Highly precise measurement sensor technology from Texys® for demanding automotive engineering tasks.
XN4-D: Analogue PCB miniature dual strain gauge amplifier
The TEXENSE® XN4-D, an analogue PCB miniature dual strain gauge amplifier and the latest development from Texys, provides high resolution and a sampling rate of up to 9 kHz.
The innovation embodied in this sensor is the duality; i.e., two outputs for different loads with the highest possible signal resolution.
Amplifier 1 is intended for a higher load and delivers, for example, 5 V at 4,800 daN.
Amplifier 2 is designed for lower loads, e.g. for values between 0.8 V at 0 daN and 4.8 V at 1,000 daN.
The XN4-D can be set through its serial port such that amplifier 2 delivers the desired output signal.
Amplifier 1 delivers, according to the amplification factor set in advance, a weaker signal.
The amplifier provides, between a programmable offset (in mV of 0-5 V), a programmable amplification (of 70-1,250, in 1/10 steps).
INF (V/T) 150°C / 200°C / 1000°C / 1200°C
The INF V/T sensor is available in two different housing types (M12 or bloc T) and with different temperature ranges. With measuring ranges of up to 150°C or 200°C, the sensors are suitable for non-contact measurement of tyre surface temperatures and provide a linear output signal. Sensors with wider measuring ranges are provided for measuring brake disc temperatures. The output signal in this case is non-linear. Daily cleaning of the sensor lens with alcohol is recommended to ensure precise measurement.

INF-1000-MC: Infrared sensor for brake disc temperature measurement
Its small dimensions and integrated military connector make this new version of the brake disc temperature sensor easy to install. The INF-1000-MC has a non-linear output signal. Daily cleaning of the sensor lens with alcohol is recommended to ensure precise measurement of brake disc temperatures.
INF-CLT-500, INF-CLT-700, for automotive clutches
The INF-CLT sensors were specially developed for non-contact measurement of clutch plate temperatures. Two versions are available, with measuring ranges from 0°C to 500°C or from 0°C to 700°C. We recommend daily cleaning of the sensor lens with alcohol to ensure precise measurements.
IFbN-200, for measurements in harsh environments
The IFbN sensor operates with a photodiode. The fibre optic cable permits a separation of up to 70 cm between the measuring point and the actual sensor. This allows measurements in environments with very high temperatures (up to 200°C) or strong electromagnetic fields. The end of the fibre optic cable can be adapted according to customer specifications. M3 or M4 threads are examples of available options.

IRN-RC 3- to 8-channel infrared tyre temperature sensor for CAN bus
The IRN-RC sensor was developed to meet special requirements for temperature measuring on car and motorcycle tyres. With its 3 to 8 infrared measuring points positioned on a flexible basis, this sensor allows, in particular, temperature measurements on the tread and sidewalls of car and motorcycle tyres.
The measurement data are available as a CAN signal with individual identifiers and baud rates.
For further information please consult the Data sheet.
IRN2-T, IRN2-V, with separately available USB connection adapter
The digital IRN2 non-contact temperature sensor is available in two different housing types (M12 or bloc T) and with different temperature ranges. The emission factor of the sensor can be digitally adjusted through the separately available USB connection adaptor according to the sensor’s distance from the object of measurement.
25°C to 300°C or 500°C or 1200°C
50°C to 850°C
IRLDF 200°C / 800°C, for measuring materials with a very low emission rate
The IRLDF sensor operates with a photodiode. This allows measurements on materials with a very low emission rate, such as steel brake discs, and a very short response time of only 3 ms. The amplification factor of the sensor can be digitally adjusted through the separately available USB connection adaptor according to the sensor’s distance from the object of measurement.
IRN4C, IRN8C, readings directly through the CAN bus
The IRN4C and IRN8C non-contact infrared sensors measure four to eight temperatures and deliver the readings directly through the Can bus interface. The sensors are aligned in a fan-like configuration, measuring across a linear range that varies in width with the distance between sensor and temperature measuring points.
