Easby Electronics Appointed UK Ultracapacitor Distributor for Nesscap

New franchise adds the industry's largest range of standard commercial ultracapacitors to existing capacitor and relays linecard

Richmond, North Yorkshire, UK,24th May 2012 - Easby Electronics has added ultracapacitors to its product portfolio, with its appointment as franchised distributor for the UK and Ireland by the Canadian company, Nesscap Energy Inc. a world leading manufacturer of ultracapacitors.

The distribution agreement enables Easby to offer the widest array of standard commercial products in the market, based on industry recognized alternative organic electrolytes. It is a natural extension to existing business built on capacitors and relays, with markets including transportation, power, and consumer.

Easby will supply the entire Nesscap range from the small 1.5F radial ultracapacitors and pseudo capacitors, through tabbed, cylindrical and prismatic cells (5000F) and cell balancing kits, up to fully balanced modules, which offer a plug and play solution enabling large systems to be easily implemented.

Long-lifetime Nesscap ultracapacitors operate for up to 500k cycles for small leaded cells, up to 1 million cycles for larger cylindrical cells. The devices require zero maintenance and offer excellent low-temperature capabilities. Functions such as engine start, start/stop, battery life extension and pulse power requirements are already benefiting from this technology. Other benefits to ultracapacitor customers include quality management systems approved to BS EN ISO 9001:2000 and TS16949.

“Adding ultracapacitors to the line card enables Easby to address a market that has seen very positive growth over the past few years,” said Tim Morris, Managing Director. “With a strong background of design-in and flexible customer support, we are very well placed to support the specialist area of ultracapacitors.”
