LOS ANGELES, CALIF. – WEBWIRE – Wednesday, January 26, 2022
BYD (Build Your Dreams), the world leader in electric vehicles, Wednesday introduced its Type A battery electric vehicle, a zero-emission school bus that combines design, performance and safety together in a package built to meet the needs of students and administrators.
The BYD Type A offers innovative vehicle-to-grid technology, allowing the vehicle to serve as a power storage resource when its not transporting students. The Type A can seat up to 30, and can be equipped with an ADA liftgate capable of lifting 800 pounds. The bus has a range of up to 140 miles on a single charge.
This is a timely solution: BYDs Type A battery electric school bus is designed to be there for school districts 24 hours a day, both as a vehicle and power storage resource, said Stella Li, President of BYD North America. The BYD combination of top-notch safety features, innovative design and reliable performance makes this a practical and highly affordable zero-emission solution.
BYD made safety the top priority in its school bus design. Standard safety features include a high strength steel construction body, electronic stability control to aid handling, and an electronic braking system to ensure more evenly distributed brake force.
At the heart of the BYD Type A is its lithium iron phosphate battery, the safest and most reliable in the electric vehicle industry.
In addition, BYD adds an additional layer of protection with its Predictive Stop Arm, which monitors approaching traffic and notifies students as they exit the bus when it is safe to cross.
With length options of 26.7-feet, 24.5-feet and 22.9 feet, BYDs Type A battery-electric school bus is perfect for routes with fewer students and for transporting those with disabilities.
BYD buses can be equipped with HSM 3-point lap-shoulder belts, integrated child seats, and portable restraints. These school bus seats are not only designed to keep children safer, but they have the benefits of improving behavior, reducing bullying, and minimizing driver distraction.
With the driver being the first safety element, BYD drew from the experience of thousands of bus operators to enhance comfort and ergonomics in designing the drivers cockpit. The drivers area features comfort seats, a 16.5-inch power steering wheel and telescopic steering column, high level of visibility, and easy to reach control switches. The driver can also control the air conditioning over the cockpit in addition to controlling the system for passengers.
Just like our Type D bus introduced last year, our Type A bus bi-directional charging capability is a game changer, said Samuel Kang, BYDs Head of Total Technology Solutions. School buses can be charged overnight when energy demand is low, and clean emission free energy can be fed back into the classroom during school hours when the bus is parked keeping classrooms well-lit and students and teachers plugged-in.
BYD offers two kind of charging solutions to meet different needs. The150 kw DC charging solution is available with high charging power and efficiency. BYD also provides 19.2 kw single phase AC charging.
BYDs innovative battery-electric technology can cut fuel costs by as much as 60% compared to diesel vehicles. With fewer moving parts and less vibration, maintenance costs can be cut by as much as 60%.

Saelig Company, Inc. has introduced the MSR Electronics MSR86 – a compact, reusable temperature data logger that is equipped with an external sensor for covering the range of -100 to +150degC to allow continuous monitoring of storage and shipping temperatures for perishable goods. A built-in multifunction LCD display shows the current temperature reading as well as minimum, maximum, and average values, the status of the logger and the alarm condition, as well as the battery charge level. The MSR86 logger is tamper-proof and records encrypted, password-protected measurements for compliance with 21 CFR Part 11 guidelines. The logger’s accuracy is documented by a traceable calibration certificate available in its internal memory. The MSR86 is DIN12830 and 21 CFR Part 11 compliant and meets US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations for the storage and transport of chilled and frozen foods, as well as those of the EU.
There are many situations where it is imperative to maintain ambient conditions below a specified temperature to avoid spoilage or damage. The MSR86 is has been specifically designed to monitor the extremely low temperatures required during the transportation and storage of perishable products such as pharmaceuticals, enzymes, tissues, organs, vaccines, biological products, specimens, clinical materials and other sensitive products that require dry ice shipping. With its upper range of 150degC, the MSR86 data logger can also measure and record continuous high temperature profiles, such as found in ovens, autoclaves, and sterilizers.
Using the USB interface, the recorded measurement data can be easily transferred to a PC. After halting the data recording, a PDF report of the recorded measured values can be generated, which can be saved for documentation purposes. The report includes a graphical view of the temperature curve, a table of the measured values, and a statistical view of minimum, maximum, and average values, etc.
Made in Switzerland by MSR Electronics GmbH, specialists in designing miniaturized dataloggers for a broad range of uses, MSR86 loggers are available from Saelig, their US technical distributor.
