FastCAP’s Record Breaking Ultracapacitors Are Now Available For Direct Sale

FastCAP Systems is excited to announce the launch of a line of high temperature, ruggedized, and hermetically sealed ultracapactors that surpass the performance metrics of any on the market today. These devices are well suited for applications requiring rechargeable high power energy storage in a ruggedized format including aerospace, defense, industrial, automotive, and grid systems. The ultracapacitors will be available for direct sale beginning February 8, 2016.

“These are the world's only ruggedized ultracapacitors with rated operation up to 150°C, and high shock and vibration tolerance,” said Dr. John Cooley, CTO of FastCAP Systems. “To date, FastCAP has successfully demonstrated the utility of these components in harsh oil and gas drilling conditions where they provide high power bursts of electromagnetic telemetry signals from thousands of feet underground.”

FastCAP will be offering these components for sale on its website in two different form factors and three different temperature ranges up to 150°C.

About FastCAP Systems:
FastCAP is an innovation driven company with a straightforward vision – to make a big impact in energy. In 2010, after six years of collaborative research at MIT by FastCAP’s co-founders, FastCAP began work under a multi-million dollar grant from the DOE ARPA-E to develop its novel ultracapacitor technology for electrified drivetrain vehicles. FastCAP was honored to receive another grant in 2011 from the DOE Geothermal Technologies Program to develop a cutting edge power system for geothermal exploration. By the conclusion of its ARPA-E program in 2014, FastCAP had achieved five validated world performance records related to the power and energy density of its cells. FastCAP has gone on to achieve additional validated world records related to its high temperature ultracapacitor technology, including the highest operating temperature. These breakthrough performance characteristics have laid the foundation for FastCAP’s unique product solutions in a wide variety of applications, from vehicles to energy and space exploration.
