Farnell element14 Introduces Vishay Capacitors for Energy Harvesting

Farnell element14 is launching the Vishay hybrid storage 196 HVC ENYCAP™ capacitors which are portable, compact and facilitate high-energy storage.

Priced from £13.39 with price breaks for higher volumes the capacitors have the industry’s highest energy density (13 Ws/g) as well as polarised storage capacitor with high capacitance (up to 90 F).

Ideal as a storage device for energy harvesting, the capacitors are an alternative to rechargeable backup batteries as they can hold 70% of their charge for as long as a month.

They support voltages ranging from 1.4V (single cell) to 2.8V / 4.2V / 5.6V / 7.0V / 8.4V (multiple cells) and are available as stacked through-hole (STH, radial), surface mount flat (SMF) and lay-flat configurations (LPC) with wire and connectors.

Their low profile (2.5 mm) means they are the right size for portable and compact designs.

Hybrid Storage 196 HVC ENYCAP™ Capacitors are part of Vishay’s famous Super 12 range and are available with next day delivery.  For more information on the other products in the Super 12 range click here.
