The SCM series supercapacitor modules from KYOCERA AVX, offered by Rutronik, are highly durable components designed for industrial applications that demand exceptional peak performance. 

Ideal for high-current or industrial uses such as renewable energy production, grid storage, or power peak buffering, these modules are notable for their high capacitance, low equivalent series resistance (ESR), and superior pulse power capabilities. Additional details and components from KYOCERA AVX can be found on Rutronik's e-commerce platform, www.rutronik24.com.

Featuring active balancing, these supercapacitor modules ensure stable voltage levels across individual cells within the module. They can function independently or alongside batteries or accumulators, either as a backup energy source or to aid in managing power peaks, often enhancing the lifespan of the battery or accumulator involved.

The SCM series is available in several capacity/voltage configurations, including:

48V / 165F SCMZ1EP1F6STAB2
16V / 500F SCMZ1EK507STAB2
16V / 58F SCMA63K586SPPB2
160V / 5.8F SCMA63S585SPPB2
48V / 83F SCMZ85P836STAB2

These capacitors are distinguished by their exceptional pulse load capacity, achieved through a blend of high capacitance and minimal internal resistance, enabling high power density and efficiency. The modules are also designed to endure mechanical stresses, high currents, frequent charge/discharge cycles, and significant vibrations. Suitable for operating temperatures ranging from -40°C to +65°C, they are capable of enduring several million cycles, depending on the application. Moreover, the modules are lead-free, comply with RoHS standards, and meet UL 810A specifications.

Key features of the SCM series modules include:

Low ESR for enhanced efficiency and power density
Extended lifespan
Active balancing technology
Availability in common capacitance/voltage configurations
Potential applications for these modules span across:

Energy harvesting
Automated guided vehicles (AGVs)
Wireless GSM and GPRS communication
Backup support or peak power support in various applications
