ReliOn Launches Enhanced E-200 Fuel Cell System for Railroad and Telecommunications Customers

05 Dec 2013

ReliOn E200ReliOn has recently announced the launch of its newly enhanced E-200 fuel cell system. This product is fuelled by hydrogen and offers a number of features designed to improve customer usability, ease of maintenance, and performance. Upgrades to the E-200 fuel cell system were driven directly by feedback and input from existing customers and expand the reach of this unique power solution into additional market applications.

ReliOn’s E-200 fuel cell system boasts a net power output improvement of 14% over the rated power of the earlier version. As a load-following solution, the E-200 fuel cell system is suitable for projects requiring between 50 W and 200 W of backup, grid-supplement or off-grid continuous power and can easily be used in cooperation with other clean energy sources like solar and wind power. Additionally, the product offers an industry first field selectable 12, 24, 36 and 48 volt DC output. This feature offers the end user the ability to install the fuel cell system for a specific project and then, if equipment voltage at the customer site changes in the future, to change the voltage output of the fuel cell on site, without having to manage inventories or order new fuel cell equipment. The addition of the new 36 volt output option enables ReliOn to offer solutions to markets previously not addressed by fuel cells.

In terms of maintenance and servicing, the new E-200 fuel cell system offers a USB Type A port on the front panel for code upgrades, which will simplify the process for customers and technicians in the field. A front panel Ethernet port was also added to provide an additional mode of local/remote management of the system. The E-200 fuel cell system retains its high reliability and simple operation, offering several options for remote communication, monitoring, enclosure configurations, and hydrogen solutions from 8 kWh to more than 200 kWh.

The E-200 fuel cell system is currently being shipped to customers.
