Cornell Dubilier introduces a new series of high voltage and high energy density supercapacitors. The series will be released under the Illinois Capacitor brand. DSF Supercapacitors offer a notable jump in voltage rating over typical supercapacitors to 3.0WVDC for a single component and 6.0WVDC for a dual-pack device. This higher voltage spec results in greater energy densities, which in turn saves space and may reduce the number of devices required. The DSF Series includes 17 different value/voltage combinations, ranging in capacitance from 1.5F (Farad) to 600F, with voltage ratings from 3.0 to 6WVDC. Multiple devices can be banked in series or parallel for even higher voltage or capacitance. With an operating temperature range of -40°F to 185°F (-40°C to 85°C) @ 2.5V and -40°F to 149°F (-40°C to 65°C) @ 3.0V, the DSF is tolerant of wide-ranging operational environments. The DSF Series gives engineers increased design options while holding down costs. With increased energy storage, supercapacitors can provide instantaneous bursts of power which make it possible to smooth brief power interruptions, supplement batteries, or be used in place of batteries in certain applications. DSF supercapacitors do not degrade with each cycle and are rated at 500,000 cycles. Operating life is expected to be up to 10 years. Depending on voltage and capacitance, there are four lead configurations available; radial, two-pin snap-in, four-pin snap-in, and radial dual pack. Parts are fully RoHS compliant.
