Icar boasts long standing reputation for designing and producing fast discharge energy storage capacitors. As a matter of fact, in the ‘60s Icar was already producing such items for the leading technical and scientific research laboratories (among them: CERN, ENEA and CESI).
Technological innovation, developed since the early ‘90s on, has allowed gradual enhancement of operation gradient of such capacitors. The outcome presents devices able to store extremely high energy in limited space without sacrificing reliability, quality and degree of accuracy of on board supply.
The use of polypropylene for such purposes becomes significant only in the case of very high gradients, hence remarkable load voltage, from 2000 – 2500 V.
Icar achieves such performance by controlling the whole production process, from virgin polypropylene to finished capacitors.
