The KIR3 Series of miniature infra-red temperature sensors offers noncontact measurement of tires, 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 0.55 in. diameter
  • Range -5°F to 1800°F
  • Ruggedized Construction 15:1 Optics
  • User Configurable
  • 0-5V Output

KIR16X4 CAN Bus Tire Temperature Sensor
KIR16X4 CAN Bus Tyre Temperature Sensor

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

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 fields of views of 40° or 60°.  The modes can be selected either over CAN bus or via an Android Configuration App.

Typical applications include: Tire Temperature Monitoring - Component Profile

  • 64 individual measurement points (16 x 4)
  • CAN Bus Output
  • 32°F to 400°F Ranges
  • 40° or 60° View
  • Miniature Size
  • User Configurable
  • 5 to 18 V Supply
