About Capacitech Energy

Capacitech is bringing a new type of capacitor to market. This capacitor, unlike traditional capacitors, is built on the surface of a copper wire. Its performance is proportional to the length of wire the capacitor is built on. This essentially allows our customers to easily customize the performance (capacitance) of our capacitor by cutting the wire at different lengths. For electronics manufacturing companies, this cable-capacitor technology could significantly reduce costs associated to the logistics/inventory related to ordering, inspecting, and managing capacitors.
