Original Press Release:
Tecate's PowerBurst® MCI Integration Kits Simplify the Packaging of Maxwell's MC Power Series Boostcap® Ultracapacitors
Kits' End Cap System Enables Easy Interconnection of 2, 4, or 6 Cells for Quick Proof of Concept Testing San Diego, CA, July 11, 2008...Announced today by Tecate Industries, a leading global supplier of ultracapacitors and capacitors, are PowerBurst® MCI Integration Kits. Offered to simplify the packaging and integration of Maxwell Technologies' MC Power Series Boostcap® ultracapacitors, the kits allow design engineers to easily, and efficiently create test modules for fast proof of concept. Kits notably boast Tecate's patented interlocking end cap system, which enables modules to be quickly assembled using the innovative "snap-together" feature incorporated into the design. This modular technology lets engineers effortlessly build application-specific modules in varied sizes and voltage configurations. Kits are provided with all the hardware and instructions required to build 2-, 4-, or 6-cell modules, and include printed circuit boards (PCBs) with voltage management circuitry, buss bars, washers, and retaining nuts. Ideal for fast prototyping of modules for use in industrial electronics, short-term UPS, power stability, cold engine starting and renewable energy applications, the assembled modules provide a "green" source of energy that can be delivered very quickly. PowerBurst MCI Integration kits are compatible with the full MC Series of round, terminal type ultracapacitors that consists of cells with capacitances ranging from 650 to 3,000F. The kits' voltage management circuitry monitors each cell, and protects each cell from entering an over-voltage condition. Should a cell experience an over-voltage condition, an LED will illuminate and the active circuit will discharge that cell. The LED will extinguish once the cell returns to nominal operation voltage limits. Optional battery posts, interconnect/power cables and metal side panels are available.
