Professional Awesome Racing CIRT

Pre-release sensors are available! Contact sales@professionalawesome.com for pricing.

The Professional Awesome Racing CAN bus Infrared Temperature sensor (CIRT) is a CAN based, multi-zone sensor constructed for use in harsh, motorsports environments. The CIRT is designed for high accuracy, versatility and ease of use while offering plug and play installation. Configurable to report up to 16 temperature zones, the CIRT also supports 50hz sampling rates with bus speeds up to 1M bit per second. IC temperature and gradient compensated for reliable performance, the CIRT also has an RGB LED indicator for diagnostics and setup. 

Thriving Under Stress

A racecar is a place where brute force and sensitivity work together for success and the CIRT has been designed with this in mind. Staying precise and accurate under the toughest conditions, the CIRT is fully sealed against vibration and moisture with its metal casing, electrically double-shielded construction and industry standard waterproof connectors. It has no gaskets or flanges to fail with external threading that allows for simple installation and protective lenses to be added. Additionally, the CIRT exceeds IP67 ingress protection levels.
