New Remote Control System makes mobile energy supply for surveillance applications even more conveni

Thanks to an innovative Remote Control System (RCS) operators of mobile and remote surveillance and monitoring systems world wide will now enjoy even more flexibility and ease of operation when powering their systems with the SFC A50 fuel cell. The new fuel cell remote control system, developed and distributed by Tedas Telecom Solutions, NL, enables monitoring and control of the energy supply process. The RCS is controlled from a central control station via GSM network. At the central control station the SFC monitoring software monitors fuel cell operation via an RS 232 interface. The RCS will immediately issue an SMS alert if a value exceeds a set limit. The operator in turn can return SMS commands to the RCS to initiate on-site actions, to remedy critical situations, to change timer settings, to define alarm scenarios, to record log files and more.

“Police observation is a very power hungry application for which our SFC A50 fuel cell is fast becoming the golden standard power source. It offers a high amount of energy while being light weight, reliable, silent, and easy to operate. Now, with the RCS, we have added an efficient remote monitoring and control feature, which will give the police forces even more flexibility and leverage in remote and mobile observation,” says Michael Gruber, Sales Manager of SFC. And Alice Koers, General Manager of Tedas, adds: “The development of this remote control system for us was a logical step in the broadening of our product portfolio for governmental services. We are already supplying video monitoring systems to the Dutch police. We are very happy that this new product has been so well received by our customers.”

The RCS is also available with a GPS control option for mobile applications, which enables identification of the global coordinates of the device’s location, for example in mobile surveillance applications.

The RCS is the latest addition to the growing fuel cell portfolio of SFC Smart Fuel Cell, a market leader in fuel cell technologies for portable off-grid power applications serving the leisure, industrial and military markets. The RCS is available in two versions: as basic function with SMS alert functionality and RS 232 for € 895 (plus VAT), or in an extended package with GPS system for € 995 (plus VAT).
