PITCHMARK

Eco Club V2 Spray Line Marker Interconnection Unit

Electronic design and production for Bristol based business

Pitchmark is a family run business hoping to raise the standard of sports pitch line marking and improve the quality of working life for ground staff. Founder, Mark Rodman, has over 30 years’ experience in the horticultural and amenity sector, both as an engineer and a groundsman.

Pitchmark manufacture and supply line marking paint and machines through a worldwide distributor network and have become increasingly popular among the sporting community. Their customers range from local sports clubs to some of the biggest football stadiums in the world. Their products have been supplied and used in several UEFA™ competitions including the UEFA Super Cup 2015™ in Georgia, the UEFA European Championships 2016 in France and the FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014™.

Mark knew Cubik Managing Director, Paul Mullen, from their joint involvement with local rugby club, Cleve RFC. He approached Cubik looking for help to manufacture batches of an interconnection unit to assist with the electrical system in the heart of Pitchmarks’ line marking machines.

The interconnection unit acts as the connection point for various components including the battery, pump, charger, and trigger. In the event of a system failure, such as over charging the battery or the pump becoming faulty, the interconnection unit isolates the power to ensure it does not demand too much current from the system. It also houses the protection fuses which ensure that the machines are safe to use.

HiETA

Adrian Schmieder of HiETA commented: “Cubik’s quick turn-around of a functioning PCB has sped the delivery of the project and enabled me to focus on areas of the project in which HiETA has expertise.  The project is a great success and produced valuable information even from its first use.  I am very impressed with the support Cubik provided me throughout the project, from initial concept through to PCB delivery.  I will not hesitate to engage with them again as future PCB projects arise.”
