Custom-designed capacitors for specialist applications

Custom super capacitors

Our passive capacitor expertise extends from small, low-capacitance devices to those needed for high-energy storage. By working with the world’s best manufacturers, we offer a service to customers who are designing sophisticated systems for sectors including:

  • rail
  • automotive
  • renewable energy, and
  • power supply.

These are all industries where high-energy storage helps to make systems more efficient and more practical and where fast release of energy is important to overall performance. These designs often require tailor-made components, including passive capacitors, and we are ideally placed to give you the best service in this area.

The benefits of super capacitors

Super capacitors are often used as an alternative to standard batteries, and there are several reasons why system designers and engineers in these sectors prefer the capacitor solution. Custom designing these devices offers more flexibility, as modules can be built in the shapes and sizes that make the best use of space in your design. In addition, capacitors are lighter weight than batteries, are maintenance-free and reliable, making them the perfect choice for challenging environments or locations where maintenance will be difficult or expensive.

Use our experience to build the best

Acal BFi have significant technical expertise in specifying super capacitors to meet the needs of a varied customer base. We can help you throughout the design and development process and handle the management of the super-capacitor element of your project, from supplying samples to providing quantities for your production cycle.
