Rittal Modular Fuel Cell

Rittal have unveiled their new ready-to-connect modular fuel cell to supply back up power supplies for critical
processes that demand high-availability. RiCell is available in two different power classes with the larger
system supplying cascade power of 5, 10, 15 and 20kW. As the needs of industry in regards to UPS reside not only in the realms of kWs, a smaller version of 300, 600, 900 and 1200 watt output fuel cells will soon begin serial production.

The emergency power supply system is fully integrated into a Rittal Toptec CR climate controlled enclosure and may be supplied with hydrogen directly at the place of installation. The oxygen required by the system is obtained from filtered ambient air. The broader operational temperature range of the fuel cell stack, which varies between -33ºC to +50ºC, is far less sensitive compared to conventional battery-buffered back-up
systems, thus offering a major advantage since batteries require a constant internal temperature.

The ready to connect fuel cell consumes 16% less hydrogen than previous models of the same output (from
75 to 63 standard litres per minute for the 5kW model). In standby mode the new RiCells require minimal power.
