VISEDO electric and hybrid drivetrain product launch
New game changing ultracapacitors
Win VIP passes to 2016 electric drag bike world speed challenge APC HiRel, a business unit of Advanced Power Components, will be launching two new product ranges at LCV 2015. VISEDO electric and hybrid drivetrain products and Ioxus Titan™ high temperature ultracapacitors both provide automotive engineers with new solutions to improve the performance and efficiency of on- and off-road vehicles.
New: Visedo electric and hybrid drivetrain products
Visedo electric and hybrid drivetrain products are key to the hybrid and electric vehicle market. PowerSERIES components have been specifically developed for use in harsh environments to meet the heavy duty requirements found in off-highway machines, marine vessels and bus applications.
The range, which is now available with full, nationwide engineering support from APC HiRel, includes all essential components required to convert traditional drivetrains into electric or hybrid electric units, with a power range of 30-500 kW. Visedo Marine hybrid and electric drivetrain components are available with a power range of up to 1.6 MW.
New: Ioxus Titan™ high temperature ultracapacitors
Designed and manufactured in North America, Ioxus Titan™ high temperature ultracapacitors are now available in the UK through APC HiRel. Optimised for the highest performance with the lowest possible resistance, Ioxus Titan™ high temperature ultracapacitors can be used over a temperature range of -55°C to +85°C. Lightweight, compact, long lasting and 95% recyclable, they drastically increase system peak power when combined with other energy sources.
Ioxus Ultracapacitors’ super-fast energy charging and delivery times make them ideal for use within hybrid systems, taking the strain from standard batteries during start up phases. This can significantly extend battery life without a drop in performance during lower temperature conditions.
The Ioxus range offers the broadest cell product line available, including both standard and custom made ultracapacitor modules.
Competition: win passes to 2016 electric drag bike world record attempt
Ioxus Titan™ high temperature ultracapacitors, supplied by APC HiRel, are a critical feature of a new drag bike being designed to break the electric drag bike world record. Visitors to the stand can see the UK’s previous record breaking bike, see the engineering plans and innovations for the new bike – and are invited take part in a draw to win two passes to the 2016 record attempt at Santa Pod.
2011: Phil Edwards of Weald Technology set the UK electric drag bike record, recording a time of 14.124 seconds for a standing ¼ mile.
2012: an American bike smashed the record in half, recording a time of 6.940 seconds.
2016: Phil and his design team from Kingston University plan to reclaim the title with a target time of 6 seconds for a standing ¼ mile.
The instant power delivered by the Ioxus ultracapacitors is an important innovation on this latest design.
