RE510 Educational PEM Fuel Cell

RE510 Educational PEM Fuel Cell

The RE510 Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel cell is one of the current leading contenders as a power source for use in motor vehicles. The fuel cell generates electrical power directly from hydrogen and air producing only pure water and heat as a by-product.

Unlike other educational units on the market the Hilton RE510 utilises an award winning module that is identical to those used in an actual vehicle power supply currently in production. This incorporates a unique membrane electrode assembly for the stack cells, each of which is internally reinforced and water cooled. This gives the cell a high watt density and allows students to investigate a practical fuel cell with a realistic output capable of driving significant electrical loads up to 0.75kW.

 An integral computer control system and data acquisition software allows automatic start-up and shut down with full safety monitoring, hydrogen detection and alarm system.
