Knock Sensors

Knock Sensors prevents from a harmful spontaneous ignition resulting in the knocking effect.

Theacyclic uncontrolled combustions results in a high temperature inside the cylinder. This phenomenon causes that, engine parts like pistons, valves or the
cylinder head, are subjected to high stress.

The Knock Sensor is located on the engine block so that records the pinging caused by the knocking effect and transforms it into an electrical signal. The control
unit checks the signal with the values stored specification and intervene to control the engine, the fuel injection and the ignition to the extent necessary, before
the fuel reaches the knock limit.
