Vibration, Position and Pressure Sensors for Motorsport Applications

Follow Company:

Strainsense Ltd is a supplier of specialist sensors and instrumentation devices to the Autosport, Aerospace, Subsea, Rail and Test & Measurement industries.

Our range of autosport sensors has been specifically engineered to perform in the harsh conditions found in and around racing cars and motorcycles. We have a proven track record in many classes of motorsport and our four decades of experience designing and manufacturing sensors allows us to provide our customers with custom products as well as off-the-shelf sensors.

Vibration Sensors

We supply vibration-sensing accelerometers to measure the low g-ranges of acceleration, braking and cornering forces, and the high ranges of vertical loading, suspension and vibration. Sensors are rated at various temperature ranges up to 260ºC.
