Fuel Cell Testing Software

FuelCell® is a powerful, yet easy-to-learn software package for use with the Scribner Associates Series 840, 850, 855 and 890 Fuel Cell Test Systems.  FuelCell is technology independent and may be used with PEM FC, DMFC, PAFC, MCFC, or SOFC type fuel cells. 

FCViewTM is a powerful utility for analyzing, graphing and comparing data collected with FuelCell® and FlowCellTM. Basic modeling functions are also included.

Scribner Associates high-performance Fuel Cell Test Systems are designed to meet all of your research and development needs. Low resistance electronic loads, coupled with the FuelCell software package, allow precise computer control and monitoring of all operation parameters.
