Ioxus; improved starting reliability using ultracapacitors

Ioxus, an XS Power Battery Company, designs and manufactures ultracapacitor based starting systems that improve starting reliability, reduce maintenace costs, and improve sustainability. Top quality batteries and capacitors, our products improve the life of energy storage systems. Large scale storage systems for microgrids are also available with both ultracapacitor and batteries (lead and lithium).

  • uSTART
    Ultracapacitor based starting system, with smart power electronics, designed to improve starting reliability and increase the life of related batteries. Designed for a 15-year life, uSTART will ensure there is always energy to start....

  • uSTART is a Smart Power ultracapacitor based product for vehicles that improves starting reliability, improves vehicle voltage health, improves battery life, and improves sustainability. With a 15-year design life, you will never change your uSTART again.

    Reducing lead acid battery count in most cases, and reducing maintenance costs associated with low voltage conditions, the uSTART will ensure that your vehicle is ready to start, always. Eliminating thousands of pounds of lead and sulfuric acid from needing to be mined, refined, shipped, and recycled, the uSTART is a major sustainability enhancement for your fleet.

    Improved voltage conditions lead to longer lasting starters, relays, engine control modules, and greatly improved down-time due to prematurely aged components, creating a higher reliability of starting when you need to, every time.

    Using our Smart Power power electronics, the unit supplies nearly all of the cranking current during engine starts. For short stops, such as during a delivery, the uSTART provides the energy to the electrical bus to support ancillary devices until a crank is initiated.  uSTART stores a relatively small amount of energy compared with a battery, but it delivers engine cranking current. For more information about uSTART, please see the Product Info box to the upper right.

    The uSTART will turn on automatically when it sees alternator voltage for the first time. The unit will also turn itself off (go into maintenance mode) once one of the terminals are disconnected, after approximately 5 seconds. The Bluetooth app can also be used to turn the unit on (“Run” mode), off (“Maintenance” mode), or a jump start can be initiated using the app without connecting any additional wires.

    The jump start mode will initiate a charge sequence, collecting energy from the battery. Once the uSTART is charged, the uSTART will assist the low batteries to provide the power the crank the engine.

    The 12V uSTART is designed to work with at least one 12V battery connected in parallel, and the unit needs at least 6V to be able to turn on. Often, when installing the uSTART, one or more batteries can be removed.

  • X-Series
    Ioxus modules, or iMOD X-Series®, have a wide voltage range, can deliver and absorb a high current, perform under a wide range of climate conditions, and have a long life cycle....

  • The X-Series® product has been selected as the design choice across the globe.

    Ioxus, iMOD X-Series® modules, made with cylindrical or prismatic pouch cells, have a high voltage range, can deliver and absorb a high current, can perform under a wide range of climate conditions, and have a long life cycle. They are designed to hold multiple cells to attain any voltage requirement in the most efficient way possible. We have several highly effective modules, ranging from 16 Volts to 128 Volts. They allow for hundreds of thousands of charge/discharge cycles with minimum changes in performance over the life cycle of the product. Available with various balancing schemes and communications, modules allow our customers to integrate ultracapacitors with much less design efforts compared to single cells.

    X-Series® has a wide voltage range, can deliver and absorb a high current, perform under a wide range of climate conditions, and have a long life cycle. Since most applications require voltages higher than a standard cell, users of these modules can implement them much easier than single cells.

    We have several highly effective modules, ranging from 16 Volts to 128 Volts. Our modules use iCAP® cylindrical cells and can be connected in series up to 2000V with no additional balancing required. The X-Series® can also be connected in parallel to satisfy higher energy requirements.

    A single design, creating 22 individual modules, which can be arranged in any configuration by the customer, allows for tremendous flexibility at the application level, allowing each customer to right-size the capacitance and voltage for their specific requirements, while using off-the-shelf products.

    Several options are available upon request, and when reviewing the datasheet, the options are coded into the part number. These options include Analog communications, Digital communications, CAN communications, as well as Liquid Cooling.

    Integrated heat-sinks, built-in mounting which use standard hardware, optional Digital, Analog, or CAN communications allow for any end-use possible. With 5,000V hi-pot, shock and vibration certification for all transportation applications, and field serviceable electronics all wrapped in an IP-67 rated unit, these modules are ready to service your application for many years with no maintenance.

    All X-Series® modules are designed to be liquid cooled. If you are interested in purchasing modules w/o CAN Communication and/or modules with liquid cooling, please contact the Ioxus sales team.
