3 and 6-volt capacitors operate at higher voltages
CORNELL DUBLIER DSF Series of higher voltage and high energy density supercapacitors, released under the Illinois Capacitor brand, provide a notable jump in voltage rating over typical supercapacitors to 3.0 WVDC for a single component and 6.0 WVDC for a dual-pack device. This higher voltage spec results in greater energy densities, which in turn saves space and may reduce the number of devices required. Product series includes 17 different value/voltage combinations, ranging in capacitance from 1.5F (Farad) to 600F, with voltage ratings from 3.0 to 6 WVdc. Multiple devices can be banked in series or parallel for even higher voltage or capacitance. ESR varies by part but is lower than most capacitors with similar storage capabilities. With an operating temperature range of -40°C to 85°C @ 2.5V (-40°C to +65°C @ 3.0V), the DSF is tolerant of wide-ranging operational environments.
