Applications

Lighting

87% of the people lacking electricity live in rural areas where the extension of the national electricity grid is a technically difficult, very costly and inefficient solution because of remoteness and sparse population density. In those rural zones where electricity is not available, Vulcan Force can supply energy to power ambient lighting. VF product line covers a luminosity range from 320 to 1300lm, enough to light up a space up to 25m². This electricity can also be used to feed stove decorative lighting.

Ventilation

Designed to rapidly improve the circulation of heat from the stove, and therefore reduce hot and cold spots throughout the house, stove fans aim to not only improve comfort but also improve the stove’s efficiency and reach. With Vulcan Force, various 12V DC fans can be powered only with the energy released by fire. VF product line covers an air flow rate range from 150m³/h to 600m³/h.

USB Charging

As mobile phone use has become an important part of the daily life in rural areas, Vulcan Force are now equipped with a USB port for charging mobile phones or power any device that can be charged or powered through USB port. Universal Standard Bus (USB) has become a standard bus and the most used interface for charging mobile phones and portable devices. VF products line can charge various electronic devices simultaneously from 5V/0.5A to 5V/3A.

Fire Load Indicator

A Fire Load Indicator is a device which is installed on a stove to inform the operator if the heating system is exceeding or not the nominal operating point of the stove. To make this possible, a thermal power meter is needed. However, none of the current commercial stoves include such feature. Vulcan Force can provide this information because its inner thermoelectric module also works as a heat flux meter.
