ADETEL Equipment and JSR Micro NV announce the release of PowerLIC™, a Lithium Ion Capacitor (LIC) module for the transportation industry 

Ecully, France, February, 3rd 2016 – As a result of a joint collaboration effort, Adetel Group and JSR Micro N.V. announce the release of PowerLIC™, an Ultimo® Lithium Ion Capacitor (LIC) module. PowerLIC™ provides an answer to the increasing need for sustainable autonomy in the transportation industry (tramways, hybrid buses, light rail vehicles) in embedded systems or fast charging stations.

Certified to meet the transportation industry requirements, PowerLIC™ allows to double the energy density and lifetime compared to solutions available on the market today.  This advantageous performance comes in a reduced footprint. With hardly any maintenance required, the lowest operating cost is reached whilst its rackable format and individual safety integrity level (SIL2) allows safe and easy operation.

Materials inovation by JSR MIcroULTIMO ® Lithium Ion Capacitors, supplied by JSR Micro NV in Europe, are used as the energy storage device within the module. By changing the type of cell, the characteristics of the modules can be tuned in order to provide the optimum balance between energy and power at the lowest cost of ownership.

A Lithium Ion Capacitor is a type of hybrid super-capacitor, combining properties of Lithium Ion Batteries with properties of Electric Double Layer Capacitors. As a result, it offers a high energy density and a high power density in combination with an outstanding cycle life. Moreover, it is safe to use.
