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 - general purpose, high performance

Both the SLS and MLS Series of linear potentiometers are designed using the proven benefits of composite track technology and include a number of design features. The SLS has a single track suitable for general applications, where performance and reliability coupled with competitive pricing is of importance. The MLS has a twin element conductive track design which provides superior performance under vibration and shock conditions. They are available with a range of case diameters and stroke lengths up to 500mm (20").

Magnetic hall contactless linear position sensors

Magnetic 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 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.

Magnetic hall contactless rotary position sensors - high performance

Magnetic 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 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.
