Vishay introduces a 3 V rugged ENYCAPTM energy storage capacitor with long life and high moisture resistance.
35 EDLC double-layer capacitors are tested for 1500 hours at 85 °C / 85% relative humidity and have a service life of up to 2000 hours, suitable for harsh and high humidity environments.
Pennsylvania, MALVERN — October 21, 2019 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) announced the launch of a new series of 3.0 V rugged ENYCAPTM electric double-layer energy storage capacitors –235 EDLC-HVR ENYCAP For energy harvesting and backup power applications in harsh, high humidity environments. Vishay BCcomponents 235 EDLC-HVR The ENYCAP capacitor is the industry’s first device with a service life of 2000 hours at +85 °C and a maximum voltage rating of 3.0 V. After 1500 hours of 85 °C / relative humidity 85% live test, the moisture resistance is reached. The highest level.
The capacitors released today are twice as long as standard electric double-layer capacitors, maintenance-free and have very good design flexibility. Capacitors are highly resistant to moisture and can be used in a variety of industrial, renewable energy and automotive applications, including smart meters, handheld electronics, robotics, solar panels, electronic latches and emergency lighting.
235 EDLC-HVR ENYCAP capacitors are available in 15 small form factors from 10 mm x 20mm to 18mm x 40mm with high power density and capacitance values from 5F to 60F. The device is RoHS compliant and can be quickly charged and discharged in a through-hole package version.
235 EDLC-HVR ENYCAP capacitors are sampling now and are in volume production. The lead time for major orders is six weeks.
