Specifically designed for use in Formula 1, Isabellenhütte Heusler’s IVT-F integrated current sensor provides teams with a controlled means of acceleration. The module has been integrated in the Electric Kinetic Energy Recovery System (E-KERS) that forms part of the power transmission of F1 cars. The unit is a three-channel measuring system for current, voltage, and temperature. Isabellenhütte’s IVT-F controls the quantity of power supplied by the E-KERS. According to Isabellenhütte, the F1 umbrella organization Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile intends to use the IVT-F to ensure that the racing teams will not use E-KERS to break the rules. With an operating life minimum of 2000 km (1240 mi), IVT-F has an internal sample rate of 3.5 KHz and fixed calculation of mean value over 16 sampling values.
