While I have not been putting many posts on the website recently, I have been very busy with pedal powered projects! In 2019 I worked on 12 large pedal powered projects (not including the hire of pedal powered equipment for events). This included supplying 31 pedal generator units and 7 pedal powered Scalextric systems. I’ve been trying to standardise a lot of kit I supply, but every project is different! I thought I would review some of these projects.[Read more…]
We helped the staff at DHL Daventry get a feel for the power and energy that different equipment uses. We set up two systems: One showed energy on our 2m high LED bar graph displays, the other directly powered different loads.
We can supply many different types of pedal generators, including portable systems.
We have three main types of generator:
- Roller Wheel Generator
- Hub Generator
- Recumbent Generator
Want to get up and running with your pedal powered activity fast?
Here are some full-packages we can provide.
A pedal powered Scalextric is a great activity for your event. Our system is a 2-bike two lane figure-8 Scalextric track.
Make your pedal power system even more interactive and interesting with our range of displays.
These help visually explain concepts of power and energy which increases the educational impact of pedal power.
We can supply these to work with your pedal power system.
Here is our two-bike pedal power challenge. This comprises of two large LED bar graphs to show either power or energy.
The challenge can be either a timed challenge, where the winner is the person who generates the most energy or the maximum power, or it can be a race to generate a certain amount of energy.
This can be linked in to energy efficiency advice and gives the users an interactive way of feeling how much energy different devices use.
We were asked to provide a pedal power challenge for a sports promotion company.
We provided a two bike energy challenge with two large LED bar graphs. The energy from the cyclist is measured and displayed on the bar graph. The challenge is for 30 seconds and there is a large LED timer which counts down. The person who has generated the most energy in that time is the winner.
