Off-grid power for domestic security - 1

Off-grid power for domestic security Reliable energy supply for undercover operations Reduction in operating costs Long autonomy Long deployment Security applications - whether they be static or mobile surveillance in vehicles - require an independent, reliable and ideally noise-free power supply. Semi-static and static surveillance systems also need to be able to operate uninterrupted in places where there is no mains connection. In security vehicles, the power supply to electrical consumers also needs to be ensured for long periods while the vehicle's engine is switched off. Idle running for battery charging purposes need to be avoided in order to increase the flexibility of the deployment vehicles and in order to avoid drawing attention during undercover op- erations. For both scenarios, a small, compact source of energy with little to no signature is needed. SFC fuel cells offer considerable advantages when it comes to supplying power to mobile and static security applications. They deliver off-grid power reliably, quietly and in an eco-friendly manner for weeks on end without any intervention on the part of the user, and if necessary in concealed or vandalism-proof locations. Numerous blue light and defence organisations worldwide are already relying on power from SFC fuel cells.

Examples of use Since the number of charging devices can now be reduced to one (SFC Power Manager 3G), the amount of storage space available to the user increases. The SFC Power Manager 3G is being used by the US Air Force, the German Bundeswehr and many other defence organisations. The portable JENNY 1200 fuel cells with a nominal power of 50 Watt is based on the multi-award-winning DMFC technology from SFC Energy for defence and security applications. It offers twice as much power than the JENNY 600S (25 Watt), which has already been launched and bears a stock number (NSN/VN), and which...

Energy solutions for undercover operations When covert semi-static and static surveillance systems are used at locations without a mains power connection, there are major demands of the power supply's autonomy. SFC offers power supplies for the static and covert supply of power to surveillance applications and law enforcement authorities. SFC fuel cells reliably supply power for weeks without a mains connection or the need for user intervention - silently, covertly, safe from vandalism and even in a format that can be buried. JENNY ND Terra and EMILY ND Terra The JENNY and EMILY ND Terra...
