Smart fuel delivers continuous caravan and motorhome power:
The Smart Fuel Cell (SFC) uses methanol based technology to provide caravans and campervans with an alternate energy source that is efficient, reliable and safe. Conventional batteries providing power and light inside caravans and motorhomes drain quickly when a plug-in power source is not available during camping or touring. The SFC is ideal for caravans and motorhomes as it connects to the existing battery, automatically recharging it to maintain constant power in remote locations. It is maintenance free and supplies power for several thousand hours.
The SFC controls the state of charge and recharges batteries automatically, even when power consumption is higher in the extremes of winter and summer. Cell technology works by converting chemical energy directly into electricity, making the SFC highly efficient. The crucial technical difference between fuel cells and conventional batteries is the separation of the energy conversion and energy storage processes. The fuel cell will continuously produce electric current as long as gaseous or liquid energy sources are supplied. Both methanol and hydrogen are popular choices as a fuel source because they have a low operating temperature.
Methanol was chosen for the SFC because, unlike hydrogen, it is inexpensive, lightweight, safe and easy to handle. SFC methanol fuel cartridges can be changed in seconds, even during operation, to provide uninterrupted usage. Each SFC fuel cartridge is equipped with a safety valve to prevent spillage, protecting the user from contact with methanol. German company SFC Smart Fuel Cell AG has developed and produced the SFC with SFC technology now used in a variety of remote locations where conventional power is not available. It is a quiet alternative to diesel generators and is designed to operate in extreme cold and heat. The A50 is the most popular SFC model for caravans and motorhomes because it is small and weighs only 8kgs. The A50 can be easily installed under-floor or internally in the caravan or motorhome.
