Eaton wins Elektronik – New Product of the Year Award for their TV Series Supercap

Eaton TV cells provide energy storage for high power charge/discharge cycling, peak power shaving and backup power applications. They also provide power to safely shutdown systems and avoid data loss when main power is disconnected. TV cells are RoHS compliant, UL recognized, contain no heavy metals and are safe for air shipments.

Eaton Supercapacitors

With up to a 20-year lifespan, TV cells are ideal for smart meters (electric, gas, water), data storage servers, powering RF radios used for data transmission and all types of industrial controllers.

TV supercapacitors with 3-volt (V) cells that help increase stored energy capacity and power by 20 percent compared to 2.7 V cells. Working either in conjunction with or as standalone alternatives to batteries, TV supercapacitors help reduce maintenance requirements and can provide a longer life and cost-effective energy storage for applications that require extremely reliable back-up power, pulse power or voltage control. Providing one of the industry’s highest pulse power, Eaton’s supercapacitors’ increased capacity enables improved system performance for utility meters, automotive systems, data center flash servers and industrial automation.

Supercapacitors are being used as energy storage devices in high peak power applications where operating and product costs present challenges. In applications requiring large quantity cell-count designs, 10 percent fewer cells are required for the same operating voltage, offering the ability to make systems smaller and reduce costs. Additionally, supercapacitors help reduce total cost of ownership by offering a longer lifespan and higher reliability compared to systems that rely only on batteries for energy storage.

Eaton’s TV supercapacitors provide a significant increase in performance over 2.7V supercapacitors, resulting in a 35 percent increase in usable discharge energy, with typical 0.3 V de-rating. The stored energy of the TV cells allows longer back up times for flash storage servers. The product is a drop-in replacement for Eaton’s HB and HV product offerings.

Eaton’s TV cells deliver equivalent series resistance (ESR), broad capacitance ratings from 6 to 100 farads (F) and a wide temperature range between minus 40-degrees Celsius (C) and 65-degrees C. The cells are manufactured in a TS16949 certified factory.

Eaton offers a range of electronics products that include power magnetics, circuit protection and high-energy storage solutions. These products serve customers in computing, communications, transportation, industrial, alternative energy and back-up power storage markets.
