PCB Automotive Sensors offers Series 5400 wheel force transducers for road load data acquisition. Designed to mount between the vehicle hub and wheel rim, the rugged, one-piece, water-resistant units feature accurate measurements and are available in a variety of sizes for on- and off-road vehicles. Units can be fit with either slip ring or telemetry signal transmission and offer onboard signal conditioning and calibration circuitry. Suitable for heavy braking tests, the sensors also calibrate and adjust biaxial wheel test machines and perform product development of stability control, suspension, and tires. Units are available in aluminum, stainless steel, and titanium and accept modified rims to mount a range of tire sizes, wheel diameters, and offsets.
