The Texense IRN8C-F1-V2 is a 8 channel infrared sensor that's dedicated to Tyre Temperature Monitoring.
This product was developed first for Formula 1 application. This sensor is primarily for use in open wheel applications. For Sports car or Prototype tire temp sensors refer to the IRN-RC Series sensor strips. This is due to the mounting distance and angles between the measured areas.
It allows to measure a line of 8 spots on a tyre width and therefore if installed at the correct distance will give the surface tyre temperature distribution.
The Texense IRN8, combining perfect accuracy at 200°C (± 1%FS) and good temperature compensation, is the ideal solution to measure surface tire temperature on the whole width in most severe conditions.
The quality of design, dimensions (31 x 11 x 17 mm) and weight with cable (only 15g) offer to the customer an easy installation. In addition to its compact size, the mounting distance between 200 and 700 mm could give a reading of total width between 152 and 532 mm in 260 milliseconds at 200°C.
This configuration means that the Texense IRN8 is the mix of technology and usability.
On the side of innovation, the Texense infrared have evolved during the time for supply now a protection lens on the 8 channels infrared. The results are long life and reliable data.
The Texense IRN8 is available on -20 to + 200°C range with a supply voltage between 6 and 16V.
