Illinois Capacitor is a leading manufacturer of miniature capacitors for electronics, lighting, energy and other markets. These products include: aluminum electrolytic, metalized film, power film, supercapacitors (ultra capacitors) and other types. IC is one of the world's most experienced capacitor manufacturers, well known for its benchmark quality, guaranteed delivery and responsive engineering support. This video is an introduction to the company, including its history and latest developments.
Capacitors can get so hot when they serve in induction heating applications that they demand cooling with water. Mark Gebbia explains how capacitors are designed to handle these sorts of applications which may entail special capacitor construction techniques that let the devices carry hundreds of amps of current.
Ultracapacitor modules are now built containing their own microcontroller. In this short video, Mark Gebbia explains why. It turns out that the handling of conditions such as overvoltage, overtemperature, and capacitor balancing can sometimes be best addressed with a controller dedicated to the capacitor bank.
A look at some of the latest applications.
