Australian Energy Research Laboratories Pty Ltd 9 Tom Scanlon Close, Kellyville NSW 2155 AUSTRALIA Ph: +61 2 8883 5351 email@example.com ATTENTION WORLD SOLAR CHALLENGE RACE TEAMS As many of our loyal customers will know, Australian Energy Research Laboratories (AERL) has supplied in excess of 1000 specialised solar racing car MAXIMIZERSTM since 1987 to more than 300 different teams worldwide, including over 60 of the world’s leading universities. In fact, over 75% of teams used AERL MAXIMIZERSTM in both the Australian World Solar Challenges and the US Solar Car Races between 1993 and 2007. Due to the sad passing in June last year of Stuart Watkinson, the principal of AERL and inventor the AERL MAXIMIZERTM, AERL was temporarily unable to supply solar racing car teams. AERL can now, however, supply again and for teams who act quickly, in time for the World Solar Challenge 18th - 25th October 2009. We are pleased to inform you that AERL can immediately take orders for the new AERL 600W BOOST RACE-TRIM MINI-MAXIMIZERTM. The new 600W BOOST, replaces the 400W Buck/Boost unit that AERL has been manufacturing for the past 10 years. It is a new high current, high efficiency, boost-only Race-Trim Mini MaximizerTM that can be used with all solar cell types, but was specifically designed to handle the 5.5A Sunpower Cells – which so many teams now use. This new 600W BOOST unit is much more powerful and efficient, so that 3 units will be adequate for the whole car. Specifications for the AERL Race-Trim Mini-MaximizerTM 600W BOOST unit: Feature Specification Topology Common negative boost converter Typical throughput power 98%+ (over 100W-600W) efficiency Unit weight 720 grams (without meter module) Nominal PV Power range 0-600W (input current rating must be adhered to) PV Vo/c Input voltage range 40-135 Vo/c (maximum PV Vo/c must be less than nominal battery bank voltage) PV Input current range 0-6A (8A transient rating) Nominal Output Battery 72, 96, 120, 144, 168V Voltage Ranges (selectable) Remote LCD Digital Meter Meters PV Input Current and PV Volts only (additional $160 AUD) Option available Price $890 AUD Shipping $50 AUD for the first unit and $25 AUD per subsequent units AERL Background After the AERL success in the 1990 Australian World Solar Car Challenge, winning the lead- acid battery category and placing 6th outright in a field of 36, as well as supplying 8 of the first 11 vehicles with MAXIMIZERSTM, AERL received many requests to design a customized MAXIMIZERTM especially for solar racing car applications. Thanks to AERL’s custom control modules, developed over the last 22 years and now used in 100% of our products, our RACE-TRIM MINI-MAXIMIZERTM products are an exceptionally compact and lightweight range of PV power trackers with efficiencies of around 99%.
