Lamina® micro fuel cell has a laminated design which gives it unique properties
The micro fuel cell Lamina® has a patented laminated design that gives it unique properties: It is thin, light and modular, scalable and flexible. Therefore, it can be easily mounted in limited spaces where traditional stacked fuel cells cannot fit. At the same time, Lamina delivers the highest possible energy density per volume and surface area.
Lamina’s® standard box has room for 24 Lamina® modules, which together generate 240 W, a
suitable power for logistics robots and e-bikes. At the same time, the Lamina architecture is
scalable and therefore the customer can get any desired power, for example seven modules in one box (70 W) or ten interconnected boxes (2,400 W).
Lamina® can be combined with accumulators, e.g. batteries, in hybrid solutions that create a reliable energy and power system. It is a combination that enables high electrical performance and optimizes the lifetime of the accumulators.
An assembled Lamina® with 24 modules provides an output of 240 W.
The Lamina® technology's measurable benefits compared to traditional fuel cells
Lamina® fuel cells are not only lighter, more compact and therefore more flexible than traditional stacked fuel cells. Above all, they are more cost-effective. Expressed in numbers:
premises space is also reduced.
Planar Lamina Solution allows packaging in small areas.
