Wheel vector sensing system

  • 02-Aug-2011 09:37 EDT


The Corrsys-Datron RV-4 wheel vector sensing system from Kistler is designed to offer simultaneous measurements of all vehicle wheel displacement and directional coordinates in five axes. Used for complete wheel movement evaluation capabilities within numerous vehicle dynamics testing applications, the RV-4’s robust design incorporates use of five high-precision absolute positioning transducers that measure wheel deflection, camber, and X-, Y- and Z-movements (spring travel) within a vehicle coordinate system. Expressly designed for the incorporation of additional sensors and transducers, the system offers direct compatibility with Kistler wheel pulse encoders, slip angle sensors, wheel force transducers, dynamic camber systems, and laser ride height sensors (sold separately). The sensor portion of the RV-4 system, which operates on the test car exterior, is IP67 rated for all-weather testing, with high resistance to splash water, engine oil, and anti-freeze.
