RAETECH's Tie Rod Load Cell is designed to accurately and reliably measure steering loads on stock cars. A significant amount of lateral force is reacted through the tie rod. Tie rod loads can give a great deal of insight into tire grip.
Like most of our load cell line, this is a direct bolt-in replacement for the standard part, using a ¾-16 fine thread. Precision machined from 7075 T6 aluminum and designed with a high safety factor, RAETECH's Tie Rod Load Cells have been in use by many teams since their introduction in 2006.
Tie Rod Load Cells are supplied with integrated amplifiers that provide a 0.1 - 4.9V output. Alternate gains and offsets are user configurable with the optional SG Amp Programmer.
Detailed calibration information comes with each of our load cells and most 12-bit data acquisition systems will yield about 1 lb/count resolution. RAETECH engineers are always pleased to discuss how our load sensing equipment can best help your race program.
