The Automatic Test Fixture Unit is used to characterise all internal fuel cell components in a repeatable manner; namely, flowfields, gas diffusion layers, membrane electrode assemblies, catalyst coated membranes. With the use of pneumatic actuator, this unit enables adjustable pressure impact on the active part of the fuel cell irrespective of overall thickness of the internal components and flat sealing in a tool-free and quick fashion.
