About Us

About Altalab Instrument

Since 1987 we have done our best to provide drag racers with quality weather instruments at reasonable prices. We listen to racers and our customers, and design drag race weather stations and software with your needs in mind. Because of our commitment to meeting the needs of our customers, all Altalab drag race weather stations have a 3 year warranty.

Anyone can build a weather station that performs well in the lab, where conditions are controlled and there are none of the difficulties of measuring in the field. We specialize in weather stations that perform well in the real world conditions of racing. We accomplish this goal with many strategies, including quality components, fan-aspiration, remote sensing, and other aspects of intelligent design. In our quest to provide our customers with winning tools, we pioneered many of the weather station features that are now industry standards:

  • run graphing for drag racers
  • fan aspiration for sensors
  • trailer based remote sensing
  • weather paging
  • digital technology in drag racing weather stations
