The 1 Antenna Receiver Control Unit (known as an RCU) is a system for real-time detection, monitoring and storage of tire pressure and temperature data. Consisting of multiple components (which can be ordered separately or as a kit) the auto racing version uses one RCU to receive live data signals from the wheel sensors (WUS) installed on the inside of the rim, replacing the valve and integrating the valve itself, via a single antenna system located near the wheel axles.
The RCU is equipped with a free wire output and can interface with the vehicle logger via CAN line or analog signals. It is also equipped with internal memory for the eventual recording of parameters while the vehicle is running.
The system can be improved with optional triggers, paddock surveys, or mini-displays, depending on the team’s needs.
