Measurement of membrane proton conductivity at controlled temperature, pressure, and relative humidity environment, has been a critical component of high efficiency fuel cells.  This fuel cell hardware is capable of working in conjunction with an incorporated BT-115 conductive cell – which is the perfect solution for such research and development.

The conductive cell applies the conventional four-point-probe method to measure the in-plane conductivity of various membranes and/or conductivity performance in various environments. The main advantage in the four electrode conductivity measurement is the ability to distinguish voltage drop between ion creation and ion flow; leading to a more accurate assessment of membrane conductivity and resistance

Conductivity cell may be removed – and hardware can be utilized as fully functioning PEM Hardware
