MESLLogo150wFor the past eighteen months Transense has been working very closely with McLaren Electronic Systems developing, manufacturing and deploying our Torque sensor as part of a KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System) used very successfully in Formula One this season.

The real significance of this project has been the technical performance validation and commercial application of both the SAW (Surface Acoustic Wave) sensor and our patented Reader Electronics, within the extremely harsh and demanding operating environment of a F1 car, involving the wireless measurement of torque on a shaft rotating at up to 18,000 rpm.

Peter van Manen, McLaren Electronics said “We have enjoyed working with Transense Technologies in developing a successful torque measurement system that provides reliable and consistent measurements in the harshest of racing environments and we look forward to continuing cooperation with their technical team on further projects”.
