Maxwell Technologies Inc. has announced the availability of the 2.7kF TC2700 ultracapacitor for use as an energy storage device in transportation and industrial power systems.

Manufactured using the company's proprietary material science and design process, the ultracapacitor can be used for 12V and 42V automotive electrical systems to power luxury and safety features, as well as standard mechanical functions such as braking and steering.

It can also be used in hybrid electric buses, trucks, and trains to reduce fuel consumption and emissions by using electric power to assist acceleration and recapturing and reusing energy from braking.

The ultracapacitor is also targeted for use as a solid state alternative to batteries for short-term bridging in UPS systems.
