Triple Eight Race Engineering is using position transducers supplied by Variohm Components on its Vauxhall Vectra touring cars.
The team’s use of Variohm’s linear and rotary transducers is down to positive experiences in the 98/99 season, where the transducers had needed no maintenance whatsoever during the time they were on the cars. The team had to strip, clean and adjust previous components after just two races.
The units use a potentiometric principle and employ an elastomer damping system on the wipers for long life under arduous conditions.
