Hello everybody, I'm in need of some information and hope that I'm right here. I'm building a race bike replica of a Suzuka 8h bike and they used some beacon receiver 1997-2000 that I am unable to find anywhere. Not the slightest information. The bike used a Pi research logging system and so I thought, that the receiver might be Pi too? Maybe you have some kind of information. In the end it may also well be "selfmade" with a infrared sensor and some electronics...I don't know. The housing obviously is selfmade. In the Pi Delta manual on page 58 they are showing something pretty similar.

Would love every bit of information! Thank you !

Hi

This looks like a System 4 beacon.

Please see the attached user guide. Beacon information starts on page 233.

Nice, that looks pretty close, from looking at the drawings in the manual. Timespan matches too. Thanks alot for that!!

Now that I probably know, what it is...where do I get one? I guess, Pi Research or Cosworth don't make them anymore [confused]

You could try contacting our sales team by calling +44 (0)1954 253 600 and we might have one in stock. I would be very surprised however!
Other than that you could ask around online or within our dealer network and someone might have a spare lying around.

Failing the above, you would have to look at upgrading to a newer beacon.
