An accurate, linear output temperature sensor for about $10?

At Autosport Labs, we like sensors with a predictable, accurate, and linear output. Even though we can map the temperature curve of any sensor, adding enough smarts to sensors to provide linearity and accuracy is quite appealing. When the sensor can be designed as a powered, active sensor,  you can also eliminate external components like the pullup resistors seen in […]

How to add a coolant pressure sensor and avoid a rookie mistake

Know before you overheat, not when you’re overheating Installing a coolant pressure sensor gives you the advance warning you need to handle a coolant pressure leak and avoid a time consuming failure, or worse – a catastrophic failure like a blown head gasket that will send you and your race team packing and home early. Plus, you’ll […]

New: Milspec wiring and SensorX breakout board

It doesn’t get higher quality than this – our twin conductor wiring is now milspec with some crazy specs – perfect for routing sensor connections around your hot engine. Check out the full specs in the store. SensorX breakout boards This Breakout board will distribute multiple sensor connections and let you shrink wrap it all in-line with […]

Updated SensorX breakout board

Super clean installs We have an updated Updated SensorX sensor breakout board! We’ve make the board more compact and change the pullup resistor spots to a friendlier through-hole design. Use the SensorX board when wiring in sensors for RaceCapture/Pro for a super clean install.  Add the included pull-up resistors for your passive temp sensors, then slip […]
