Maxwell Technologies, Inc. released the 2.85V, 3400F addition to its K2 ultracapacitor cells, expanding the series' power range by 17 per cent and the energy range by 23 per cent.

Housed in the 60mm cylindrical "K2" form factor, the cell introduces enhanced reliability and performance with the company's DuraBlue shock and vibration technology.

DuraBlue technology is tested to some of the most demanding environmental requirements for transportation, according to Maxwell. The technology increases vibration resistance by approximately 300 per cent and shock immunity by 400 per cent compared with ultracapacitor-based competitive offerings.

"DuraBlue Advanced Shock and Vibration Technology combines Maxwell's unique and patented dry electrode formation and manufacturing process with a robust proprietary cell structure design to meet or exceed the most demanding shock and vibration requirements of the growing number of power-hungry applications in global transportation markets," said Maxwell Technologies CEO Franz Fink.

The K2 series ranges in capacitance from 1F to 3400F, and multi-cell modules ranging from 16V to 160V, which promises to deliver high power, whether used alone or paired with batteries, in a variety of applications from automotive or industrial to consumer electronics, transportation and beyond.
