H-500 PEM Fuel Cell - 500W
500W PEM Fuel Cell Stack Overview
At the 500-watt level this fuel cell stack that can perform a number of functions. It can be used to build power backup generators for a home office, or it can be integrated into something like an electric bike to provide some power assistance for long trips. In remote locations with higher power demands this fuel cell stack can also shine with its higher power output. Hydrogen fuel cell technology is the ideal alternative to diesel and gasoline generators.
This fuel cell stack also comes with the following:
- Connection Tubing
- Electronic Valves
- Electronic Control Box
- Fuel Cell On/Off Switch
- SCU On/Off Switch

500W Fuel Cell and Hydrogen
Do not insert or disconnect power cables when the fuel cell stack is turned on. Warranty is void if the fuel cell stack is disassembled or otherwise tampered with. Hydrogen is a colorless, odorless, and flammable substance. Always operate and store the fuel cell stacks and hydrogen storage canisters in an area with ample ventilation. Fuel cell systems should always be equipped with a highly accurate hydrogen sensor to detect any leaking hydrogen within the system or from the hydrogen storage canister. Please refer to the H-500 User Manual to read all of the safety requirements for the product.
