Powertrain Temperature Sensors

Powertrain temperature sensors integrated circuits and designs

Description

Engine management sensors monitor various engine functions to help decrease emissions, increase fuel economy and boost engine efficiency. Sensors include:

  • Pressure – MAP, BAP, emission control (particulate filter pressure), OWS and tire pressure
  • Fluid Concentration / Quality – measures make up and quality of fluids like fuel, oil and adblue
  • Position – measures location of valve flaps, camshafts, crankshafts, and even fluid level. Can be angular, rotary, or linear measurements
  • Temperature – measures temperature of air, liquid, exhaust gas for under/over temp detection, thermal loop control, or temp drift compensation
  • Exhaust – Different types of sensors that measure exhaust by products including soot / particulate matter, NOx, lambda/oxygen, ammonia
  • Knock – Detects engine knock (detonation) which occurs when combustion of air/fuel in cylinder happens without spark plug
  • Mass Air Flow – Measures mass flow rate of air entering fuel injected internal combustion engine
  • Technical documents
