The Powerstax FC Series of power modules are a range of specialised DC-DC converters developed for use with a fuel cell to deliver a stabilised output of up to 500W. The FC Series fuel cell power conversion brick is a derivation of the well-established Powerstax F Series.
In a standard full brick package, the Powerstax FC501 fuel cell power conversion brick has a wide input of 50–120VDC and these single output units are available with nominal output voltages of 15, 24, 28, 48 and 56VDC. The bricks can be paralleled to deliver high powers of up to 5kW.
The FC Series fuel cell power conversion brick has a comprehensive list of in-built protection functions such as input and output overvoltage protection, input undervoltage protection and short circuit protection which are complemented by unique features such as the thermal monitoring voltage which provides early warning of system failure.
Typical applications for the FC Series fuel cell power conversion brick are anything powered by a fuel cell in a rugged or sealed environment.
The Flexistax® FC1001 fuel cell power converter series uses the patented F501 series of brick converters driven from a 4 channel boost converter to allow the fuel cell voltage to be stepped up or down to that required by electronic equipment. Temperature, voltage and current control and monitoring, essential to the effective use of fuel cells, is provided via signals present on the interconnect PCB. The F501 brick converters provide the isolation, regulation and stability needed by modern, sophisticated electronics.
The Flexistax® FC1001 has a field proven pedigree of reliability with many thousands of derivative units having been supplied for mission critical applications.
