lexSolar - H2

College/Secondary - leXsolar-H2 Ready-to-go 2.0

leXsolar-H2 Ready-to-go offers the entire spectrum of current fuel cell technology for education. The product was completely revised and now contains the world's first SOFC-Fuel cell for educational purposes.

The solar module, electrolyzer, and fuel cell allows the assembling and examination of a solar-hydrogen cycle. Working principles, efficiency and characteristics curves of electrolyzer and fuel cell are just some of the topics covered.

Beside the PEM-Fuel cell and the SOFC-Fuel cell, it also contains an Ethanol-Fuel cell in order to compare the different technologies. H2 Charger and H2 Storage allow the easy generation and storage of hydrogen. Following the traditions of the Ready-to-go series all additional equipment is already included in the robust aluminum case.

leXsolar - BioFuel

College/Secondary - leXsolar-BioFuel Ready-to-go

The entire process of producing biofuel is demonstrated with leXsolar-Biofuel Ready-to-go as a student experiment. The case contains all necessary components and can be used anywhere.

The first step is resource selection and fermentation. The resulting mash is then distilled with the custom-built leXsolar-Condenser, and the ethanol obtained will be characterized.

Lastly, the bio fuel collected needs to be converted into usable energy – for example into electricity with the provided Ethanol-Fuel cell. leXsolar-BioFuel Ready-to-go does not only cover bio ethanol production but also the generation of biodiesel through transesterification of fats.

Middle School - leXsolar-BioFuel Large

The entire process of producing biofuels can be demonstrated with leXsolar-BioFuel Large. It starts with the biological step of alcoholic fermentation. Afterwards the produced mash will be distilled with the help of the leXsolar-condenser, which was developed just for this experiment. The last step demonstrates the conversion of the produced biofuel into usable energy, such as electrical energy, using the provided Ethanol-fuel cell.

leXsolar - Thermal Energy

College/Secondary - leXsolar-ThermalEnergy Ready-to-go

This experimentation system allows for the application of different technologies of solar thermal energy transformation in class. The product does not only contain various solar collector systems, which can be used with or without pumps, but also the CSP-technology (Concentrated Solar Power) and a Peltier element for the direct generation of electricity. Another main feature are the experiments regarding the basics of thermodynamics, like absorption of heat radiation and the convective flow of heat, that provide a comprehensive understanding of the applied physical effects.

Like the other products of the Ready-to-go line, the leXsolar-ThermalEnergy Ready-to-go raise enthusiasm thanks to its flexible and location-independent use, without the need of any further equipment.

leXsolar - Emobility

Post Secondary - leXsolar-Emobility Professional

For storing electrical energy many different battery technologies are already on the market. But what application needs which battery type, what capacity does the battery need to have and what loading performance is the best to guarantee a long durability? Due to the problem of storing renewable energy, these are questions which need to be worked on in technical training. With leXsolar-EStore Professional, the characteristics of different battery types can be analyzed. 

Secondary - leXsolar-Emobility Ready-to-go

This system teaches the physical and technical foundations and applications of different battery technologies. Eight different battery types like lithium-polymer battery, capacitor or fuel cell allow for the study of characteristics like lifespan and charging methods. Qualitative and quantitative experiments are used to explore the properties of various battery types. The electric car can be run with all included storage types.
