Tecate Group Announces Immediate Availability of Hybrid 3.8 Volt Capacitors
Tecate Group announces the introduction of its new family of hybrid lithium-ion capacitors (LICs), with a maximum rated voltage of 3.8V. The TPLC™ series incorporates the key benefits of batteries (increased voltage and energy density) while maintaining the traditional characteristics of ultracapacitors (rapid charge/discharge, environmental friendliness, longevity, and safety). The TPLC™ series features a mechanically robust cylindrical footprint with a compact profile, increased maximum rated voltage of 3.8V—one and a half times higher than the 2.7V of conventional ultracapacitors—and an energy density four to ten times greater than current comparably sized ultracapacitor-based technology.

Military Takes Advantage of Tecate’s™ Unique Modules
You may have seen that Tecate Group, your source for ultracapacitor and capacitor solutions, recently distributed a press release discussing some exciting developments. In case you missed it, here is a summary.
As the applications for ultracapacitors grow, the military market segment has demonstrated an increasing need for custom ultracapacitor modules to address a variety of power challenges, and the military has now made an unprecedented turn to Tecate for assistance in filling this need.
Tecate is pleased to announce that its custom PowerBurst ultracapacitors have been the military’s solution. Based on the unique characteristics of ultracapacitors, which allow quick power delivery, superior low-temperature operation, and the ability to handle up to a million cycles, PowerBurst custom modules are replacing or augmenting batteries in a multitude of military applications, including backup power for electronics in military vehicles, fire control systems in tanks and armored vehicles, and airbag deployment; backup power/memory hold-up for emergency handheld radios; GPS guided missiles and projectiles; cold-engine starts and active suspension in military vehicles; Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs); buss voltage hold-up during peak currents; and meeting bridge power needs for data retention when switching from ground to on-board aircraft systems.
Ultracapacitors can replace batteries in short-term applications and allow for a dramatic reduction in the battery size in peak current applications. In addition, ultracapacitors are maintenance-free, which is a tremendous long-term benefit, eliminating both the high field replacement costs related to batteries and the need for toxic battery disposal.
Tecate Announces New Binning/Matched Pair Capabilities, offers matched triplets (sets of three matched capacitors), as well!
Tecate Group announces its expanded binning and matched pair test capabilities for SMT and through-hole capacitors. Tecate has been providing precision tolerance capacitors for various frequency-tuning, notched-filter, and bridge-network-balancing applications for many years, and its latest advancements now allow it to provide an even broader range of these value-added services to customers. Tecate’s capabilites:
Extend up to 100 bins;
Include a bin range down to 0.1% with a bin tolerance of +/- 0.05%;
Allow it to match pairs to within 0.002%; and
Introduce matched triplets (sets of three matched capacitors).
This company develops and manufactures innovative solutions in control technology for liquid and gaseous media flows with electrical actuation for high switching powers. The TPL-60/18x40F provides a fail-safe function by storing enough energy, in the event of a power failure, to return the valve to a defined safe position.
