ReliOn Fuel Cells Completes UL Certification

April 02, 2007 by Jeff Shepard

ReliOn announced it has received Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. (UL) certification for its T-1000® and T-2000™ fuel cell solutions. The certification was completed under ANSI/CSA FC 1-2004, Stationary Fuel Cell Power Systems – the most current and comprehensive standard for certification of stationary fuel cell systems.

UL is an independent, not-for-profit product safety testing and certification organization. They have tested products for public safety for more than 110 years and have a reputation as a leader in product safety testing and certification within the United States. ReliOn’s fuel cells are the first to receive UL certification under ANSI/CSA FC 1-2004.

"UL certification removes some of the barriers to fuel cell deployment which are encountered as local codes and standards are applied in specific regions. Making it easier for our communications customers who are in the process of rolling out fuel cell technology is important to ReliOn," remarked Joe Blanchard, ReliOn’s Vice President, Product Line Management.

ReliOn claims that its hydrogen fuel cell products provide highly reliable, low maintenance backup power for customer sites needing between 600W and 12kW of power. With this certification, ReliOn has completed third-party safety and performance testing and certification for the T-1000® and T-2000™ fuel cells. Other completed testing and certification organizations include CSA, CE, NEBS Level 3 and FCC.
