Electronics

Electronics, wiring, sensors and software are the key to modern vehicles. We have full wiring harness design capability as well as manufacturing and automated Cirrus testing for motorsport and broader automotive wiring. We can handle everything from an individual sensor to a complete LV and HV electrical solution.

We are able to supply, configure and calibrate most commonly available motorsport electronics products as well as developing custom control code and functionality, either at base code level or through MatLab simulink modelling.

Custom electronic products such as switch panels, steering wheels, CAN interfaces and headlight units – we’ve developed all of them for client projects.

Recently, we completed a full custom HMI solution for a high-performance production supercar, including integrated full colour displays with custom graphics, centre console control unit, integrated Bluetooth, dedicated switch panels and full video recording facility.

When Mercedes-Benz commissioned us to build the ultimate version of the SLR McLaren, the 722 GT, the 400 components we changed included the wiring loom. Our specialist team demonstrated their expertise by completely redesigning the loom and integrating motorsport-focused features.

We used bespoke control units to facilitate the replacement pneumatic sequential gearbox, and planned and carried out extensive alterations to transform the SLR from road car to race car.

Besides the custom-built loom, we installed state-of-the-art ECU technology, full data logging software and an RML-designed paddle-shift Motec steering wheel featuring a Mini Digital Display and multiple functions such as engine management and pit limit.

The redesign of the electronics played a vital role in the 722 GT’s weight loss goals and its redefined status as a thoroughbred race car.
