Piston temperature measurement systems are custom-designed by IR Telemetrics, the technology leader in providing wireless transfer of data from internal reciprocating and rotating components. Real time steady state and transient data transfer from pistons and other components operating in their production environment is our specialty at IR Telemetrics. Piston temperature is recorded and transmitted using U.S. and foreign patented technology designed by IR Telemetrics. Temperature measurement is inherently difficult in harsh operating environments such as internal combustion engines and automotive transmissions. Pistons are especially challenging to measure because they are constantly in motion. However, wireless piston temperature measurement is reliable and accurate with IR Telemetrics.

Measurement of piston temperature is accomplished through infrared and microwave telemetry systems designed to provide the accuracy and highest resolution possible. Whether your measurements of piston temperature requires single or multiple channel data transfer, IR Telemetrics can provide you with a state of the art telemetry system to meet your temperature measurement needs.

IR Telemetrics develops leading edge piston temperature measurement technology. All of our piston telemetry systems are custom built to fit our customers' package requirements. IRT's wireless transmitters can be powered by batteries or inductively, depending on cost, timing and space constraints.
