The Benefits Of Motorcycle Windshields

18

When youre out on the road do you have to deal with flying objects hitting you in the chest, bugs hitting your face, or do you have trouble steering because of high wind force? If you do, then you might want to think about purchasing a motorcycle windshield for your bike.

One of the biggest benefits of motorcycle windshields is blocking gusty winds that can often times make a trip more uncomfortable than it should be. Winds can be distracting to riders which can take away from the attention that they should have on their driving skills.

Another huge benefit of motorcycle windshields is the fact that they can block flying dirt and debris and prevent flying items from hitting the rider. Its very common to see pebbles or rocks bouncing around on the road because of gravelly road shoulders, and when rocks get rolling down the road there is the chance that they can bounce up and hit motorcycle riders. Windshields help deflect them so they do not hit riders while driving.

Also, motorcycle windshields can block bone chilling winds that are often experienced in the cooler riding seasons. If you want to experience the most comfortable ride when it comes to temperature, then you can install one that is tall enough so it can block all of the wind that would normally hit you and penetrate your clothing.

When a motorcycle does not have a windshield installed, then the rider will feel the force of the blowing winds directly on him when he is riding down the road. The winds will attempt to push him back on the motorcycle, so the rider will have to use extra strength and energy to hold onto the handlebars and not be blown off. Motorcycle windshields can block the wind and keep the pressure off of the rider, which will make it easier to handle the bike.

Essential learning about induction motors – basics of AC drives and VFD

PID controller – a PID is the most commonly used feedback controller. A PID controller calculates an “error” value as the difference between a measured process variable and a desired set point. The Pid controller attempts to minimize the error by adjusting the process control inputs. The PID controller calculation involves three separate constant parameters, and is accordingly sometimes called three-term control: the proportional, the integral and derivative values, denoted P, I, and D. .

Auto tune controller – Auto tune controller provide economical control for a wide variety of processes, including heating, cooling, and heat/cool. When auto tune controller is used with the proper transmitters, these devices can also control pressure, flow, humidity, motion, or pH. The front panel is NEMA 2, 3R, and 12 rated for waterproof protection and are corrosion resistant. The sophisticated design of auto tuner controller incorporates the latest microprocessor and surface mount technology, compressing an unprecedented number of standard features into a compact 1/16 DIN package. The user can program control functions from the front panel; input types are DIP switch selectable. Multiple tuning modes allow the user to select from 3 standard tuning presets, manual tuning, or auto tuning.

Electronic motor drives into two categories: AC and DC. A motor drive controls the speed, torque, direction and resulting horsepower of a motor. A DC drive typically controls a shunt wound DC motor, which has separate armature and field circuits. AC drives control AC induction motors, and-like their DC counterparts-control speed, torque, and horsepower. A VFD controls the speed, torque and direction of an AC Induction motor. If you are not using VFD you are wasting energy and throwing money out the window. An AC drive may be considered by them as the variable frequency inverter and motor combination. It may even include the motor’s pulley.People in the electrical field and electrical suppliers usually refer to a variable frequency inverter unit alone, or an SCR power module alone (when discussing DC drives) as the “drive” and the motor as the “motor”. Manufacturers of VFD used to refer to the drive as an “adjustable speed AC drive”. To make matters worse when a motor is included in the package it may be referred to as an “adjustable speed AC drive system”.

A VFD is an adjustable speed drive. Adjustable speed drives include all types; mechanical and electrical. About AC drives, the main power components of an AC drive have to be able to supply the required level of current and voltage in a form the motor can use. The controls have to be able to provide the user with necessary adjustments such as minimum and maximum speed settings, so that the drive can be adapted to the user’s process.

Auto Insurance Claims – An Auto Insurance Claims Walkthrough

Getting in a car accident can be a very upsetting experience to say the least, and dealing with the aftermath can be equally upsetting. At least the car accident is over in seconds. Auto insurance claims can take weeks to be finalized. Making it through the process will be much easier if you have an idea of how to file an auto insurance claim.

