Industrial applications require robust energy storage solutions that can operate reliably for long durations. Ultracapacitors have proven to be a superior technology for fulfilling many of these applications. They are used for example for backup power for various systems, including production lines and even factories.
Lead acid batteries power approximately half of all lifting and placement machines, such as forklifts. Ultracapacitors can significantly improve the performance and efficiency of these machines. Many forklift manufacturers are employing ultracapacitors to provide additional power and support to battery packs.
Just as forklifts benefit significantly from hybridization, other heavy equipment can use ultracapacitors to their advantage. Ultracapacitors can provide regenerative power to store energy during movement and release the energy as burst power for activities that require it.
Ultracapacitors also provide peak assistance by handling peak power demands and simultaneously reducing the stress on the batteries.
Ultracapacitor modules are an excellent solution for voltage regulation, maintaining power quality, and ensuring continuous power to production lines and facilities.
Power outage and poor quality power can be costly for commercial and industrial facilities, but ultracapacitor-based energy storage devices are perfectly suited to the task of providing uninterrupted power and regulating voltage for large- to small-scale operations.
