EFOY FUEL CELL
Reliable Mobile Energy - Power where it's requiredPlease use our contact page to request technical details and our low prices.
Finding reliable energy for remote applications can be a real challenge. Batteries are heavy and go dead quickly, so they don’t provide a long-term solution. Generators are noisy, dirty and require lots of maintenance. The default solution is solar modules. Once installed, they deliver electricity courtesy of the sun. There's one problem though: when the weather's bad, power production drops dramatically and devices may stop operating. That's why solar modules often need to be oversized and equipped with large batteries to make sure that they continue producing power even in bad weather.
How an EFOY Pro/solar hybrid system works
The EFOY Pro connects directly to the battery and monitors voltage continually. The fuel cell kicks in automatically only if output from the solar cells drops below a certain threshold, guaranteeing that the battery stays charged even in bad weather. Devices continue to run reliably, around the clock.
Robust and maintenance-free
Lightweight and compact
Quiet and emission-free
Automatically charges12 V and 24 V batteries
Hybrid compatible - ideal for combining with solar energy systems
100% reliable power around the clock, in any weather
The EFOY Pro/solar hybrid combines the best of both fuel cell and solar technologies.
Good weather - the sun
In a fuel cell/solar hybrid system, the solar module provides all the power when the sun is shining. The EFOY Pro remains in standby mode as long as the sun delivers free energy.
Inclement weather, darkness, winter - a fuel cell
In bad weather, solar cells can't deliver enough power and so, battery voltage drops. Once the charge falls below a certain threshold though, the fuel cell automatically cuts in, recharges the battery, and then returns to standby mode.
A hybrid system consisting of the EFOY Pro and a solar system offers cost advantages. You no longer have to construct oversize solar panels and you can keep battery size to a minimum.
An EFOY Pro/solar hybrid system is also economical. When the sun is shining, less fuel is needed. More importantly, though, you no longer have to replace batteries. That means lower personnel and logistical costs.
Easy to integrate
Use plug and play to integrate the EFOY Pro into new or existing solar systems.

The EFOY Fuel Cell Offers:
Robust industrial construction
EFOY Proare delivered in a robust metal casing. The integrated user interface allows monitoring and control directly on the unit.
More freedom when refuelling
EFOY Procan be hooked up directly to all EFOY Fuel Cartridges. Selecting the optimum size of fuel cartridge for your requirements allows you to optimise the weight and operating time of your appliance.
More flexible installation in your appliance
EFOY Procan be fitted in your appliance in a variety of ways. Thanks to the extended fuel cartridge hose, the positioning of the fuel cartridge can be chosen freely for example beneath the EFOY Pro.
One for all - charges 12 V and 24 V batteries
EFOY Proare compatible with 12 V and 24 V batteries. The integrated charge control system identifies the battery in use and automatically adjusts the charge process accordingly.
EFOY Pro 1600 Longlife
EFOY Pro 1600is optionally available as longlife version.
When purchasing a EFOY Pro 1600 Longlife you receive an extended term of guarantee.