After the accident the first thing you should do is to make sure no one is injured. The next thing to do is to call the police. Even if the accident is minor the police should be called. They will be an impartial witness to the accident and make sure that all of the paperwork is handled correctly.

The next step is to exchange information .This means you should get, and give, all drivers license information, insurance information, and the license plate number. It is also very important to get the telephone number of the other driver. This is also a good time to look for any witnesses to the accident. If there are witnesses ask them if they are willing to testify as to what they saw. If you are at fault, and you know it, then let the other party seek witness corroboration.

After exchanging auto insurance information and getting witness contact information the next thing to do is to call your own car insurance company. The person you speak with will walk you through the exact process for filing a claim.

This is a good time to ask your car insurance representative what to say if the other person’s insurance company calls you. They may tell you not to say anything except to have them contact your auto insurance representative. Do not deviate from this if it is what they advise regardless of what the other person’s insurance company says you have to do.

After this the adjuster will come to assess the damage to your vehicle. The insurance company will write you a check for this amount, minus your deductible, and you can have your car repaired.

If there is any dispute about the costs of the repair you should call your car insurance company and file a dispute. If this proves to be ineffective then call your state’s Division of Insurance and lodge a complaint which will be investigated. Hopefully any auto insurance claims you have to file will go through smoothly and you can disregard this advice, but if not now you know what to do.

Listening For The Problem Automotive Technician Diagnostics

15

Most car owners have a special relationship with their car in a similar way that pet owners have a special relationship with their pets. What I mean by this is that car owners usually know every single last one of their car’s performance, irregularities, quirks, and tendencies. While most brand new cars almost always start out running in a uniform way to other new cars of the same make and model, after a while, your car begins to development its own personality. This is probably caused by the way you drive, which reinforces the idea that there is a special relationship between a driver and his or her car.

Assuming one knows what to expect from their car, whenever something new or out of the ordinary happens, the driver knows something might be wrong. One of the surest telltale signs that something is wrong with your car is when you hear a noise that you are not familiar with. Cars make all sorts of noises, but a driver should be able to distinguish normal noises from new ones. Automotive technicians do not have the intimate knowledge of your car that you have, so when you come to them describing a new noise, it is up to their expertise to interpret it to locate the real problem.

Learning how to listen to customers describing problems with their cars, especially in terms of new noises, is a part of automotive technician training. The mechanic can’t expect the customer to be experts and use real, technical descriptions of the problems. Instead, there are several general noise descriptions that the mechanic should be ready to identify.

– Rattling, Clattering, and Banging: Mostly engine problems due to engine oil deficiencies or engine fuel problems.
– Loud Shots: If this occurs when the car starts, it is probably the engine backfiring due to problems with the ignition.
– Screeching, Wheezing: These sounds could be due to loose or damaged belts in the engine, like the drive belt or the fan belt.
– Whistling, Hissing: Likely the engine is overheating, check the cooling and exhaust systems.
– Popping, Sputtering: This could be from a dirty air filter that needs to be cleaned or replaced.
– Ticking, Rapid Clicking: There is probably a problem with the fuel transfer from the fuel pump to the carburetor and both should be checked.

Some noises indicate more serious problems than others, while other noises are common developments that happen to a car over time. Automotive training schools have many ways to train the mechanic to diagnose problems, using a combination of simulated customer descriptions and real workshop engines. In both cases, learning to listen is an efficient way to begin identifying the problem.

So trust your ears when hearing something new coming from your car, and trust the automotive technician to know what you’re talking about. Sound good?

Parts of a Motorcycle Helmet

A lot of people love riding in a motorcycle compared to a car because it feels like flying. Cars maybe luxurious and more comfortable yet it feels like being imprisoned within a machine. But the advantage that it has over motorcycle is in terms of safety. Motorcycle is more prone to accidents because of its size. Because of these wearing a motorcycle helmet has become a mandatory element to be safe. To learn more about helmets, here are the lists of things that we can see if we cut a section of a Full Face helmet:

Outer Shell. Made of either Fiberglass, or a Polycarbonate mixture or specially formulated plastics while expensive models are made Carbon fibers or other very strong light weight materials. It shapes the helmet and provides protection against objects penetrating the helmet.

