RDP Electronics Ltd. - PRODUCT NEWS

RDP takes the strain. KSR Engineering Ltd, based in Scunthorpe, specialises in the development and manufacture of brake, clutch and accelerator mechanisms for many international car makers. With facilities in over fourteen countries worldwide, and huge expansion plans in progress, KSR Engineering is one of the largest companies in its field and is at the forefront of developments of car controls including 'fly by wire' technology. "Nearly all automotive testing is focused primarily on safety issues," explains Peter Wilson of KSR, "but we needed to measure the effects of metal fatigue as well." With no suitable equipment available, KSR developed their own equipment to monitor potential fatigue and fault conditions in automotive systems. "We chose RDP¹s Modular 600 series as the central component for strain gauge measurement. The monitoring system will be used initially to analyse load deflections and establish the quality of components." Several major motor manufacturers have already shown interest in KSR¹s unique measurement system for their own use putting RDP¹s strain gauge measurement systems at the cutting-edge of world-wide automotive research. _____________________________________________ For more information, please contact :- RDP Electronics Limited Grove Street, Heath Town, Wolverhampton WV10 0PY.
