DALLAS, Sept. 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Maxwell Technologies, Inc.
(Nasdaq: MXWL) unveiled a compact, fully integrated, 48-volt multi-cell BOOSTCAP(R) ultracapacitor module for heavy-duty transportation and industrial energy storage and power delivery applications here today at the American Public Transit Association Annual Meeting and EXPO, where it is on display at Booth 3135 with ISE Corporation.

Richard Smith, Maxwell's executive vice president for strategic business development, said that the new BMOD2600-48 module consists of 18 2.7-volt BOOSTCAP MC2600 cells based on a recently announced technology breakthrough that enables the cells and multi-cell modules to store more energy and deliver more power per unit volume and last longer than any other commercially available ultracapacitor products.

"In addition to meeting or exceeding demanding transportation and industrial application requirements for both watt-hours of energy storage and watts of power delivery per kilogram, these products will perform reliably for more than one million discharge-recharge cycles." Smith said. "The proprietary material science on which they are based also significantly reduces manufacturing cost, positioning Maxwell to achieve our stated goal of pricing large cell ultracapacitors at one cent per farad in multi-million-cell annual volumes."
