850 Fuel Cell Test System

SKU: FCTS850 Category:

The model 850 Multi-Range Fuel Cell Test System is a complete test station for operation and measurement of PEM/DMFC fuel cells.  The 850 is ideal for single-cell and short-stack fuel cell research and university programs.

The 850 combines a computer-controlled instrument with fuel handling hardware in an integrated bench-top unit. The 850 uses the proven 890 as the basis for the electronic load design. The powerful FuelCell® software package is included for controlling station operation.
