Sensor specialist Texense had introduced its latest offering, the TPMS-RS21 system with corner recognition. The company says the solution offers a compact, lightweight package with easy installation and rim compatibility. Features include high-speed pressure, internal temperature and relative humidity measurement in addition to a replaceable battery.
The company states that for a budget TPMS sensor, the ability to measure relative humidity is a noteworthy addition, while the replaceable battery also reduces unnecessary scrapping of wheel sensors after one or two race seasons, a useful cost saving for teams.
The system has been trialled in F2 and F3, apparently achieving 97% coverage per lap during races. The sensor is available in two versions, one with corner recognition, while the receiver is also available either as a basic measurement unit or a more complex version offering development functionality.
The TPMS can also be paired with a handheld remote unit for use in the pitlane; it features a clear, color display and has been designed to be easily used even when wearing gloves.
