Fuel Cell Module 850mA 1.2V

Order code: SC5416
Purchase QTY: (Each)1+

Note: Prices do NOT include GST

A PEM (Proton Exchange Membrane) reversible fuel cell. Being reversible the uses are endless:
•     use to split water into hydrogen and oxygen or
•     combine hydrogen and oxygen back into water.

To split water into hydrogen and oxygen the fuel cell only needs distilled water, a 1.2 volt power source, liquid and gas containers.

To combine hydrogen and oxygen back to water you need gas containers and a suitable electrical load eg a small motor. This simulates the way a hydrogen powered car works.

The fuel cell needs ventilation to ensure heat dissipation.

An easy to use alternative to a Hofmann Voltameter.

Electrical specs: ~ 850mA, 600mW, 1.2V
Size: 64mm x 66mm x 32mm

Supplied with:
     • Reversible fuel cell
     • Plastic tubing to connect water/gas to fuel cell with red and black plugs to seal tube ends. Tube can be cut as required for different lengths
     • Syringe for filling the fuel cell with water
     • Leads to connect to a power supply (1.2 volt battery recommended)
