Connecting rod temperatures are challenging to measure, but our lightweight, durable transmitters are routinely mounted to the rod and send multi-channel thermocouple data to a stationary receiver. By gaining the temperature distribution of a connecting rod, engineers can better predict the distortions and thermal stresses induced by operation. Our real time data flow from the connecting rod yields valuable insights as to how this temperature distribution changes from startup to steady state operation. Thermal fatigue and the impact of load on the engine can also be varied and time-sync'd with the thermocouple and other sensor data we can transmit.
Getting temperatures from connecting rods is a mainstay of our operations, installing transmitters on the rod requires precision machining and wire routing from sensor locations to the transmitter. This is handled by or expert engineers and technicians, yielding a turn-key solution and guarantee of successful data transfer.
