System for real-time detection, storage, and monitoring of tire pressure and temperature data. It consists of several components, which can be ordered in kits or separately.
The racing version uses one RCU (control receiver unit) to receive signals from the wheel sensors via a single antenna or two antennas located near the wheel axles. the RCU is equipped with a free wire output and can interface with the vehicle logger via CAN line or analog signals.
It is also equipped with internal memory for the eventual recording of parameters while the vehicle is running.
The wheel sensors (WUS) are installed inside the rim: they replace the valve and integrate the valve itself. They are available in different conventional sizes.
The system can be improved with optional triggers, paddock surveys, or mini-displays, depending on the team’s needs.
This product has found success in various fields of application, from GT customer racing and one-make GT series to professional motorsport (WEC, IMSA, and single-seater).
In the motorcycle world, the Tire Watch Racing system is used by several teams in WSBK and in MotoGP.
