The Horizon H-60 PEM Fuel Cell is a 60 Watt, air fed / air cooled, self-humidified hydrogen fuel cell suitable for many small projects and uses.  Because this fuel cell is air cooled, there is no need for large, complicated, and expensive water cooling systems.

Horizon H-Series PEM fuel cells are semi-integrated, efficient, reliable systems that minimize the use of peripherals.  As such, they are the most compact and lightweight fuel cells around the world.

Projects/Applications that will benefit from the use of this product include: recharging for cell phone, power for a small RC car or boat, or just an economical way to begin experimenting with hydrogen fuel cells and their use and operation.

List of components in the package:
  • 1 x 60W fuel cell stack (includes supply valve, purge valve, blower)
  • 1 x controller (includes short circuit unit)
  • 1 x silicon tube (OD 4 x ID 2mm), 50cm long
  • 1 x silicon tube (OD 6 x ID 3mm), 50cm long
  • 1 x filter
  • 3 x screw M6
  • 3 x nut M6
  • 6 x washer
  • 2 x outlet gas fitting (M5-4)
  • 2 x inlet gas fitting (M5-6)
  • 1 x LCD Display


The controller requires an external power supply of 13 volts and of up to 5 amperes. During the operation of the stack, the controller would not be consuming 5 amperes continuously.

Polarization Curves

Polarization curves (also known as fuel cell performance curves or IV curves or IE curves) are given both in the user manual and the brochure (see the links for PDF files below).
