Michigan Scientific Corporation (Booth 11020) has used Day 1 of Automotive Testing Expo, Novi, Michigan 2019 to debut its latest improvement in wheel force transducer testing. The company, which has nearly 60 years of expertise in the design and manufacturing of testing equipment, unveiled its new Stator Angle Correction (SAC) Device, which prevents steered wheel errors and provides superior accuracy for position referencing.
“In the past, customers had to make custom rackets over the wheel to prevent an error from the rod tipping as they used the wheel force transducer in steering maneuvers,” says Andrew Cook, vice president at Michigan Scientific Corporation. “But this SAC measures the angle of the rod and corrects for it, preventing any errors.”
With simple, rugged construction, the SAC eliminates the need for over-the-wheel bracketry and tedious post-processing of wheel force transducer data. Thanks to a waterproof rating of IP67, it will also stand up to testing in any environment – from controlled laboratory environments to harsh outdoor conditions. It’s another innovative automotive testing solution from a company that prides itself on an enduring commitment to research and development.
“It’s backwards compatible with all the systems we have out there so it’s really easy for customers to install and use. People who use our wheel force transducers and have seen it today really like it.”
