Overview EFOY fuel cells

for professional users

Reliable Power, Anytime, Anywhere.

The EFOY models

EFOY fuel cells are the ideal power generators for a wide range of stationary and mobile applications, reliably generating electricity for weeks and months without user intervention. SFC’s EFOY fuel cells are based on two fuel cell technologies, DMFC (direct methanol fuel cell) and PEM (polymer electrolyte membrane). Our EFOY and EFOY Pro fuel cells are based on DMFC technology and our EFOY JUPITER fuel cells are based on PEM technology. The EFOY direct methanol fuel cells are available as EFOY and EFOY Pro models with an output of up to 500 W depending on the power requirements and user requirements. Our EFOY and EFOY Pro models are designed for different application purposes. The EFOY models are designed for temporary applications with low operating hours and are used as a back-up power supply for grid-connected or solar-powered hybrid installations. The EFOY Pro series is ideal for continuous operation and can also be used in hybrid operation. You can operate your application completely autonomously with the EFOY Pro, compensate for low solar output and use smaller solar modules. The EFOY JUPITER hydrogen fuel cell serves as a back-up power supply solution and ensures the power supply in case the power fails. EFOY fuel cells work completely automatically, quietly and are environmentally friendly.

EFOY fuel cartridges

Simply adapt the size of your fuel cartridge to your autonomy requirements. They were especially designed to be used with the EFOY fuel cells, and they can be replaced easily and cleanly within seconds.

EFOY fuel cartridges for industry applications are available with 5, 10, 28 or 60 litre capacities. The fuel cartridge manager (FM) makes it possible to operate several EFOY fuel cartridges on one EFOY. Depending on the model, two, four or eight fuel cartridges can be connected simultaneously.

More about EFOY fuel cartridges

In accordance with the CLP regulation, methanol is classified as toxic and flammable substance. Please refer to the safety data sheets for further information.

“Power in any weather”

Previously, we were not able to guarantee a reliable power supply using only solar power. The effort to replace batteries is significant. With the EFOY Pro, we are not only sure that the system has power in any weather but we also save a lot of money by not laying power cables.

Eric Recht, Hydroservices France

Quiet and environmentally friendly

Thanks to environmentally friendly power generation, the EFOY Pro can be used in nature reserves as well as in closed vehicles and rooms.

Questions and answers
to EFOY Pro

Why do I need an EFOY Pro fuel cell?

The EFOY Pro fuel cell is a fully automated battery charger that is quiet, simple and environmentally friendly, operating as a power generator in regions, where no grid connection is available, but a high power demand is needed. In off-grid industrial applications, that are not connected to the grid, the EFOY Pro fuel cell delivers reliable energy, in every weather condition – for security and surveillance, traffic regulation, remote sensors, etc.

What ist a fuel cell?

The EFOY fuel cell converts chemical energy into electrical energy without any interim stages, moving parts or much loss of efficiency. The underlying principle is an electrochemical process that is also known as "cold combustion". It is in principle the reversal of electrolysis. The EFOY fuel cells are based on DMFC (Direct Methanol Fuel Cell) technology. They generate power by using methanol provided in a fuel cartridge, in combination with oxygen from the air. Methanol is directly converted into power by the fuel cell. By products in the electromechanical process, include waste heat, water vapour and a small amount of carbon dioxide. Thus, a fuel cell is not an energy storage devise but an energy generating devise. For more Information:
Operating principle

How does the EFOY Pro fuel cell work?

The EFOY Pro fuel cell converts the fuel in the fuel cartridge direct into electrical current. Thanks to this direct conversion, which is performed with no moving parts, silent and environmentally friendly, the fuel cell is extremely efficient, clean and environmentally friendly.
