May 08, 2002 by Jeff Shepard

Teledyne Technologies Inc. (Los Angeles, CA) announced that its subsidiary, Teledyne Energy Systems Inc., was awarded a multi-year contract to supply 32 MEDUSA RD test stations to a leading PEM fuel cell component manufacturer. The systems will expand the customer's test capabilities and be used in the development of components used in the manufacture of PEM fuel cells.

The MEDUSA RD system is a next-generation fuel cell test station that provides automatic testing of fuel cells in power ranges up to 1,000W. The test station provides water, fuel and thermal management, as well as software and an electronic load designed specifically for fuel cell testing. The system control and safety features permit unattended 24/7 operation to allow customers to concentrate more on their fuel cell research and development rather than on their test hardware.

"We are pleased that leading researchers continue to choose the Teledyne Energy Systems fuel cell test systems for their research, development and qualification activities," said Teledyne Technologies Chairman, President and CEO Robert Mehrabian. "The award of this contract is a result of our commitment to deliver exceptional quality and service based on more than 30 years of hydrogen and fuel cell experience."
