More and more electrical devices are used in our everyday life, such as consumer electronics, safety devices or medical technology. The operation time of these devices is always limited to the capacity of the integrated batteries.
Using micro fuel cell systems, such devices can operate much longer independently from the power grid and have a reduced system weight at the same time.
Microvalves, highly integrable
Portable fuel cell systems are typically run with a gas-cartridge which can be exchanged when necessary. Such systems need to be small and light weight, and are normally trimmed to low energy consumption. These requirements are directly assigned to the micro valves that dose the gaseous fuel into the micro stack.
Our 7 mm-Spider®-Valves are specially designed for micro dosing purposes.
