Division of Linear Corporation, Los Altos, CA 94022
Model No. M100
Serial No. 010066
Made in U.S.A.
The given weight includes the 650mm cable and 450mm pressure hose.
The radiometric temperature sensor operates over the range 0-260°C using a 8-14um spectral range and a field-of-view of 20°.
The label marking of "270JA" suggests this was from Division 270 (Monitoring & Control - part of GEC Avionics from at least 1989 to 1996), so it has been presumed this was a tyre monitor prototype that measured tyre pressure & temperature.
