Stationary and Portable Power

IE-Lift™ MHE


Running on hydrogen and oxygen from the air, the IE-Lift™ is designed to contain everything that the fuel cell needs to
produce clean DC power. Single or multiple parallel connected IE-Lifts™ form the heart of a fuel cell replacement for an electric industrial battery tray or tank. This enables the operational advantages of fuel cell power (quick fuelling time vs long charging times or capital cost and time to swap batteries; constant power; etc) to benefit your application.

Lower power 24V battery based applications will usually be met with a single module and higher power 36V and 48V battery based applications will often use multiple modules. Provided in a power-dense and easy to install package. Just add regulated storage, typically cylinders, with associated safety systems, hybrid electrical battery or supercapacitor, both sized for your application together with controls. A range of accessories is available to aid installation and
integration into your application.
