Fuel Cell Systems: Fuel cells for security applications

IFSEC-FIREX-TechTalks-20In the video below, Fuel Cell Systems explains why three of its fuel cells are particularly well-suited to security applications. The team has a range of customers in the security sector, where its solutions are primarily used for when off-grid, quiet, remote power is required, such as for CCTV systems at remote locations.

The environmentally friendly power solutions are based on hydrogen fuel cell technology, with bespoke power and refuelling systems available to meet different project demands. The three fuel cells on display operate via different fuel cell technologies, and include the ethanol-based EFOY fuel cell, solid oxide-based Sunfire Remote 400 fuel cell, and the 800M Intelligent Energy series. Fuel Cell Systems explains the benefits of each, why they are suitable to security-based systems and provides some guidance for installation.

Questions coming in from the audience included:

  • How long will a fuel cell system power a CCTV camera for?
  • Is it possible to remotely monitor the fuel cell system?
  • What are some of the current off-grid projects you’re working with in supplying power to a security system?
  • What about in volatile weather systems? Will your fuel cells be able to withstand heavy rain/snow/winds?
  • We’ve previously used batteries or generators for our off-site security provisions – what are the benefits of fuel cells over these?
