RS Xplorer - A power solution for remote sensing deployments

Based on our extensive field service experience we are pleased to be able to offer the RS Xplorer power trailer for remote sensing.

The RS Xplorer is a flexible power delivery solution based on the EFOY 2400 methanol fuel cell, offering a platform to add additional power sources as required to meet the demands of the instrument in the field.

The default specification adds 400Wp PV to the 110W EFOY solution to provide ample power to supply instruments such as the Natural Power ZephIR 300 and Leosphere V2 systems.

Mounted onto a custom built rugged off-road trailer, the RS Xplorer provides a modular extendable, flexible platform for the support of instrumentation in the field.

The system is also provided with a range of communication packages to suit the location and data requirements, giving the user full access to the system performance and status. Remote back up data logging also comes as standard, as well as GEO-Fencing security features giving piece of mind as to the whereabouts and security of the equipment.

The RS Xplorer specifications are:


- 100W Methanol Fuel Cell and 400Wp hybrid

- 300Ah battery bank @ 24V DC

- 0.9L/ kWh consumption rate

- 112L of methanol provided with system
