Brake balance adjustment sensors

Brake balance systems in racecars are often adjusted remotely. The driver adjusts the bias between the front and rear brake systems from the cockpit depending on the ever-changing track and tyre conditions. Correct brake balance allows the driver to brake later and heavier into corners, which helps improve lap times. Rear brake lock-ups can cause the rear end to become loose and cause a potential spin. Position sensors are used in brake balance systems to monitor or control adjustments made by the driver during the race. Active Sensors offer a number of 'motorsport ready' sensor solutions for brake balance systems.

For bespoke applications we offer a comprehensive design, manufacture and speedy delivery service to satisfy the fast paced engineering developments associated with international motorsport.

Linear potentiometers

CLS linear potentiometers are designed for the most demanding control and measurement systems. Available with a choice of mounting options and measurement ranges up to 1000mm (40"). A hardwearing electrical track provides long life and excellent resistance to vibration and shock.

Magni-Tec contactless linear sensors

Magni-Hall® contactless linear position sensors are based on true solid-state 'hall-voltage/magnetic-field' measurement technology. Sensor designs are available with single or dual, triple and quadruple outputs and design benefits, include improved output signal linearization over the measurement range, overall sensor accuracy and higher operating temperatures compared to similar position sensor products.

Magni-Tec contactless rotary sensors

Magni-Hall® contactless rotary position sensors are based on true solid-state 'hall-voltage/magnetic-field' measurement technology. Sensor designs are available with single or dual, triple and quadruple outputs and design benefits, include improved output signal linearization over the measurement range, overall sensor accuracy and higher operating temperatures compared to similar position sensor products.
