Indroducing World's First Twin Prop Electric Outboard

eCycle Marine, Inc. Introduces World's First Twin Prop Electric Outboard

Temple, Pa.)—eCycle Marine, Inc., exclusive distributor of eCycle, Inc. marine products, introduces world's first twin prop electric outboard motor. eCycle Marine Electric Outboard provides boating advantages and promotes environmentally responsible boating by producing zero emissions and exceeding all EPA standards for marine outboard motors.


"The most innovative electric outboard in the world,"said Michael V. Sharer, president of eCycle Marine, Inc., "is an attractive, 60-pound package, with availability of different transom heights to accommodate a broad range of vessels. It's affordable, powerful, efficient, maintenance-free, environmentally friendly, and versatile."

The twin props or contra rotating propellers (CRP) were originally developed in England about 150 years ago. CRP is employed in submarines, torpedoes, and various outboard propulsion systems. eCycle is applying this technology to consumer marine products like the electric outboard motor for significant boost in thrust and efficiency.

The first model in a line of electric marine propulsion systems by eCycle, Inc., has a conventional rating of 6HP, but provides the thrust equivalent of a 9.9 HP gasoline outboard.

Overview

 Brushless motor allows low speeds for trolling; instant throttle response for acceleration
 High efficiency
 Lightweight
 Low maintenance
 Simple push button power
 Environmentally clean
 No fuel
 Extremely quiet
 Conforms to CARB 2006 emission standards
 Competitively priced at $3,995 retail


Two outboard versions are available. The 6HP (9.9 HP gas thrust equivalent) being sold presently, and a 10HP (15 HP gas thrust equivalent) which will be available later this year. Inboard propulsion systems in the 6 - 40 HP ranges for larger vessels are available.
Unlike fossil fuel counterparts, eCycle's line of electric boat propulsion does not pollute waterways with emissions and fuel spillage that can damage the environmental balance.

WS510 Secondary Standard

WS510 Secondary Standard

In the monitoring of large photovoltaic (Utility Scale), in assessing potential sites (Solar-assessment), or in up and coming electricity cost saving initiatives projects (Commercial & Industrial), the WS510 now provides the market a secondary standard pyranometer, ultrasonic wind speed, ultrasonic wind direction, temperature, pressure and humidity all in a single unit.. This sensor meets the high demands of the world meteorological organization (WMO) through the active valving at air temperature measurement and the inertia- and maintenance-free measurement of wind speed and wind direction on the ultrasonic principle. Equipped with a Kipp & Zonen pyranometer of the secondary standards, the WS510-UMB Compact weather sensor from Lufft unites the precision of a variety of meteorological individual sensors in a single all-in-one device, for the first time.
