GSS Gear Shift Load Cell

The GSS Series of Miniature Load Cells are designed for the detection and measurement of tension and compression forces in Gear Shift Application. 

During the gear change sequence, the driver moves the gear lever as normal, the GSS Series Load Cell detects the force applied to the gear shift lever. This force is measured by the ECU, then a series of control events take place that allows the gears to mesh with full throttle still applied. 

Typical Applications Include: Aero Struts - Gear Shift - General Testing - Pedal Force - Steering - Suspension 

Features: 

  • Miniature Size
  • 5V or 8-16V Supply
  • ±250 & ±2000N
  • IP67 Sealed 
  • ±1% Accuracy
  • Rugged Construction
GST Gear Lever Load Cell

The GST Series of Gear Lever Load Cells are designed or the detection and measurement of tension and compression forces in Gear Shift Application. 

Installed directly on top of the gear lever, the GST Series Load Cell is fitted with an aluminium or nylon knob. Detection of the direct drivers input force is made when selecting gears. The Load Cell has a pre-amplified signal which is compatible with most ECU's, therefore ensuring  simple and reliable clutchless gear change strategy can be performed. 

Typical Applications Include: Gear Shift - General Testing - Steering 

Features: 

  • Sequential or 'H' Pattern Gearbox
  • Built-In Amplifier 
  • 5V or 8-16V Supply
  • ±150 & ±1000N
  • Rugged Construcion
  • ±0.5% Accuracy
KBP Brake Pedal Load Cell

The KBP Series of miniature low profile Load Cells are designed for the detection and measurement of compression forces on brake and other pedal applicaitons. 

Usually used for vehicle development measurements, the KBP can be used as a feedback device within control systems. 

Typical Applications Include: Brake Force - General Testing - Pedal Force 

Features: 

  • Miniature Size 
  • 5V or 8-16V Supply
  • Integrated Amplifier 
  • Low Profile
  • ±500 to ±2000N 
  • Rugged Construction

KA Sensors offers a bespoke service and very precise application and calibration of Strain Gauges to key components.

The Strain Gauge Service to both race teams and race car manufacturers. 

Typical Applications Include: Push / Pull Rods - Rod Ends - Suspension - Wing Supports - Wishbones 

 

Features: 

  • ±10 to ±30KN 
  • ±1000 to ±3000KG
  • Amplified Output
  • 5V or 8-16V Supply
  • Full Custom Service
