Energy storage capacitors
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).
Energy storage capacitors are able to store extremely high energy in limited space without sacrificing reliability, quality and degree of accuracy of on board supply.
Main features are:
o Self-healing, metallized film capacitors;
o Self-healing, soggy foil – film capacitors;
o Aluminium foil – film or film/paper or paper capacitors.
High energy density and high pulse currents.
Icar achieves such performance by controlling the whole production process, from polypropylene to finished capacitors. The applications are different: EML and EMA, Laser, Portable Defibrillators, Plasma Research, Magnetizing Apparatus, Metal Forming, Cable Testing, Rock Fragmentation, Spot Welding, Impulse generators.
