2017 Full product catalog available
KA Sensors is pleased to offer a catalog for the full product range of motorsport engineered sensors and support instrumentation. For 2017 we have upgraded many of the products with new features, expanded ranges and more precise specifications. Please click here to receive a catalog.
Lightweight Rugged Rotary Position Sensor Set for Release
The KR22 series of rotary potentiometers are designed to withstand the harsh environments of motorsport applications and automotive testing applications.
Using proven ‘conductive plastic’ technology, the sensors offer high performance and reliability at temperatures up to +350°F.
With a small and lightweight 0.88in diameter body these are ideal for many applications within both motorsport and automotive testing and development programs.
Available in either single (3 wire) or dual (6 wire) outputs. The modular design allows for various mounting arrangements for the sensor and also importantly the different shaft/drive types.
The KIR16X4 infra-red tire temperature sensor
The KIR4 Series of miniature infra-red temperature sensors
ASH High Endurance Pressure Transducer
The ASH Series of high performance pressure transducers have been designed for extreme endurance and high temperature installations in motorsport and automotive applications.
These are ideal for high precision data acquisition or control systems. The transducers can be installed directly onto vehicles or as part of a test stand or dyno.
The transducers offer a high level of reliability and endurance, they are protected against the high vibration, shock and high temperatures found in motorsport. Continuous operation up to 300°F allows for installation in hot zones.
The modular construction and programmable amplifier provide a fast delivery time for standard and custom configurations. Pressure ranges offered between 15 psi to 6000 psi absolute or sealed gauge reference.
RHL3 Laser Ride Height Sensor
Supplied in two standard measurement ranges of 8 inches (2.4 to 10.4 ins.) or 20 inches (8 to 28 ins.), the RHL3 is ideal for use on all types of vehicle including Formula Cars, NASCAR, Touring, Indy Cars, GT, LMP, Rally, Off Road, Karts and more.
The measurement rate of 750Hz and linearity between 0.2 to 0.5% ensures a fast and accurate recording of real time car data.
The supply voltage is a common 11-30V which is readily available on most data logging systems and the analogue voltage output is 1-5V.
Construction is ruggedized against high vibration and temperature. An anodized aluminium case has a choice of electrical connection. Either Deutsch connector or a low profile cable exit can be selected. The glass lens can be replaced easily in the event of damage.
Model RHL3 can also be used for other non-contact displacement measurements such as: Wing deflection, Chassis distortion, Bodywork deflection, Suspension setup.
Bike Magazine Performance Test
Semi-active: magic carpet or myth?
In a world first, Bike puts Aprilia’s and Ducati’s semi active and standard suspension through a battery of scientific tests to find out if it works, and which is best.
Rage - Hub Centric Steering for Sports Bike
Having moved off the drawing board this is now the second stage of the project, essentially a test bike has been built to prove the theoretical models.
With a fairy conservative 1098s engine (160bhp ) being used as the development engine, allowing the continued development of the hub centric steered chassis. The ultimate desire is to have a 190 to 210bhp engine to be fitted for full competition use.
The leading edge project is being run by Alto Performance
