Methanol fuel cell with remote monitoring

The Power Cell is a methanol fuel cell for low power long term applications

Description

Applicable to most instruments available through ESS, the Power Cell is a self-contained 12V DC power source than runs from methanol to provide secure, reliable power. An 8kg 10 litre methanol canister contains as much energy as a 322kg bank of sealed lead acid batteries, providing 10,000Wh of power for up to 12 months of operation for a typical low power sensor and data logger.

It can be used in conjunction with other power sources such as solar panels and large external batteries, and is available with an optional load cell for remote monitoring of fuel levels in telemetered applications.
