Testing stations

Out of the need to test our own catalysts and cells we came to developing our own testing stations - we know very well what customers expect and we can offer professional and affordable solutions for your measuring and testing needs.

General parameters

  • Power range up to 130kW
  • Full electronic control of process parameters
  • Stack / single cell testing
  • Hydrogen PEMFC/ DMFC/ SOFC testing
  • Safety shut-down with nitrogen purging
  • Optional electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS)
  • High quality components (e.g. Bronkhorst MFCs)


Automation and control SW

  • core of our testing stations is industrial PC from B&R Automation (Austria)
  • manual or automatic operational mode following predefined scripts
  • control through web-based visualization accessible from any device with browser
  • predefined scripts such as volt-ampere curve can be generated using user interface without any coding
  • results of tests are stored in Postgres SQL database, export to .csv format
  • secure VPN connection for remote access
  • diagnostics of fault states including event logging
  • emergency stop button and hydrogen leakage sensor for safe operation


    Specification

  • 4 core 1,6 GHz Intel Atom CPU
  • 8 GB RAM
  • 256 GB SSD drive for storage of database data
  • desktop client PC with keyboard and mouse for user interface access
