The RLACS314 brake temperature sensors have been specifically designed for use with the Brake Temperature Monitoring System App on VBOX Touch to measure, log and display the surface temperature of a brake disc, providing invaluable information to the driver during testing. Each sensor can measure up to 16 temperature points on an object with surface temperatures ranging from -20°C to 950°C.
Install the infrared temperature sensors and wiring loom onto your vehicle. Make sure that the sensors are positioned directly opposite and across the surface of each brake disc.
Two 3.2 mm holes are available on either side of each sensor for secure mounting to the chassis. Alternatively, you can use 3M Dual Lock to mount them, however, we do advise that you tether them to the chassis as well.
Be aware of the order in which the 16 infrared beams are arranged when you mount the sensors. See the image below and note the orientation of the sensor in the diagram. This is important when you select the Orientation of the sensors in the Sensor Settings menu.
Make sure that the infrared beams cover appropriate spots along the radial axis of the brake disc as illustrated in the image below.
When you have completed the installation, plug the Lemo connector from the infrared Brake Temperature Monitoring loom into a 'CAN / SERIAL' socket on the side of the VBOX Touch display.
