Infra-Red Sensors

Non-contact temperature measurement with infra-red sensing elements packaged in either stainless steel (KIR-3) or light weight PEEK (High temperature plastic) housing (KIR-4).

Typical Applications: Brakes - Tyres

KIR3 Infra-red Tyre and Brake Sensor
KIR3 Infra-red Tyre and Brake Sensor

The KIR3 Series of miniature infra-red temperature sensors offers noncontact measurement of tyres, carbon & steel brake rotors, clutch and engine temperatures.  The KIR3 can be setup ready to use or we can supply user friendly software and programming lead for a customer to setup or re-range the sensor for a different application.

Typical applications include: Brakes - Tires - Clutch - Air Intake - Cabin Temperature

  • Fully Programmable
  • Miniature Size
  • Range -20°C to 1000°C
  • Ruggedized Construction 15:1 Optics
  • User Configurable
  • 0-5V Output
KIR4 Infra-red Tyre Temperature Sensor
KIR4 Infra-red Tyre Temperature Sensor

The KIR4 Series of Infra-red sensors offers a compact, robust and reliable soloution for non-contact temperature measurement and is mainly used to monitor tyre performance.

Typical applications include: Tyres - Air Intake - Cabin Temperature

  • Miniature Size
  • Range 0°C to 200°C
  • Ruggedized Construction
  • Linear Output
  • High Accruacy
  • 0.5 to 4.5V Linear Output
KIR16X4 CAN Bus Tyre Temperature Sensor
KIR16X4 CAN Bus Tyre Temperature Sensor

The KIR16X4 infra-red tyre temperature sensor provides race engineers with a matrix of 16 x 4 independent temperature points across a tyre.

It’s a very small lightweight sensor that has a CAN bus 1Mb output for direct connection to most modern data loggers.

User selectable modes offer a range of functions including CAN ID, bandwidth and distance to target.  The modes can be selected either over CAN bus or via an Android Configuration App.  A Technical Manual is available on request.

Typical applications include: Tyre Temperature Monitoring - Component Profile

  • 64 individual measurement points (16 x 4)
  • CAN Bus Output
  • 0 to 200°C Range
  • 40 or 60° Options
  • Miniature Size
  • User Configurable
  • 5 to 18 V Supply
