Our high-efficiency Performer Series is designed as a line of battery tenders to undergo many thermal cycles. These products provide up to 8kW in remote, harsh environments and are highly durable, thanks to the proprietary microtubular stack design that provides built-in redundancy.
Core advantages of Performer products:
Can cycle at least 250 times for 3000 hours
Excel even in extreme cold because they’re engineered to store, start and operate in temperatures from -40°C to 50°C
Constant 250W or 1kW output, with no degradation at end of life
Fuel-efficient, with 80 hours of run time on just 20 lbs of propane
Need no routine maintenance
Lightweight and easy to install with just a few screws
Benefits Of The Performer Series
With our Performer Series, your critical infrastructure stays up regardless of weather, grid failure or disaster conditions. So maintainers don’t go into dangerous environments to refuel, repair or replace equipment.
And larger supplies of propane provide an even longer duration between refueling visits.
With the latest-generation P250i power system, we solicited customer feedback to ensure we built the features that are essential in the field:
- Fuel throttling at end of life
- Standalone fuel reset button
- Requiring just a few screws to install
So you can rely Performer products to be simple to maintain and highly reliable.
Performer Series products are also drop- and subject-tested to simulate how they might react to being tossed into a truck, riding on a trailer or operating beside a railroad. So you never have to worry about vibration impact to your system.
Built-in serial communications technology allows for remote monitoring, providing 24/7 real-time insight into system operation — or your fleet. Get alerts about key status conditions, performance updates and low fuel notices so you can time refueling visits when it’s convenient for you.
Have undergone rigorous shock, vibration and drop testing to ensure systems will perform in any environment.
Have no major moving parts, as fuel filtration is external. The only maintenance required is a restack after 3,000 hours of use.
Made of heat-resistant ceramic tubes and excel in extreme temps, from – 40°C to 50°C. Fuel cell reaction produces no liquid water, so Performer products will not freeze.
Fuel is consumed only when the battery needs recharging, meaning low fuel needs.
At 19 lbs for P250i and 60 for P1000, Performer products are easy to move.
Built-in serial communications and IP data logging allow for remote monitoring, so you can schedule refueling visits in advance.
Fuel throttling at end of life ensures constant power output, so the Performer system will always keep up with your load.
With just a few screws for the mounting feet and rails, even maintainers with no previous knowledge can quickly install.
Wide input voltage range (8-60VDC) with no internal battery to be recharged or jump-started.
Can be controlled as a fleet thanks to remote monitoring.
Easy to integrate into solar, wind, or other infrastructure with minimal effort.
Use Cases for Performer Series
Flexible enough for a range of low-watt commercial applications and tough enough to power through even the harshest of conditions. Here are just a few industries that rely on Performer Series.
Stay connected when it matters most, with Performer Series products backing up critical communications infrastructure.
From railway signals and switches to traffic monitoring, Performer Series keeps trains moving. Literally.
With Performer Series keeping surveillance systems up in a crisis, you can rest assured that vital assets won’t be compromised.
If you need maintenance intervals timed with the seasons, using Performer Series means you can easily plan site visits according to your schedule.
Uninterruptible Power Supply
Generators need healthy batteries to start up, and Performer Series can keep them charged so they’re ready for use.
How They Work
Optimized For Durability
Individual fuel cells are bundled into a stack, using a proprietary microtubular design that provides superior efficiency thanks to power control electronics integrated into a single thermal package. This built-in redundancy means the stack continues to work even if one tube goes down.
Each tube is a fuel cell that can generate 5-15W of power. We use readily available cold- and high-temperature sealing technologies to combine the tubes into a larger, more durable, and highly resilient stack.
And unlike other types of fuel cells, ours produce a constant power output and do not become brittle or degrade with age. Performer products are designed to operate for 250 cycles or 3,000 hours before needing a restack.
Easy to Integrate
Performer Series products are flexible enough to add into new installations or integrate with existing systems.
