Now on RED RC two:

RED RC



Having brought you photos of the new AMBrc transponder a month ago, the Dutch company have released the complete information on the new RC4 Hybrid Transponder and new communication protocol under the MyLaps name. Because the new MyLaps RC4 Timing System will not be available at all clubs and tracks at once, the MyLaps RC4 Hybrid Transponder has been released to make life easier for everyone. It works on the new MyLaps RC4 Timing System, so you are well prepared but is also 100% backwards compatible, working on all current Mylaps RC2 and RC3 Timing Systems.


RC4 Transponder features:
- Half the size and half the weight of the RC2 Transponder
- Comes with a separate holder, so you can easily switch transponder between cars and boats
- Better quality cable (PTFE) that is racing fuel resistant
- Low voltage operability: 2.8-16 Volt compatible
- 1-4 cell LiPo compatible
- It will be your parent transponder and it comes with Car ID 0 (zero), the default Car ID. You can add child transponders, with Car ID 1, 2, 3, etc. (available soon)
- Any MYLAPS RC4 transponder can always be replaced by a new one that inherits the same Transponder ID and Car ID
- CE approved

Transponder benefits when used in combination with the new Mylaps RC4 Timing System:
- More data measured (temperature, voltage, Car ID, as listed in the communication protocol)
- Double hit rates detection, resulting in even more accurate results

The MyLaps RC4 platform is based upon an entirely new communication protocol for sending over data from your transponder to the timing system installed at the track. The current MyLaps RC3 (previously AMBrc) protocol only allows a transponder to send over your unique transponder ID. With the new RC4 protocol, a transponder is able to send over much more:

- Temperature: the ambient temperature of the transponder
- Voltage: the supply voltage of the transponder
- Car ID: the Car ID allows you to use multiple transponders that share the same unique Transponder ID, but are tagged with different Car IDs. More information will follow soon.
- We will continue to add more relevant data, which you can use for analysis and to improve your performance

Min is in the house two and will be tested sunday

I Know why the shipping is so expensive. I Tried to Stamp it down, and the box could hold my whole weight....

Best Regards

Robert

With this statement...."We will continue to add more relevant data, which you can use for analysis and to improve your performance".....it kinda sounds like they intend to add some kind of telemetry in the future. This will probably be a non-hybrid version that would work only with the V4 or higher decoders.

Maybe a good time to upgrade the decoder.....476 EUR = 706 USD!

I've been speaking with MyLaps, they've told me that the shipping costs are not good yet. There is a small bug in it.

There will be a working shipping part on the Web shop within a few day's (week), where you can choose the way of shipping.

Just be patience for a moment ;-)

Best Regards

Robert

They should be able to offer better postage rates.
If VRC can sell you a VRC adaptor for $10 including postage then ???
VRC has this promotion for December only if you recieve email from them with a discount code. If VRC who are a smaller business than AMB can do it why cant AMB do a reduced postage as a introductory offer ?

Mylaps informed me that they are looking at other shipping possibilities.
So everyone needs to have a little patience.

The first batch of transponders will be send out within two weeks.

So....will they send a batch to MyLaps in Georgia USA? Would make sense to ship US sales from there.

Well, if someone really wants the new transponder I can inform if they are still in stock if so I buy them and reship them to the US.
Will be $115 a piece according to google currency.

You can also send your old transponder or amb clone transponder and with some extra money you get the new one.

I have my new AMB transponder and used it in the race.
The symbol blinks and the holder has a same shaped hole so you see the light true is.
