New Oil Contamination Sensors
(31st Jan 2018)

New Product - Oil Contamination sensors - save your gearbox!

We are pleased to bring you a new product for 2018.....

The KMS series of miniature condition monitoring sensors are designed to detect the presence of ferrous material in oil systems.

In particular the sensor can be used to monitor gearbox and transmission oil for signs of change or wear in the gear box or differential.  Monitoring the amount of ferrous material in the oil over time can help with preventative measures to save impending failure.  So for example rapid increase in contamination levels could indicate case hardened gears wearing, and spikes can indicate broken tooth or metal objects.  Advance warning of these could save a race, or save further damage or total failure.

Simple installation with an integrated temperature sensor which also assists with engine condition monitoring.

Announcing Our New Look!
(24th Jan 2018)

Since formation in 2006 we have pretty much stuck with the same black and red logo style.  Although it has served us well and is recognisable we feel its time for a change to evolve the identity to reflect where we are now as well as in the future.

So you will start to see our new logo, font and colours start to come through on literature and products in 2018.  We launched the new identity at the Autosport Show where it was well received.

KA Sensors are motorsports specialists of course but the technology we develop has applications across other industries and sports which means that we are regularly working on some very different and exciting projects in addition to our core business.

We are always keen to work with our clients on exciting new development projects and can supply a single component to a complete system.

Our Technical Sales and Support Team will ensure that every aspect of your sensor application is thoroughly analysed to make that the correct product is specified and supplied.

Please call us with your requirements!

Case Study for Motorcycle Rear Wheel Torque Transducers
(8th Nov 2017)
Our clients regularly conduct track testing of motorcycles where we can measure acceleration, speed and suspension movement but not the power produced at the rear wheel. Power is one of the most important parameters affecting performance. Power can be measured on a dyno but the results do not correlate to the actual on track real world, so a solution was needed.
 
Please click on the case study below for more detail on what we have come up with !
 
 
Motorcycle Rear Wheel Torque
(13th Oct 2017)

The technical challenge of accurately measuring power at the rear wheel during track testing has meant that we have developed the Rear Wheel Torque Transducer.  Results obtained using a dyno do not necessarily translate to the real world as the bike is used on a circuit.

The KA Rear Wheel Torque Transducer allows power to be measured during a track test so that you can understand and analyse where and how much power is used around the circuit.

The unit replaces the rear sprocket carrier and works with many popular race wheel sets.
