Kikusui KFM-2150 fuel cell measurement and testing systems are available for purchase from Emona Instruments . These testing systems support fuel cell types ranging from single cells through to stack fuel cells up to 9000W.
Fuel cell tester software consists of three programs. These are the Configuration Tool, Condition Editor and Executive programs. The testing systems enable measurement of impedance of each fuel cell when combined with the KFM-2152 FC Scanner. They also provide panel control functions that enable a PC to be used to perform operations equivalent to the KFM-2150 panel operations.
The start up an shutdown sequences are friendly to fuel cells and these systems provide 2D/3D real time graph functions as well as test modes for I-V characteristics, constant current characteristics and Cole-Cole plot data with AC impedance method. They also enable:
- Fuel cell cycle tests by combining sequence functions
- Output of test results data as CSV files
- Observation of voltage and current wave forms during the current interrupt method
