Product Overview

EFOY 900 / 1800 / 2800

EFOY Fuel Cells are the ideal power generators for a wide range of stationary and mobile applications. They generate electricity reliably for weeks and months without user intervention. The EFOY direct methanol fuel cells are available as EFOY and EFOY Pro models with an output of up to 500 W depending on the power requirements and user requirements. Our EFOY and EFOY Pro models are designed for different application purposes. The EFOY models are designed for temporary applications with low operating hours and are used as a back-up power supply for grid-connected or solar-powered hybrid installations. The EFOY Pro series is ideal for continuous operation and can also be used in hybrid operation. You can operate your application completely autonomously with the EFOY Pro, compensate for low solar output and use smaller solar modules.

Remote monitoring with EFOY Cloud

EFOY Fuel Cells are often used in remote locations and require the option of secure remote access. The EFOY Cloud gives you access to your methanol fuel cells from anywhere so you can monitor continuous operation via laptop, tablet or smartphone. All you need for this is an Internet connection to your fuel cells. You can, for example, track the current operating status of each of your fuel cells, historical data or fill levels of the EFOY fuel cartridges. If necessary, configure battery parameters and receive the firmware updates completely automatically. The integrated alarm management informs you, for example, by email of upcoming fuel cartridge replacements or a battery voltage that falls below the threshold.

Extend the self sufficience with the EFOY Fuel Cartridges Manager

The Fuel Manager (FM) allows you to operate several EFOY fuel cartridges with one EFOY. Depending on the model, two, four or eight fuel cartridges can be simultaneously connected. The Fuel Manager automatically switches from the empty one to the next full fuel cartridge and ensures a long self sufficiency without user intervention.

Control and configuration via control panel or the EFOY app

The control panel in the EFOY makes it possible to easily operate the EFOY and the EFOY Pro Fuel Cell. With just a few clicks, you can view information about the current operation of the fuel cell, such as the average charge duration, the battery voltage, the current charging current as well as the fuel cartridge fill level. Battery parameters can always be adapted to special requirements. You can also access this data via Bluetooth or your EFOY app. All you need to do this is the EFOY Bluetooth adapter.

Optional accessories for EFOY and EFOY Pro1

EFOY Fuel Manager (FM)

The EFOY Fuel Manager makes it possible to operate 2, 4 or 8 fuel cartridges. Not compatible with EFOY Pro 12000 Duo.

DuoCartSwitch DCS1

The DCS1 DuoCartSwitch allows the operation of up to four fuel cartridges. Only compatible with EFOY Pro 12000 Duo.

Fuel cartridge sensor

The fuel cartridge sensor is used to measure the methanol level in the fuel cartridge. It will indicate when the fuel cartridges need to be changed.

Modem/Router

The modem and router are used for remote monitoring of the EFOY Pro Fuel Cells.

EFOY Bluetooth Adapter

The EFOY Bluetooth adapter makes it possible to control the fuel cells via the EFOY app. Not compatible with the EFOY Pro 12000 Duo.

M28 Adapter

An interim attachment is used to connect the M28 fuel cartridges to the fuel cell or to the Fuel Manager.
