Throttle position sensors

A racecars throttle position sensor (TPS) is used to monitor the position of the throttle valve and is mounted on the throttle body. It coverts valve position into a proportional voltage signal which is fed to the engine control unit (ECU). The sensor signal is used by the ECU to control the ignition and fuel injection timing. The information from the TPS is critical for proper start up and smooth throttle response. When used in a 'drive by wire' system, the TPS is usually duplex in design (dual output signals) for sensor signal redundancy. Active Sensors offer a number of 'motorsport ready' sensor solutions for throttle position measurement.

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

Rotary potentiometers

RP rotary potentiometers are designed for the most demanding control and measurement systems. Used extensively in motorsport for throttle and gearbox control, steering angle measurement and the monitoring systems of the chassis. The RP is available with a choice of electrical angles and mounting options.

LVDT position sensors

AC LVDT sensors for industrial, automotive and aerospace control and measurement systems. Advanced manufacturing techniques ensure superior sensor stablity, accuracy and repeatability in the most hostile of environments up to 200°C (400°F). Measurement ranges from 1mm to 200mm (8").

MLS linear potentiometers

The Motorsport Linear Sensor (MLS) 'super' low-noise linear potentiometer designed for suspension measurement in motorsport data acquisition systems. The new 'long-life' sensor ensures a longer 'noise-free' operating life in severe vibration and high G-force conditions.

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.
