REDARC Electronics Tour and Training

You are invited to step inside one of Australia’s greatest automotive manufacturing success stories with a behind-the-scenes factory tour and expert training in some of Redarc’s highly regarded auto-electrical products.

Redarc has built an enviable reputation for quality and innovation, with some of the happiest customers in the business and a growing collection of prestigious awards.

The training element will cover alternator output types, DC charging, accelerometers, trailer brake control, voltage conversion, battery management, battery monitoring and solar panels.

Redarc staff will use the company’s products, including the BCDC in-vehicle battery charger, the Tow Pro brake controller, DPS voltage converter, Manager 30 battery management device, HMRF2000 battery monitor and more besides.

The training and tour will take place on Saturday July 29 at Redarc Electronics headquarters, 23 Brodie Road North, Lonsdale South Australia 5160.

The event will close at 11am and transport to the RAA Training Centre for lunch and the afternoon sessions will be provided.

Afternoon sessions

At the RAA Training Centre there will be a barbecue lunch and networking opportunity before the afternoon sessions on auxiliary power system installation and R1234yf refrigerant begin.

Power for Profit

VASA President Ian Stangroome will share his expertise in the design and installation of auxiliary power supply systems for the rapidly growing 4×4, motorhome and caravan market.

Free camping is becoming more and more popular, so there is a huge business opportunity in developing your proficiency and reputation for building reliable, long-lasting back-up power supplies that your customers can trust when they most rely on them.

Ian will explain how to determine and calculate load type, the importance of correct battery capacity, selecting the optimum cable sizes, circuit protection measures, different charging sources including solar panels and battery management.

This session will help ensure you secure your share – and more – of this rapidly growing market and tap into the eagerness of recreational vehicle owners to purchase a reliable and lasting secondary energy supply to power their adventures.

Life After R134a

VASA Vice President Brett Meads will deliver an overview of the new industry standard air-conditioning refrigerant R1234yf, which is now replacing R134a globally.

Uptake of R1234yf is accelerating since almost 200 countries, including Australia, forged a historic agreement last year for the global phase down of R134a refrigerant used in automotive air conditioners, along with a number of other HFC products.

Brett will explain the history and evolution of automotive refrigerants, the drivers of change including ozone depletion and global warming potential, how industry has responded to overseas legislation controlling HFCs, a comparison of current and new refrigerant characteristics including flammability, changes to equipment, components and working procedures brought about by new refrigerants and the related standards, licensing and legislation.

VASA member workshops report that a growing number of brands are already importing vehicles using R1234yf and insurance companies are interested in building a database of businesses equipped and trained to handle the new refrigerants.

The first vehicles using R1234yf started arriving on the Australian market in 2014, so if you service, repair or recommission automotive air-conditioning systems, now is the time to act, and attending this session is your first step toward preparing for refrigerant changes.
