How the fuel cell works

Our Fuel Cell Systems

  • PM Module

    Our universal 19 inch ready to integrate fuel cell modules are suitable for the power class up to 8 kW in stationary use

    The very high reliability and low maintenance costs of fuel cell systems compared to conventional diesel and/or battery technology speak in favour of fuel cell technology as an energy source in the context of an emergency power application or in use as a grid backup system. With hydrogen as an energy carrier, almost unlimited bridging times can be realised.

    Typical areas of application:

    • Emergency power supply for:
      • Interlockings / Railway application
      • Telecommunications / Radio application
      • Securing critical infrastructures
      • Industry and data centres
    • Applications in combination with energy storage systems:
      • Energy self-sufficient residential buildings and industrial plants
      • Regenerating hydrogen from renewable sources
    • Off-grid energy supply (island solution)
    • Grid-connected systems for emergency power supply or grid support

    In addition, many other applications can be realised in which an efficient and environmentally friendly energy supply is required.

    The modular and universal fuel cell system for stationary applications

    PM - Frame

    The PM Frame is a modular and universally applicable fuel cell system for stationary applications. It contains the stack module, the heart of Proton Motor technology. The PM Frame was specially developed and manufactured by Proton Motor. In addition to the installed stack module, the fuel cell system “PM Frame” already contains the following systems:

    • Supply units for hydrogen
    • Supply units for reaction air
    • Cooling circuit
    • Control
    • Voltage distribution

    Multiple PM Frames can be connected and operated in parallel to achieve higher power.

    Our solution:

    With our in-depth know-how and over 20 years of experience in the development of fuel cell systems, Proton Motor offers fuel cell-based solutions for vehicle drives free of noise and pollutant emissions. As the perfect partner for vehicle manufacturers, original equipment manufacturers, suppliers of electric vehicle drive systems, vehicle integrators and operators of vehicle fleets for delivery and passenger transport, Proton Motor provides its customers with comprehensive and individual support in the layout, design and integration of fuel cell hybrid systems and in the development of fuel cell service networks.

    In order to compensate for the system-related disadvantages of pure battery drives, such as the high weight, short range and long charging times of the vehicle, Proton Motor offers the HyRange® as a sensible addition with our hydrogen-based fuel cell technology.

    Proton Motor has many years of experience in the field of fuel cell hybridisation in combination with batteries and also in conjunction with capacitor technology.

    The modular system design allows OEM partners to easily integrate it into a wide range of installation conditions. By specifically adapting the power of the fuel cell system and the application-specific design of the battery, it is possible to vary between pure plug-in hybrid operation and pure range extender operation and optimally adapt them to the respective requirements. In this way, power outputs greater than 30 kW can also be easily realised by combining the standard assemblies.

    With specially developed simulation software, Proton Motor can thus individually dimension the battery, fuel cell and hydrogen tank/storage for almost any application. This can be done for an individual vehicle as well as for a complete fleet of vehicles within a vehicle fleet. For this purpose, Proton Motor offers a fleet analysis as a customised service.
