Aim instruments can measure the relative displacement between two different points using a sensor (rotary potentiometer) directly connected to the two measure points. This sensor may be used to measure angular displacements, such as throttle position. You can see how much throttle the driver applies. This can help to see if they are lifting, or not on the throttle quick enough after the corner.
The sensor has been designed to measure rotational displacements between a fixed point, called “reference point”, and a movable one.
The first installation step consists in fixing the potentiometer to the chassis using two M3 screws or a self-made iron bracket. Once the sensor mounted on your vehicle, you can connect the rotating cursor to the throttle or to the pedal or to other moving elements.
Please ensure that when the throttle is in its “zero position” (i.e. when the throttle is not pressed), the potentiometer is in its “zero position” too and when the throttle is completely pressed, the potentiometer is in its “high” position.
This instrument’s mechanical measure range goes up to 130°, while the electrical measure range goes up to 106°. Please, do not exceed the instrument maximum measure range. If you need to measure bigger displacements, please use a different sensor: an incorrect use may seriously damage the sensor.
