ReliOn E-1100v Fuel Cell Product Offers Footprint Space Savings

Product has already found a market in Europe

Spokane, Wash.: ReliOn, the leading provider of high reliability fuel cell solutions for backup power applications, today announced its new E-1100v fuel cell system. The E-1100v fuel cell is a fully integrated system producing up to 1,100 Watts of power in an industry first vertical-mount chassis. The product was developed for use with customers for whom total footprint at small power levels is most important. The E-1100v fuel cell system is available in both 24V or 48V DC and has a variety of indoor and outdoor mounting options including rack, wall and cabinet.

Like all of ReliOn's fuel cell products, the E-1100v is a clean energy solution; emissions are limited to warm air and a small amount of water. The E-1100v system is exempt from the most stringent air quality standards, such as those set by the California Air Resources Board, because it produces no harmful emissions. The product is commercially available and began shipping at the end of 2011. First customer commitments have been received in Europe for the internal communications network of a premier electrical utility and an emergency backup power application for a Fortune 100 industrial customer.

Mark Cohen, ReliOn's Vice President of Product Line Management commented, "The E-1100v fuel cell system continues ReliOn's history of innovation and product improvement. For customer applications where space is an issue, this addition to our product suite offers a flexible option, while continuing to provide the high reliability and ease of use our customers have come to expect from ReliOn."

The E-1100v fuel cell system joins ReliOn's E-series product line – the E-200, E-1100 and E-2500 – which provides backup power solutions between 50W and 20kW. The company has delivered more than 4 megawatts of product at over 1,400 commercial customer sites in the United States and 34 additional countries. While many of ReliOn's customers are wireless telecommunication providers, the company also serves markets including wireline telecommunications, government, security, utility communications and transportation networks.

ReliOn products are used for backup power and site hardening in both traditional configurations and as part of a clean technology system integrated with solar and wind power. ReliOn continues its commitment to certifications and standards with products being tested or certified to stringent standards from CSA, UL, CE, Telcordia NEBS and China TTL Labs.
