29) and vibration (ISO 16750-3, Tables 12 and 14) ratings for ultracapacitor modules, exceeding the most demanding testing requirements for mass transportation applications, such as in hybrid buses, particularly in China. The enhanced module has been validated through several months of sampling with selected customers and is immediately available. Maxwell's DuraBlue Advanced Shock and Vibration Technology is the company's latest advance in ultracapacitor reliability and performance. It combines Maxwell's unique dry electrode formation and manufacturing process with a patent-pending cell structure design, resulting in a significant increase in vibration immunity of as much as 300% and in shock immunity of as much as 400% versus most comparable competitive offerings. The new module will offer advanced capacitor management system (CMS) options for improved reliability, as well as safety enhancements, which include a redundant over-voltage alarm, while maintaining the existing product life characteristics.

Maxwell Technologies Receives $2.68 Million Contract from U.S. Advanced Battery Consortium to Develop High-Performance Hybrid Ultracapacitor/Lithium-ion Battery for Stop-Start Autos

Maxwell Technologies, Inc. announced that it has been awarded a $2.68 million cost-shared technology development contract by the United States Advanced Battery Consortium LLC (USABC) to develop a high-performance hybrid ultracapacitor/lithium-ion battery for stop-start idle-elimination microhybrid autos. Maxwell, which will provide 51% of the program funding, is tasked with demonstrating the technological and economic feasibility of a 12-volt hybrid energy storage system consisting of lithium-ion batteries and Maxwell ultracapacitors that can meet stop-start auto performance specifications established by USABC. Of particular interest are ultracapacitors' high power density, long operational lifetime, low-temperature performance and influence on battery performance and lifetime. Unlike batteries, which produce and store energy by means of a chemical reaction, ultracapacitors store energy in an electric field. This electrostatic energy storage mechanism enables ultracapacitors to charge and discharge in as little as fractions of a second, perform normally over a broad temperature range (-40degC to +65degC), operate reliably through one million or more charge/discharge cycles and resist shock and vibration.

Maxwell Technologies, Inc. Announces Joint Development Agreement with Corning Inc

Maxwell Technologies, Inc. announced a joint development agreement with Corning Incorporated to advance ultracapacitor technologies. Maxwell's expertise in ultracapacitor cell design, manufacturing processes and market-leading capacitive energy storage product designs combined with Corning's expertise in high-performance materials, analytical capabilities and technology innovations should enable the two parties, working in collaboration, to ultimately achieve superior product value for customers and end users.
