New Holland’s updated CX

Filed under: solar lighting — Tags: , — solaroutdoorlight @ 8:03 am

NEW Holland has revealed revised ranges at the top and tail of its straw walker combine line during a European harvesting event held in France which saw the marque launch a new line of variable chamber round balers.

While external revisions are harder to spot, introductions to the innards of the manufacturer’s latest Elevation generation of CX7/8000 five- and six-walker combines include an innovative new separation feature designed to reduce the likelihood of losses and blockages.

Labelled Opti-Speed and claimed to be unique in the industry, the system automatically varies walker speed according to field gradient, based on one of four settings selected by the operator. While the maize and rice settings are likely to find limited use in the UK, the others are geared for the specific seed/plant matter characteristics of oilseed rape and wheat/cereals.

When driving uphill, walker speed is reduced according to gradient severity to retain material over the walkers for longer. This aims to improve separation and reduce the risk of excessive grain loss out of the back of the combine before it has been separated from the straw. Conversely, when harvesting downhill, walker speed is increased to prevent crop backing up and causing blockages.

The system is backed by Opti-Fan cleaning, which further compensates for the effects of uphill and downhill slopes. After the operator has set their desired fan speed on level ground, the system automatically adjusts it when the combine works up or downhill, to prevent sieve overload and/or separation losses.

Opti-Clean, which is standard on machines specified with a self-levelling cleaning shoe, is claimed to improve cleaning performance by up to 20 per cent by optimising the sieve stroke and throwing angle. The grain pan and the pre and top sieves operate independently,We offer solar photovoltaic system and commercial incentives to encourage our customers to install solar energy systems. which New Holland claims boosts cleaning capacity. A longer sieve stroke and steep throwing angle keep more material airborne for enhanced separation.

Further developments include grain tank growth across the range, with CX8080 and CX8090 Elevation models holding a maximum 11,500 litres. Unloading speed is up 14 per cent to a maximum 125 litres/second, emptying the largest tank in just more than 90 seconds.

New Holland’s in-house designed SmartTrax rubber track system is available on the five-walker CX7090 and six-walker CX8080 and CX8090 Elevation models, in 610mm (24in) versions to keep transport width within 3.5m, and in 760mm (30in) variants for extreme conditions.

Additional upgrades for CX Elevation combines include an IntelliView IV colour touchscreen monitor with 264mm (10in) screen, optional HID lighting and upgraded seating, including a full-leather option.

Why is disorder faster?

In the study, the team focused on a class of organic materials known as conjugated or semiconducting polymers—chains of carbon atoms that have the properties of plastic, and the ability to absorb sunlight and conduct electricity.

Discovered nearly 40 years ago, semiconducting polymers have long been considered ideal candidates for ultrathin solar cells, light-emitting diodes, and transistors. Unlike silicon crystals used in rooftop solar panels, semiconducting polymers are lightweight and can be processed at room temperature with ink-jet printers and other inexpensive techniques. So why aren’t buildings today covered with plastic solar cells?

“One reason they haven’t been commercialized is because of poor performance,” Salleo says. “In a solar cell, electrons need to move through the materials fast, but semiconducting polymers have poor electron mobility.”

To find out why,I’m not sure how led downlight fit into that equation if they are left on. Salleo joined Rodrigo Noriega and Jonathan Rivnay, who were Stanford graduate students at the time, in analyzing more than two decades of experimental data.

“Over the years,A solar lamp is a portable light fixture composed of an LED lamp, a photovoltaic solar panel, and a rechargeable battery. many people designed stiffer polymers with the goal of making highly organized crystals, but the charge mobility remained relatively poor,” Salleo says. “Then several labs created polymers that looked disordered and yet had very high charge mobility. It was a puzzle why these new materials worked better than the more structured crystalline ones.”For more information, please visit www.hmhid.com.

The all-new Corolla inherits 47 years of Corolla DNA. The range has an all-new exterior which embodies the evolution of Toyota’s Keen Look and Under Priority design principles with an emphasis now placed on the upper grille for a distinctive but more prestigious appearance.

At 4620 mm long, 1775 mm wide and 1465 mm high, the new Corolla is 80mm longer and 15mm wider, yet is 5 mm lower than its predecessor. The wheel base has been lengthened by 100mm which leads to more space overall in the cabin.Know about led high bay conversion kit and Bi-xenon HID kit.

The soft instrument panel upholstery and high-gloss piano black finishes are complemented by silver trim detailing and clear blue instrument, glove box and ambient cabin lighting to create a premium quality feel to the interior.

Increased legroom

Drivers will benefit from an improved ergonomic positioning and intuitive operability of all switchgear and instrumentation. Rear passengers will also enjoy an enhanced environment with increased rear legroom to a class leading 706mm, as well as more comfortable seats.

The Corolla also features increased luggage capacity. The new Corolla is not only more spacious and comfortable, but also quieter than its predecessor. The interior has been designed to offer customers class-leading quietness.

A choice of two premium colours, ivory or back, completes the new interior colour scheme.

