Did You Know?

Power steering was invented by independent inventor Francis W. Davis. As chief engineer in the 1920s of the truck division of the Pierce Arrow Motor Car Company, he saw how hard it was to steer heavy vehicles. So that he would be able to keep the profits from his future invention, Davis left his job, rented a small engineering shop in Waltham, Mass., and developed a hydraulic power steering system that led to power steering.

Racing To Victory



Last month was the first time FUTEK attended the Performance Racing Show in Orlando Florida. Due to the aftermarket nature of the show, this show was very different from any other show FUTEK attended in the past. In any case, the show was a huge success. The team displayed a variety of automotive sensors that appealed to the visitors, from the pedal force sensor to the submersible sensor. The show was such a success FUTEK is already signed up to exhibit at the show again next year. In the mean time, FUTEK hopes to continue its relationship with all of its contacts, both local and international. Please visit FUTEK at its next show in February, the MD&M West show, in Anaheim, CA.

Brake Evaluation

As common test among major automotive manufacturers, brake testing isn't only required by government regulation - it is also a safety measure that any consumer would definitely want undertaken before putting a vehicle into use.

Brake system testing is normally carried out during various stages of the manufacturing and design process. It starts from the initial development stage, followed by endurance, lab and track testing, and continues through the production process for an added quality assurance.

The instrumentation of brake testing includes the use of various specialty sensors, including the pedal force sensor. A pedal force sensor operates by being attached...

How Reliable is Your Sensor?

Sensor use in various industries is required to test a variety of functions, but the test results are only reliable if the sensors are providing correct information. Verifying these sensors regularly helps prevent product damage, ensures that sensors aren’t out of spec, and ensures accurate reporting. Various calibration / verification options are available to test sensor accuracy. However, in-house systems are typically complicated and expensive. Sending a system out can be time consuming and ineffective. An alternative option, FUTEK's VCal portable sensor-verification system is offered to enable quick in house testing of load cells, torque, force, and pressure sensors. It can be purchased at www.futek.com as an individual instrument, or as part of a system package.
