Non-contact optical sensors Correvit SF-Motion / 2059A

Non-contact optical sensors Correvit SF-Motion


Correvit SF-Motion sensors are designed for motor sports applications to measure longitudinal and transverse vehicle dynamics.
  • Reduction of signal noise of speed and side-slip angle
  • Low signal delay of 6 ms
  • Conversion of measurands to any point of the vehicle
  • Capable of detecting driving direction – forward or backward
  • Low adjustment effort at the vehicle, shorter setup time, no running-in procedure
  • Small and leight-weight - optimized for motor sports applications
Correvit SF-Motion sensors use the proven Correvit technology. A special algorithm significantly reduces the signal noise. This algorithm and the high measurement frequency of 500 Hz enable a minimal signal delay of 6 ms. Integrated accelerometers enable the determination of additional measurands like longitudinal and transverse acceleration of the vehicle. Integrated angular rate sensors enable measurement of the pitch and roll angle as well as the rotation around the vertical axis of the vehicle. Moreover, further signals such as leveled acceleration or curve radius are already calculated inside the sensor. A conversion of speed to any point of the vehicle, e.g. center of gravity or rear axis is possible. Correvit SF-Motion sensors are specially designed for motor sport applications but the output of the a.m. additional signals provides the option to perform also a large number of measur-ands required for driving dynamics standard tests. In any case, these versatile sensors simplify the instrumentation of the vehicle and minimize application errors. Correvit SF-Motion sensors produce unparalleled accuracy on all standard testing surfaces, even under the most challenging conditions. They feature high-quality optical elements, the newest optoelectronical components and state-of-the-art high-performance signal processing based on DSP and FPGA's. Speed and distance information is updated at 500 Hz to track every highly dynamic maneuver. The delivered KiCenter software allows easy configuration. Programmable, standardized signal outputs and interfaces provide direct connection to PC and virtually all data acquisi-tion systems, making all measured values directly available.
