Bringing tyre valve technology into the 21st Century
06 Dec 2018
Recognised for innovation, it may be surprising that most motorsport teams still use technology introduced in the 1890's as standard for tyre valves.
Identifying the deficiences inherent in this existing technology, Staubli have introduced a new connector for tyre inflation improving both performance and safety. Available in a number of rim interfaces, including the widely applied standards of the ETRTO (European Tyre and Rim Technical Organisation).
The clean-break technology introduced by Staubli ensures no loss of pressure on disconnection providing the required certainty and security. The two stage valving maintains the correct pressure even if the tyre valve is damaged resulting from racing incidents. Teams are provided with a safe and performance enhancing solution.
The introduction of the clean-break technology in combination with the two stage valving also removes the need for a dust cap, eliminating the time lost through removal and replacement during pit stop tyre pressure monitoring.
The Staubli connector is designed to interface with the latest TPMS (Tyre Pressure Monitoring System).
Developed to withstand the g-force loads generated by rapid acceleration and deceleration as well as the high centrifugal loads generated during racing.
Designed to specifically answer the performance and safety requirements of the motorsport industry, the Staubli TDV03 is further available in variants fulfilling the demands of individual race teams and series.
