6116 Fuel Cell Power Units, Components,
Note-This class includes items that are
designed to produce an electromotive
force directly from an oxidation-reduction
type of chemical reaction. A complete
power unit must include tanks, pumps,
and associated control equipment, and
requires a continuous, uninterrupted sup-
ply of liquid or gaseous fuel and oxidizers.
Includes Complete Functioning Fuel Cell
Power Units; Fuel Cells; Fuel Cell Assem-
blies or Modules; Fuel Cell Reactant
Chambers; Fuel Feed Mechanisms; Elec-
trolyte Heaters; Heat Exchangers; and
other internal components peculiar to,
and used exclusively on or with, Fuel Cell
Power Units classified in this class.
Excludes Primary Batteries (FSC 6135);
Secondary Batteries (FSC 6140); Gen-
erators and Generating Sets (FSC 6115);
and items for which more suitable classes
are specifically prescribed by the indexes
and structure of the FSC.

with a kilovolt-ampere rating above 1 kva.
Excludes Potential and Current Trans-
6125 Converters, Electrical, Rotating
Note-This class includes devices em-
ploying mechanical rotation for changing
electrical energy from one form to an-
other (i.e., AC to AC, DC to DC, AC to DC,

are electrical generators and generator
sets (FSC 6115).
Includes Complete Battery Charging
Sets; Phase Converters; Rotating Equip-
ment; Synchronous Converters.
Excludes Nonrotating Equipment.
6130 Converters, Electrical, Nonrotating
Note This class includes devices em-
ploying a means other than mechanical
rotation for changing electrical energy
from one form to another (i.e., AC to AC,
DC to DC, AC to DC, and DC to AC).
