ELTON asymmetrical electrochemical capacitors are a new class of energy storage devices that fit the functional niche between regular capacitors and batteries. Electrochemical capacitors are able to quickly accumulate and deliver energy an order of magnitude higher than regular capacitors. In turn, compared to batteries, electrochemical capacitors have higher specific power and can last for over one million charge-discharge cycles. They do not require maintenance and demonstrate high reliability in extreme temperatures. These characteristics ensured increasing use of electrochemical capacitors in hybrid vehicles, engine cranking systems, quality energy systems and with renewable energy sources.





Renewable Energy

Pitch control in large wind generators is an example of the use of electrochemical capacitors in renewable energy systems. The risk of wind turbine failure when there is no load when it disconnects from the grid is eliminated by the use of such capacitors.
Modern wind turbines have three blades. Each blade is controlled by [Read more]






Cold starting modules

From 1998, over 3 thousand capacitor modules designed to start truck and bus engines have been supplied to the United States. Kold Ban International (KBI), the company’s official dealer in the United States, sells ELTON’s products under the KAPower trademark.
According to Road Star, an influential US magazine, the starting module based on electrochemical [Read more]
