RAETECH's Front Hub Axial Wheel Force Transducers are designed to accurately and reliably measure wheel force along the spindle axis. This provides an effective means of measuring grip at each front tire.

This load cell replaces a standard super speedway style hub. RAETECH adapts a new Speedway Engineering hub to accept our load sensing element and bearing assembly. The instrumented hub installs on your spindle. The only modifications required are two holes drilled in the spindle. One hole is for a locating roll pin (which can be removed) and the other is the wire exit hole. The sensor does not use any form of telemetry, ensuring the same high reliability and noise rejection levels as the remainder of RAETECH's load cell products.

Like all RAETECH sensors, our Front Hub Axial Wheel Force Transducers are carefully designed via FEA and intended to live through years of service. It has a mechanically and environmentally protected load element, with a strain relieved and shielded lead wire.

All RAETECH load cells incorporate our SG Amplifier to provide a high level amplified output of 0.1 to 4.9V. This eliminates the need for external signal conditioning and greatly reduces the chances of EMI / RFI noise that can be picked up on low level strain gage signals. The SG Amplifier continuously measures the load cell temperature and compensates for temperature induced drift of the zero and gain. This feature ensures stable and accurate operation over a wide operating range. The zero offset and gain/load range may be customer configured, with an optional SG Amp Programmer and PC. The Front Hub Axial Wheel Force Transducers also feature a temperature output.
