Fuel Cell Test Station PTS-500

Key features

  • Suitable for low-temperature PEM fuel cells
  • Convenient testing of short or full stacks
  • Automatic control of flow rate, humidity, temperature and back pressure individually for anode and cathode lines
  • Variety of water-cooled or regenerative electronic loads available
  • Stack temperature control with liquid cooling circuit
  • Robust system based on industrial PLC with data logging into SQL database
  • Safety features for fully automated operation
  • CE certificate of conformity


Ideally suited for verification of stack design on short-stack level or scale up to full-stack level. Well-defined and repeatable conditions of Leancat PTS-500 enable benchmarking of fuel cells also thanks to extensive scripting possibilities.
