AIM Sensor Car/bike linear suspension potentiometer 13

AiM loggers can measure the displacement between two points using a sensor (linear potentiometer) directly connected to the points of measure. This potentiometer can measure linear displacements like:

  •   dampers compression or extension

  •   steering rotation measured through the rack displacement

When installing the sensor:

  •   be very careful avoiding possible bending of the internal cylinder; these bendings, occurring when over tightening the screws or in case of incorrect mounting, can seriously damage the sensor

  •   extract the internal cylinder for about 5 mm (0.2 inches) from the sensor lower boundary position. Please note: do not use this sensor to measure distances beyond the potentiometer maximum travel. The car/bike linear potentiometer can be connected to any analog channel of AiM loggers.

The drawing below shows sensors dimensions in millimetres [inches].
