A DTM style potentiometer was fixed on our throttle slide. Needless to say that we don’t want this old skool solution. These “things” are used in vintage amplifiers and give a lot of cracking but that is not wanted on our engine management.. Although vintage is in we are don’t go with the flow …
We bought a redundant Hall variety (at P&G) but we almost needed a magnifying-glass to see the new solution. Plug and play : forget it !
We called in Nick to construct a nice stainless steel tool and the problem was solved.
It is possible to measure the position of the throttle slide with a 10 bit accuracy without the vintage noise.. or other disadvantages.
A first try out can be seen in the pictures. Probably this will be adapted in the final version and the bolts will be shortened.
