Durable sensors for endurance racecar.
When racecar constructors RML Motorsport were commissioned
to produce the MG Lola entrant for the Le Mans 24 Hour race
they turned to Variohm-EuroSensor to provide data logging and
As the MG Lola was to be entered in a number of endurance races in
addition to Le Mans sensor reliability was a major factor in the team's
choice of a sensor supplier.
Eventually Variohm products were specified for four functions on the
MG Lola namely Suspension Height Monitoring, Steering Position,
Gear Selection Control and Brake Pressure. The first three functions
utilised potentiometers and the fourth a strain gauge pressure transducer.
All of these devices are "absolute" insofar as they do not use any memory
function they can be switched off or disconnected and will know precisely
where they are or the pressure they are seeing immediately power is
Variohm's range of sensors are used in many industries not just in
motorsport, typical applications would be in the fields of medicine,
machine control, process control and laboratory testing.
