Industrial tracking devices can be subject to harsh conditions (constant vibration, with little opportunity for maintenance) and power supply challenges (closed systems, providing independent, secure power for long periods of time, supporting GPS, communications, and sensor functions).
CAP-XX supercapacitors, in conjunction with long-life Lithium or alkaline batteries, provide the additional power needed to run tracking and sensor applications simultaneously, function effectively in a wide temperature range (-40°C to +85°C), recharge rapidly, and reduce excessive battery loads, thereby reducing battery replacement frequency.
