  • Alfano Tyre Control pyrometer & pressure gauge ?

    TYRECONTROL - ALFANOALFANO

    I know Alfano is known for their karting equipment, but this pyrometer looks pretty nice for a one man show. It will take and store pressure and temps fairly quickly.

    What do you think?

      It works very well, by myself, I can take pressures and temps in about 1 minute. Then I go back and look at the numbers. For each set of readings it has you take the surface temp measurement also.
      Prior to going out, you take cold pressures & temps plus the surface temp. After your run, you take the same measurements. Later, comparing the readings it shows you the difference between the before and after.
      It can be calibrated, and you can set up the order of the readings ( I go; pressure, inside, center, outside starting at the LF and go counter clockwise)

      They offer a communication adaptor so the data can be transferred to a laptop for analysis, I passed on that option for now.
      all in all, it works well for me when I am solo.

          Well, the Alfano Tyre Pressure/Temp chingadero arrived today.... DOA. It would power on and 80% of the segments were randomly illuminated and it wouldn't respond to any input. No master reset. Pulled batteries and re-installed, no difference. Put in new batteries, no difference. Called re-seller and no help... and no more in stock. Guess I'll have to get temps and pressures with two different devices - how inconvenient! lol

            That's a bummer that is was doa. We need someone else to get it better than 50/50.
            It is really nice to jump out the car, quickly press a few buttons and take the measurements, get out of your gear. Then look at the readings.

              A year later, and I still love it.

                I didn't see this post the first time. That's a pretty trick setup.

                  A bit of a disconnect here. All of your posts from years ago said the thing didn't work, DOA and you were disappointed. Then, magically a year later you love it. What was the experience with the company and how did they fix it? Did you deal with the company direct in Italy or us distributor?

                      Mine's the one that was DOA. I DID receive a replacement and that one works well. Honestly it got put in the bottom drawer and forgotten, but I "re-discovered" it a couple of weeks ago at Buttonwillow. Looks like there is a bit of a learning curve but we plan to be using it for the 2020 season as we start to get a little more systematic with our car set-up.
