EcoCAR 2 would like to announce two new bronze competition-level sponsors to the program: Sensors, Inc. and Gage Products Company!
Sensors, Inc. was founded in 1969 and has evolved to become the leader in developing innovative gas analysis technology, primarily for use in the transportation industry. The company has decades of experience and expertise in the design and manufacture of measurement systems that are widely distributed throughout the U.S., Europe and Asia. Sensors, Inc. also provides in-field emissions and fuel-economy testing services covering a wide range of applications including on- and off-road vehicles and equipment, and marine, mining and power generation systems using internal combustion engines. In 1999, Sensors, Inc. acquired Sensors Devices in Germany, ensuring a presence in Europe and expanding its product base to include analyzers for environmental applications. The company’s emissions measurement solutions are used by government regulatory agencies and universities, as well as engine and vehicle manufacturers in the U.S., Europe and Asia, for the measurement of CO, CO2, NO, NO2, THC, NMHC, CH4, NH3, O2 and Particulate Mass. The company recently introduced ECOSTAR, its fourth generation of emission analyzers, and LASAR, a trace gas analyzer primarily employed in laboratories and test cells.
Sensors will be providing high-accuracy emissions measurement equipment and technical support for the Emissions and Energy Consumption events. Advanced Vehicle Technology Competitions (AVTCs) have used Sensors’ SEMTECH DS portable emissions analyzer with great since 2006 to measure tailpipe emissions and carbon-counted fuel economy. For EcoCAR 2, the SEMTECH units are installed in customized trailers towed behind the competition vehicles. Learn more about Sensors, Inc. at www.sensors-inc.com.
