ATi’s Steering Effort Systems are used to measure steering wheel torque continuously, utilizing a strap-on steering wheel sensor that transmits a real time torque measurement via radio telemetry. The sensor is available in most any torque capacity and transmits the torque signal to a portable telemetry receiver. The sensor has a built-in telemetry transmitter which is powered by a standard 9 volt battery. The sensor is quickly and easily attached to the stock steering wheel with cable ties and does not require any modifications to the vehicle. A rubber whip style receiving antenna can be mounted most anywhere and connects to the receiver.
The receiver supplies an analog output for connection to recording devices. Highly reliable, durable and immune to the environment, the system can be used in most any environment and is immune to shock, vibration and extreme conditions. Since no slip rings or stay rods are used, the system is virtually maintenance free and will provide years of trouble free service. Our systems have proven their worthiness in numerous military and race car applications and can withstand the harshest of conditions.
