Formula One teams specify Active Sensors

Formula One teams specify Active Sensors

At the mid-point of the 2013 Formula One season, Active Sensors continues to be the 'Number One' supplier of high performance control and measurement position sensors to the F1 teams. The company continues to deliver full technical back-up, which includes track support ensuring the race cars arrive at the circuit compliant with FIA homologation rules.

The 2014 season sees important changes to the engine regulations with the introduction of 1.6 litre V6 turbocharged engines. The regulations also state that only five power units (including control circuits) can be used by a driver throughout the season (current regulations allow eight power unit changes). This will require manufacturers to have improved reliability when it comes to specifying control and electronic circuits for their engines.

Active Sensors says is has undertaken the homologation of its entire range of control and measurement sensors used in F1 (including the new Magni-Tec products), to ensure that when teams require new sensor designs based on current technology, the design is automatically covered by an FIA homologation certificate saving valuable time for engineers.

The new Magni-Tec position sensors are designed to enable our manufacturing to be 'customer responsive'.

"We build our sensors in state-of-the-art, semi-automated manufacturing cells. We can supply any sensor configuration with rapid delivery, satisfying our F1 development programs."

Active Sensors' product development processes include exhaustive laboratory, in-house and field testing to ensure the sensor performance specification stated is backed by 'real-life' experience. "This is our assurance to customers that our sensors are designed to perform."
