Custom position sensor developed to monitor the linear displacement of a suspension ‘bootstrap’ accumulator on a Formula 1 race car.
Mounted to the exterior of the accumulator, the sensor monitors 90mm linear travel of the piston through the aluminium accumulator wall and across a total 35mm measurement gap.
The application was subject to extremes of temperature and vibration, so the product body was manufactured in Peak material.
As with most Formula 1 projects that we undertake, the delivery timescale requirements were very tight. Time from initial brief to product delivery was just 3 weeks.
