Tecate's Supercapacitors Now UL Recognized
Small form factor supercapacitors.
San Diego, CA — Tecate Group's extensive inventory of RoHS-compliant CAP-XX supercapacitors is now UL 810A Recognized under UL's Components Recognition Program. The UL 810A standard covers supercapacitors (electromechanical double-layer capacitors, or EDLCs) and is intended to ensure the safety of electronic products and systems.

Tecate is the only CAP-XX global distributor, as well as the world's largest stocking distributor of CAP-XX cells and modules. The low profile, low ESR, high-capacitance supercapacitor cells are designed to address both the power delivery constraints of battery systems and the energy delivery limitations of conventional capacitors.

CAP-XX supercapacitor cells operate at 2.75V; whereas modules comprised of the cells are supplied with either 4.5V or 5.5V operating voltage. The parts are available with a wide operating and storage temperature range of -40 to +85°C.

CAP-XX's thin, prismatic cells and modules are widely specified to provide burst and back-up power in space-constrained portable and wireless electronic products. They are most commonly employed in tablet and handheld PCs, mobile phones, bar-code scanners, credit card terminals, digital cameras, solid state disks (SSDs), location-tracking devices, smart meters, battery-free condition monitoring systems, and small uninterruptible power supplies.
