The GST Series of gear lever load cells are designed for the detection and measurement of tension/compression forces in gear shift application. Construction is aluminum with a built-in amplifier which allows for a very simple installation, only 3 wires are needed for connection. Mechanical mounting is via M10 female threads, but custom designs are also possible. The output signal is proportional to the amount of force and is a linear 0.5 to 4.5V and can be connected to most common ECU’s. Configuration for either Sequential or ‘H’ Pattern gearboxes. The load cell can be supplied with or without a cover. The typical application is for use as: Flat Shift/Quick-shifter/Torque Cut/Ignition Cut/Clutch-free Gearshift on race vehicles. The load cells are generally installed on top of the gear change lever and will detect the level of force applied by the driver to change gear.
