Piston Pressure Measurement

Piston pressure measurement can be reliable and accurate with IR Telemetrics, the technology leader in providing wireless transfer of data from harsh environments like internal combustion engines or automotive transmissions. Piston pressure measurement that offers real time steady state and transient data transfer from pistons and other engine components operating in their production environment is our specialty at IR Telemetrics. Our technology measures the gas pressures around the rings using a lightweight, durable, and versatile wireless data transfer device that meets the stringent demands of harsh measurement environments. Pistons and other internal rotating and reciprocating components send pressure data using infrared and microwave telemetry systems. IR Telemetrics will exceed your expectations in piston pressure measurement. Our piston measurement technology can provide you with a state of the art wireless telemetry system to meet your development needs.

Choose leading edge piston pressure measurement technology to fulfill your specific measurement needs. Piston measurement at IRT utilizes on-board electronic devices designed to fit our customers' package requirements. State-of-the-art piston pressure measurement is driven by the challenge of expanding the application of wireless data transfer to meet the development needs of our customers. We can measure piston pressure using data transfer technology custom-designed for your project.
