Team Arrow AD 2015 Solar Challenge wrap up by Darren Pearson

Team Arrow AD 2015 Solar Challenge wrap up by Darren Pearson

Release date: 21 Jan 15

We attended the World Future Energy Summit with the cars yesterday and had a chance to see the exhibition and attend the awards ceremony. Compelling speech from president of Egypt and a lifetime award was given to Al Gore.

Congratulations to University of Michigan Solar Car team with their 3 wheel car as the overall winner! In the end Arrow 1 placed 5th after penalties (for speeding...) So 2nd fastest 4 wheel car, 5th overall and on Day 2 we were able to mix it with the best. The car is currently top 3 in the world performance wise we just need to tune up our strategy and sort out reliability on a few systems. October though will bring a new batch of contenders so we need to step it up a little to stay competitive.

Thanks again to solarracing.org  for great coverage.

Arrow 1 will be starting in 4th position (of 15 cars) - well done Team Arrow! For those of you who don't follow F1 or V8 Super Cars, the Yas Marina Circuit really does have a marina in the middle of it - amazing place.

R325  Luggage Weighing Indicator

R325 Luggage Weighing Indicator

Rinstrum has launched a stainless steel dedicated baggage-weighing indicator, the R325. It allows for easy monitoring of both the total weight summing and the number of bags to ensure preset bag numbers and weight limits are not exceeded. Dedicated key pad functions increase input capabilities and decreases the chance of operator error. Pre-determined bag and total weight limits prevent excess baggage weights being accepted by the operator.

The R325 has built in RS323 and RS485 communications to work with the D323 remote display and a network or printer. The R325 indicator and D323 remote display are slim line stainless steel panel mounting and feature an LCD with LED backlighting.
