Fuel Cell Power Modules
Hydrogen Fuel Cells for UAVs and Drones
Our Fuel Cell Power Modules (FCPMs) for UAVs provide clean, efficient DC power from only hydrogen and ambient air, with zero emissions. With a higher energy-to-mass ratio than traditional battery systems, they can provide commercial UAVs with over three times the flight endurance, allowing you to maximise productivity, minimise downtime and achieve more in a single drone flight.
Fly Further | Fly Longer | Increase Productivity
Hydrogen cylinders are quick to refuel or swap out, and size can be specified for particular flight times and UAV payload capacities. Both FCPM and cylinder have multiple mounting possibilities, providing maximum flexibility for a variety of UAV airframes and missions. Custom cylinders can be commissioned for optimised flight time.
FCPMs are hybridised with a small battery, used to support the production of peak power and to provide redundancy. The system is vibration-free to prevent interference with drone cameras and other sensitive payloads.
Our FCPMs are available with 650W and 800W power outputs, as well as our latest 2.4kW fuel cell power module. They can be integrated into a variety of multi-rotor and fixed-wing UAV platforms, and can directly replace the UAV’s existing battery in many applications.
Two 2.4kW modules can also be linked in parallel to provide up to 4.8kW of power without the need for additional hardware. The module provides continuous power to the UAV and is hybridised with a small battery to manage peak loads.
