Every Second Counts!

Formula Student is an exciting series of races where technical colleges and universities in Germany meet up on the track with race cars they’ve designed and built themselves. These events are super popular and always draw a lot of fans!

For students, this is an exciting challenge that encourages competition while having fun. It’s also a project with a strong technical and real-world application focus. Many faculties get involved in this project. For example, the management studies team organized the logistics and business plans, the mechanical engineers worked on the chassis and electrical engineering students tackled the wiring on the vehicle.

The racing team from Chemnitz Technical University also took to the track in the Formula Student Electric event. Because Chemnitz is very close to Stollberg, home to the Murrelektronik Competence Center for connectors and cordsets, we sponsored the team with automation components. The components on the CAN bus system for their race car, The Green Flyer, featured first-class M8 and M12 cordsets from Murrelektronik.

Jan Wiesner, the association director of T.U.C.  Racing Club, said, “After producing a new vehicle, the installation concept often needs to be converted after each race. That’s where Murrelektronik’s connectors come in! Their accessory components like T-couplers are very convenient because we’re able to quickly connect a new component.” And speed matters - especially in the sport of racing!
