High Voltage Caps Relish Harsh Environments

Vishay Intertechnology’s high-voltage ENYCAP electrical double-layer energy storage capacitors are tailored for energy harvesting and power backup applications in harsh environments. The capacitors are deemed to be among the industry's first to offer a useful life of 2,000 hours, double that of standard electrical double-layer capacitors, at +85°C and with a maximum rated voltage of 3V.


Available in eight case sizes ranging from 16 mm x 20 mm to 18 mm x 40 mm, the capacitors offer a power density to 4.1 Wh/kg and capacitance values from 20F to 60F. The RoHS-compliant devices feature rapid charge and discharge performance and are available in through-hole versions. Samples and production quantities of the 230 EDLC-HV ENYCAP capacitors are available now, with lead times of six weeks for larger quantities. Pricing for U.S. delivery only ranges from $1.70 to $3.40 per piece. For more insights and spec, peruse the 230 EDLC-HV ENYCAP capacitors datasheet.
