Temperature Sensors

Temperature Sensors of the vehicle are components that play an important role in controlling emissions and fuel consumption. Together with other sensors, the reading makes the ECU parameterize the conditions of the injection system. 

There are different types of sensors within the wide range of FAE which can be divided as follows: 


  1. Refrigerant Temperature Sensors 

    Its function is to measure the temperature of the engine refrigerant. 
    These sensors are mounted through the cooling circuit and its reading is sent directly to the control unit.
    The operating temperature range is from -40ºC to +130ºC.


  2. Intake Air Temperature Sensors 

    This sensor mounted on the inlet section records the temperature of intake air with which it is possible to calculate, in combination with a boost pressure sensor, air mass aspirated. Moreover theoretical values can be adapted for regulatory circuits (eg exhaust gas feedback, regulating the boost pressure) to air temperature.
    The operating temperature range is from -40ºC to +120ºC.


  3. Outdoor Temperature Sensors 

    Its function is to read the outside temperature of the vehicle. Like the other temperature sensors, the reading is sent to the control unit, where together with the reading of other sensors injection is managed.
