Racelogic has developed a Steering Wheel Sensor, designed to accurately measure a vehicle’s steering angle or torque in tests such as ECE R79, ISO 4138 and ISO 7401. The sensor connects directly to a data acquisition system, such as the VBOX 3i GNSS data logger, via CAN, and it can be mounted and there is no need to remove the original steering wheel.
Key features include CAN Bus output; steering torque range ±20‐200Nm; steering angle resolution of 0.1°; calibration to ISO 17025 standard; a universal mount for easy installation; and it does not interfere with the vehicle’s steering wheel controls. Easy-access push buttons make it quick and simple to zero the steer angle and torque, once mounting is complete.
Existing steering wheel functions, such as vehicle control elements, will not be affected when using the Steering Wheel Sensor, and a universal steering wheel adapter is also included. The sensor can also be calibrated to ISO 17025 standard, if required.
