Solved Servo Applications

Hydrogen Fuel Cell


Hydrogen fuel cells are viable sources for battery powered systems in a variety of applications. Vehicles can include: movers, forklifts, automobiles, buses, boats, etc. As well, these systems are used as primary / backup power for commercial, industrial and residential uses. The cells convert hydrogen’s reactive chemical energy into electricity based on the volume / flow rate from the oxygen supply, typically from air, with no environmental concerns.

Motion Needs

Precise control of the flow of oxygen over the fuel cell’s stack

Customer Requirements