Safety Liner. Also called “cushion” layer. It is about one inch thick and is made out of expanded Polystyrene or similar synthetic foam material. Safety liner absorbs impact energy in case of a collision.

Inner Liner. Also called comfort liner. It is composed of a moisture absorbing antibacterial fabric and stuffed with soft thin foam to provide comfort. This is the part that is in contact with your skin at all times, so it should breathe well. In some models of helmet, the inner liner is removable so it can be washed.

Chin Strap. This is made out of a very strong fabric and serves as the helmet’s locking device so it does not fly off or falls off the rider’s head especially during impact.

Face Shield. Face shield pivots up and down and has a locking system so the wind cannot slams it open at high speeds. Choose a good quality, optically correct face shield so your vision does not get tired. There are tinted for bright sunny days and clear for all seasons.

According to Van Zyl the new Parts Distribution Warehouse will allow the company to further improve the availability of service and replacement parts on all of its vehicles, while the efficiencies gained from its world class management systems will serve to contain the cost of these parts.

The new Parts Distribution Warehouse will boast state-of-the-art management and workflow systems that will ensure optimal man and machine separation. By utilising these technologies the new facility will become one of the most modern facilities in the global TMC network.

The first phase of the new Parts Distribution Warehouse will open in May 2012 with the first round of daily deliveries to the more than 220 Toyota, Lexus and Hino dealerships in Southern Africa. This phase will feature 39 000 m2 of warehouse space and 3 000 m2 of office space. More than 800 of TSAM’s staff compliment of 7 793 employees will be based here.

In making this a reality we believe that the government, through the actions of the Department of Trade and Industry and the Automotive Production and Development Programme (APDP) has created a stable and predictable environment in which we as manufacturers can make investments such as the one that we are announcing today- says Van Zyl.

Finding the right auto insurance company for you is an important job, and as such, you need to invest some time and energy in locating the company that will offer you the best deal. While finances are obviously an important aspect in your ultimate choice of auto insurance company, there are other factors at play also, such as reliability and quality of service. You will turn to your automobile insurance company in a time of crisis, and so you need to be sure that you have chosen a company that will pull through for you when you need them most.

So who exactly are the best judges of the quality of any given automobile insurance company? Youve got that right ordinary folk just like you. While insurance industry ratings are undoubtedly an important way of gleaning information about any auto insurance carrier, and can provide you with all kinds of technical insights, for real, hands-on evaluations of how helpful a company can be when you really need their assistance, then you need to find out what other customers of the company think.

Most companies, whether they provide auto insurance or any other product or service, are only too keen to share with potential customers the great things that people have said about them a quick glance at any auto insurance companys website will reveal testimonials that support this. These companies are not, however, quite so eager to share their shortcomings with those considering taking them up on one of their insurance packages, so how exactly can you find a more balanced picture of an auto insurance company before you sign on the dotted line?

Take a trip to your state’s department of insurance website. These sites offer useful insights into automobile insurance companies by providing details of consumer complaint ratios. These ratios indicate exactly how many complaints an auto insurance company has received for every 1,000 claims filed. This information provides you with a good insight into the quality of the service offered by any insurance company, by illustrating just how many people just like you were disappointed enough by the service they received to make a formal complaint about it.

You might not be able to speak in person to everybody who has chosen a particular auto insurance company before you, but by availing of the consumer complaint ratio service offered by your states department of insurance website you can find a more balanced view of a prospective insurance company than you are likely to find at their own website. Who better to advise you on car insurance than other car insurance consumers? Because consumers are the real experts on what makes an auto insurance company great, and what makes them one to avoid.
