The Boostcap 125-V heavy-duty transportation module HTM125 from Maxwell Technologies is a flexible energy-storage solution to power buses, trains, and trucks. The unit integrates ultracapacitor cell technology with balancing, monitoring, and thermal-management capabilities to ensure charge/discharge performance. With a 15-year operational life, the HTM125 meets transportation industry requirements for energy and power density. The implementation of low-resistance elements throughout the design improves energy output and reduces losses associated with heating. Designed for harsh conditions, the module features a robust enclosure, IP65 junction box, and easy integration for minimal downtime.
