Air Bag Compatible Steering Effort Sensor

Digital IR telemetry offers continuous, non-contact torque data from the very low mass, rotating steering sensor to a stationary receiver. This system provides a portable, state-of-the-art steering effort sensor. It can be used in the field, laboratory, or on the test track to measure steering torque and angle requirements.

Model number: 01184
