Examples of Applications

  • Applications
  • Backup
  • Space saving
  • Long lifetime in a high temperature environment
  • High temperature reliability

Backup power source

Capacitors immediately supply power when the power is shutoff from the main power source
These capacitors utilize the high output characteristics to provide backup for equipment operations using the power stored in the capacitors when the supplied power fluctuates or is lost. Long lifetime characteristics can be utilized to avoid replacement of the power storage devices used for backup.
