The Mantis Infrared Temperature Sensor by
DRIVEN Racing. The Mantis non-contact infrared sensor utilizes
a 17 bit analog to digital converter and a powerful digital signal processing
unit. With a resolution of 0.02°C,
the Mantis sensor is a highly precise measuring instrument.
A proprietary lens serves to create a wide-angle field of view for the sensor to
observe infrared radiation emitted
from the tire's surface. Additionally, the lens protects the sensor from being
damaged by road debris.
Encapsulating the sensor's electronic component assembly is a durable
injection-molded polycarbonate housing.
The Mantis display unit houses a glare-free liquid crystal display and a
processor capable of converting raw data
from the thermal sensor into valuable human-readable information, in real time.
Programmable alerts can be easily set, and are useful in alerting the rider when
his/her tire temperatures exceed
the desired range.
Maintenance on the Mantis is fast and easy. Prior to riding on the track, use a
clean cotton swab to remove dirt
and debris from the lens on each sensor.
The Mantis is not bike-specific and will fit most modern motorcycles. For use on
multiple motorcycles, additional
wire harnesses are available for purchase, to facilitate swapping the Mantis
between motorcycles quickly and easily.
