Maxwell Technologies Inc., a producer of energy storage and power delivery products, has announced that its Swiss subsidiary has introduced a line of high-voltage capacitors and capacitive voltage dividers (CVDs) that operate normally at temperatures down to -60 degrees C.

According to the company, Maxwell Technologies SA's CONDIS low-temperature products eliminate the requirement to install heating systems to ensure reliable operation of grid infrastructure in arctic climates. The new products include capacitors for live tank, dead tank and gas-insulated switchgear circuit breakers, and CVD products as part of capacitive voltage transformers.

"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," says Sacha Jenny, vice president and general manager of Maxwell SA.
