Ioxus launches new family of ultracaps for easy installation in automotive applications

Ioxus iMOD X-Series

Ioxus has launched its iMOD X-Series, a family of 22 ultracapacitor modules that are designed to simplify system design and installation for end users by offering a wide array of possible mounting configurations.

The new modules use off-the-shelf T-slots to mount from any side in any configuration. They feature internally integrated wire management and integrated heat sinks. Thermally conductive, electrically isolating material is used for mechanical and electrical purposes. All modules have front-facing terminals.

“The iMOD X-Series is very easy to install,” said Chad Hall, VP of Product Management. “It is easy to go under the hood with the Titan cell. We use thermally conductive, electrically isolated material to get the heat out of the cells very efficiently. The finned housing helps.”

Three different ultracap cells are available: 1200 F, 2000 F and 3000 F. The modules build off of a six cell configuration (2×3, so no cell is thermally isolated); e.g., 6 cells for 16 V, 12 cells for 32 V, etc.

“The modules are chemistry-agnostic,” says Chad Hall. “If we come out with a new technology, a higher energy technology, we can put that in there and maintain the exact footprint.
