Brake Master Cylinder Position Sensor

Brake Master Cylinder Position Sensor

A custom position sensor developed to monitor the linear displacement of the brake master cylinder on a Formula 1 race car.

Mounted to the exterior of the master cylinder, the sensor monitors linear travel of the piston through the aluminium master cylinder 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.
