Revolutionizing Formula E Racing with Allengra’s ALSONIC Range

The Formula E World Championship is a motorsport governed by the FIA, featuring exclusively electrical vehicles, instead of traditional combustion-powered ones like in Formula 1.

It takes place in various countries throughout the world from January to June; these races unfold on temporary street circuits with tight corners, various road surfaces and limited space, creating a competitive environment.

Sustainable Adrenaline: A Greener Option in Motorsports

Nowadays with the current climate change situation, environmental impact is an issue that needs to be diminished with every opportunity. Electrical racing vehicles emit zero tailpipe emissions; therefore, they create a more environmentally responsible setting.

Without the use of combustion engines, these cars use lithium-ion batteries for power, that can generate tremendous heat. Using this alternative power source, a risk may arise: overheating.

In motorsports, component cooling relies heavily on airflow generated by high speeds, but in the intricate world of Formula E, this may not happen that often, due to the circuits design that prioritize precision rather than speed.

Diethylene Glycol Dibutyl Ether plays a crucial role in the cooling process within Formula E cars that efficiently transfers heat away from critical components, such as the electric motor and battery.

ALSONIC Range: The Next Contender in Formula E?

Allengra’s sensors rely on the Ultrasonic Technology, that provides the highest accuracy and repeatability in measuring flow velocity, all this happening in real-time via Modbus communication interface or for special configurations, LIN Bus – check out Allengra's ALSONIC Flow Sensors: A Comprehensive Guide

Coming in Brass and Plastic they range from DN15 to DN50 equipped with a Gas Bubble Detection system and Freezing Point Estimation for water-glycol mixtures, suitable for Formula E applications.

Allengra Flow Meters makes Formula E cars Faster

The most crucial aspect for speed in motorsport is weight. Allengra takes pride in offering one of the lightest flow meters available on the market. Because these sensors utilize Ultrasonic Technology, they don’t require any mechanical moving parts that can cause wear & tear and they are tailored with a no-dead-space design that seamlessly integrates into tight environments.
