Texys Group displayed its latest range of sensing solutions at Automotive Testing Expo Europe this week, including a variety of new products resulting from its acquisition of two companies – Optel and LGS – in 2020. This has resulted in the integration and development of a variety of fiber-optic speed sensing systems, the latest of which is a highly compact unit intended for embedded applications running at very high speeds. With a detection range of 1-5mm and able to operate with a switching frequency of up to 300kHz, the 152G7-E has been designed specifically for integration into operational prototypes instead of being limited to use on the test bench.
Speaking at the expo, the company’s head of business development, Ivan Tattier, explained, “This uses the same technology as our other systems but you don’t have the big potentiometer and it is auto-adjusting. We are equipping a lot of projects such as Formula 1 engines – for turbocharger speed, MGUs – with this. It is very robust and designed to be embedded.”
