AiM instruments can measure the relative displacement between two different points using a sensor (rotary potentiometer) directly connected to the two measure points. This sensor may be used to measure angular displacements, such as throttle position.
This instrument’s mechanical measure range goes up to 130°, while the electrical measure range goes up to 106°. Please, do not exceed the instrument maximum measure range . If you need to measure bigger displacements, please use a different sensor: an incorrect use may seriously damage the sensor.
Monitoring throttle input can be extremely useful in translating data correctly. This information can be vital to understanding if curtain vehicle characteristics are caused by driver input or car setup.
