Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19729429C1] An electrolysis device (1) has a number of membrane electrolytic cells (2) having each a membrane (4) provided on both sides with a contact layer. This device should be compact, suitable for relatively high hydrogen production rates and therefore particularly flexible to use. According to the invention, a contact plate (5) is arranged on each contact layer and each contact plate (5) has a channel system (14) for the transport of water and/or gas on its surface oriented towards the associated contact layer.
