New low-noise, long-life shock pots launched

By DA Staff / 09 Jan 2011

Active Sensors Motorsports have introduced their latest position sensor innovation, the Motorsport Linear Sensor (MLS) ‘super’ low-noise linear potentiometer designed for suspension measurement in data acquisition systems.

The NEW long-life sensor, launched at Performance Racing Industry in Florida, ensures a noise-free operating life in severe vibration and G-force conditions. The MLS sensor, developed in partnership with racecar data engineers, utilises the latest ‘smooth-track’ technology coupled with ‘double-damped’ electrical contacts, that creates a shock-pot with exceptional immunity to the electrical noise often found in standard potentiometer designs.

The MLS ‘low-noise’ sensor is now in stock and available in three ‘slim’ housing diameters and linear measurement ranges from 0.4” (10mm) to 16” (400mm).
At PRI, Active Sensors also be showcased their range of linear and rotary contacting and contactless position sensors designed to measure throttle and gear position, clutch movement, steering angle, speed and much more
