Maxwell Technologies Launches Line Of High-Voltage Capacitors And Capacitive Voltage Dividers For Arctic Climates

ROSSENS, Switzerland, Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Maxwell Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: MXWL), a leading producer of energy storage and power delivery products, announced today that its Swiss subsidiary has introduced a line of high-voltage capacitors and capacitive voltage dividers (CVD) that operate normally at temperatures down to -60 degrees C for electric utility grid installations in regions that experience extremely low temperatures.

Maxwell Technologies SA's CONDIS® low-temperature products eliminate the requirement to install costly heating systems to ensure reliable operation of grid infrastructure in arctic climates.  The newly developed and qualified low-temperature products include capacitors for live tank (LT), dead tank (DT) and gas insulated switchgear (GIS) circuit breakers (CB), and CVD products as part of capacitive voltage transformers (CVT).

 Maxwell already has delivered the first sets of LT and GIS capacitors for grid infrastructure installations in Siberia and Canada.

"We undertook development of these products in response to industry demand for more cost-effective and reliable components to enable delivery of electrical energy to arctic regions such as Alaska and northern Russia and Canada," said Sacha Jenny, vice president and general manager of Maxwell SA. "These low-temperature capacitors and CVDs will give our customers a real competitive advantage, and because they are the industry's first products of their kind, we believe they will enable Maxwell to expand its presence and reinforce its leadership position."

Maxwell is a leading global supplier of high- and medium-voltage capacitor and CVD products for applications in electric utility infrastructure, rail transportation systems and other applications involving transport, distribution and measurement of electrical energy. CONDIS® capacitor products perform reliably for decades in dead tank, live tank and other high voltage circuit breaker and transformer applications. CONDIS® capacitive voltage dividers are used to measure voltage and power levels in overhead transmission lines.
