Air Temperature Sensor
A change in air temperature causes the air density to change and this affects the amount of fuel required for the correct air-fuel ratio. The Air Temperature Sensor monitors the air temperature and sends a signal back to the ECU.
Air Temperature Sensors are otherwise known as:
-Intake Air Temperature Sensors.
The Camshaft Sensor monitors the position of the camshaft to allow correct timing of ignition in the engine.
Camshaft Sensors are otherwise known as:
-Revolution and Timing Sensors
-Camshaft Angle Sensors
The Crankshaft Sensor detects the position of the crankshaft and allows the ECU to calculate its position relative to the pistons inside the engine.
Crankshaft Sensors are otherwise known as:
-Crankshaft Angle Sensors
-Engine Speed Sensors
-Revolution and Timing Sensors
-Engine Position Sensors
Coolant Temperature Sensor
The Coolant Temperature Sensor measures the temperature of engine coolant and ensures the engine does not overheat.
Coolant Temperature Sensors are otherwise known as:
-Engine Temperature Sensors
-Radiator Temperature Sensors
Normally mounted on the cylinder head or engine block, the Knock Sensor is used to detect air-fuel combustion outside of the normal ignition cycle. Knocking, or pinging, is not a result of pre-ignition but can be just as destructive to the engine. The sensor detects the vibrations caused by knocking, turning this into an electrical signal that can be picked up by the ECU.
The Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) Sensor is used to help the ECU determine the correct air-fuel ratio in vehicles not utilising an Air Mass Sensor. In recent times they have also been developed to measure the performance of the EGR Valve.
MAP Sensors are otherwise known as:
-Boost Pressure Sensors.
Malfunctioning ABS Sensors are one of the most common faults within the ABS system. Located next to each wheel, they are subject to constant heat, vibrations and the threat of dirt and moisture ingress - quality is therefore essential to ensuring longevity. Cambiare’s 100% BER compliant, ABS Sensor programme is produced in state of the art facilities, conforming to international manufacturing standards including TS16949 and ISO9001.
ABS Sensors are otherwise known as:
-Anti-Lock Braking System Sensors
-Wheel Speed Sensors
Cambiare’s OEM quality range of Lambda Sensors features the latest generation 5-wire wideband and air-fuel ratio sensors (otherwise known as lean burn sensors). Unlike earlier generation Lambda Sensors, wideband sensors produce a variable voltage based on the air-fuel ratio in the exhaust gas. In doing so they can measure the actual proportion of air and fuel in the exhaust gas rather than just reporting whether the mixture is too rich or too lean. This gives more sophisticated, faster and more accurate information on the combustion process, even down to really lean mixtures.
Lambda Sensors are otherwise known as:
Air Mass Sensor
The Air Mass Sensor is used to determine the air mass being delivered to the engine. This signal allows the ECU to adapt the fuel injection accordingly. In modern diesel applications the Air Mass Sensor is additionally needed to control and monitor the EGR flow rate. All Air Mass Sensors are 100% tested under the latest OE conditions.
Air Mass Sensors are otherwise known as:
-Air Flow Meters
-Air Flow Rate Meters
Exhaust Gas Pressure Sensors (EGPS)
Cambiare’s EGPS measures the exhaust gas pressure before and after the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). When the pressure exceeds set levels, filter regeneration will automatically occur, or a light on the dashboard will alert the driver that a garage visit is needed.
