Backup Power and UPS

Backup Power and UPS

Ultracapacitor energy storage provides multiple benefits to microgrids/islanded grids, independent distributed energy generators, and utilities. Maxwell Ultracapacitor products are uniquely suited to deliver excellent cost of ownership value by providing a long service life and excellent reliability. Within the context of a hybrid ultracapacitor + battery energy storage solution, ultracapacitors are utilized to perform fast response functions and extend battery lifetime.

On the grid, a reserve of power must be instantaneously ready to respond to a power outage/failure. Maxwell Ultracapacitors can supply rapid backup power as a "bridge” to maintain operations until a back-up generation source is brought on line.

    56 Volt UPS Module - Not Recommended For New Design

    Maxwell Technologies’ 56V series of ultracapacitor modules provide power during dips, sags in the main power source. In longer term outages, the modules provide transition/bridge power to a longer term back up source such as a motor-generator or fuel cell. For industrial applications, ultracapacitor modules provide power for graceful shutdown of process equipment.
