Interconnect solutions for fuel tank applications

Mastering fuel equipment performance and efficiency is key to winning precious seconds on both the track and in the pit.  Data acquisition in the field requires specific equipment, whether immersible or not, to have excellent resistance to racing fuels and fluids, great anti-corrosion properties and withstanding pressure differential without loss of electrical performances.