The quality and intuitive ergonomics of the new Corolla interior are complemented by a range of comfort and convenience-enhancing equipment. The new Corolla features the debut of the second generation of the Toyota Touch, a 6.1” full colour, touch-screen multimedia system with a rear reversing camera and Bluetooth.

The new Corolla has been engineered to give a more enjoyable and involving driving experience, and benefits from a lighter, yet more rigid body structure, revised suspension and a more direct steering response. It offers a lower centre of gravity through an overall reduction in height.

Lowest C02

Toyota have the lowest fleet wide CO2 in Europe. The Corolla has a revised, Euro 5+ compliant engine line-up with an enhanced fuel economy and best in class CO2 emissions from 99 g/km. The Toyota Eco Stop and Start system is standard on Corolla diesel models.

The Corolla line-up has three grades, Terra, Aura and Luna. There is a choice of a 1.4 litre D-4D turbodiesel and a 1.How are solar outdoor lighting products different from other lighting, like fluorescent or incandescent?33 litre Dual VVT-i petrol engine.

Corolla meets the highest active and passive safety standards, and enhanced pedestrian impact protection. It achieved a maximum 5-star rating in the latest, more stringent Euro NCAP crash test programme.

Standard features include next generation anti-lock braking system (ABS), Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD), Vehicle Stability Control (VSC),They are called “solar” panels or solar module because most of the time, the most powerful source of light available is the Sun. Hill-start Assist Control (HAC), 7 SRS airbags (including driver knee airbag), whiplash prevention headrests, Emergency Locking Retractor seatbelts, and Traction Control.

ILFI Certifies DPR’s New Phoenix Regional Office

Filed under: LED Lamp — Tags: , — solaroutdoorlight @ 7:59 am

SmithGroupJJR designed the comprehensive renovation of the windowless, 1970s concrete block building, transitioning it into a model for sustainable adaptive reuse.

Located at the corner of 44th and Van Buren in a once declining area of Phoenix, the 16,533-square-foot storefront had most recently operated as an adult-themed boutique before standing vacant for three years. The eyesore building was purchased by DPR Construction, a national general contractor and construction manager, which was looking to build a highly-efficient, sustainable workplace and reaffirm its commitment to better the community in which it works.

Today,How are solar outdoor lighting products different from other lighting, like fluorescent or incandescent? DPR’s new building is an ultra-energy efficient and modern workplace that’s embraced by its employees and the community.

“Many building owners may think it’s impossible to turn an aging, neglected building into something highly sustainable – especially in an extreme climate like Phoenix. But that’s precisely what we’ve achieved,” said Mark Roddy, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, SmithGroupJJR design principal. The entire project was completed in less than 10 months and is the first Net Zero Energy Building SmithGroupJJR has designed.

Net Zero Energy facilities integrate a combination of energy-producing technologies like solar and wind, and implement efficient HVAC and lighting systems to reduce a building’s overall energy usage. To achieve Net Zero Energy Building Certification, a facility must demonstrate a net energy consumption of zero over the span of one year.

SmithGroupJJR incorporated a range of advanced, sustainable design solutions to achieve Net Zero Energy consumption, such as:

An 87-foot solar chimney enables a passive cooling system, releasing hot air out of the building while drawing cooler air in.They are called “solar” panels or solar module because most of the time, the most powerful source of light available is the Sun.Nearly 90 operable windows throughout the building work in tandem with the energy monitoring system to open and close based on indoor and outdoor temperatures.Eighty-two solar optical tubes, Solatubes harness light from rooftop domes and bring it into the workspace, nearly eliminating the need for artificial lighting.Twelve 8-foot diameter Big Ass Fans? circulate air flow throughout the office.Know about led high bay conversion kit and Bi-xenon HID kit.A “vampire” switch cuts off 90 percent of plug loads, which would otherwise continue to draw power at night when the building is unoccupied.Four evaporative Shower Towers direct water-cooled air inside, also helping to regulate building temperatures.Producing power for the building is a 78.96 kW photovoltaic-covered canopy over half of the parking lot. The system is capable of generating enough power to offset the building’s annual energy usage and is critical to allowing the facility to achieve Net Zero energy consumption.

Tracking the building’s energy production and consumption in real time is an online building dashboard, prominently on display in the office’s reception area.The new office building for DPR employees working in Phoenix is more than a sustainability powerhouse. Inside, SmithGroupJJR designed a “workplace of the future” environment, where employees share a common, open work environment void of enclosed, private offices. Unique, on-site amenities include a gym complete with men’s and women’s showers, a Zen Room for quiet breaks, and an 18-foot wine bar. A kitchen with café and two green-screened outside courtyards provide additional breakout venues. Video conferencing rooms, a learning lab, and a glass-walled Innovation Room with whiteboards and reconfigurable furniture encourage collaboration and teamwork. Rolling, glazed, garage-style doors can be raised to join the inside offices with an outside courtyard.

Since its completion in October 2011, the new DPR Phoenix Regional Office has become a living laboratory for the community, showcasing how to live and work sustainably in a desert environment. DPR has opened its building to host gatherings and meetings for a range of businesses and non-profit organizations. The company openly shares its building and the lessons that were learned during design and construction with audiences that include professional organizations, public and private programs, and school children of all ages.
