Real-time monitoring of engine valves
The Instrumentel Valve Telemetry System is a cost-effective electronic data acquisition and processing unit designed specifically for the testing and diagnostics of moving valves in internal combustion engines.
The system acquires and processes real-time, critical operating data such as temperature and strain from the valves within a working engine, usually with the electonics being mounted at the top of the valve with temperature sensors featuring at the base where the temperature is at its maximum.
Variations of the system have to date been successfully applied to monitoring piston head and valve head temperatures in high performance motorsport engines, but it is equally applicable to commercial and consumer diesel and petrol engines
Delivers high quality data from in-operation engines
The Instrumentel VTS delivers high quality data from in-operation engines, providing a unique insight into critical operating parameters such as strain or temperature from pistons, valves and turbos.
High temperature, compact electronics plus wireless power and communications
The VTS features high temperature, compact electronics plus wireless power and communications, delivering data directly from normally inaccessible engine parts during operation.
Providing development engineers with important information to improve reliability and performance of the engine
Such engine diagnostics provide essential feedback on critical engine parts during normal operation, providing development engineers with important information to improve reliability and performance of the engine.
