CTS position sensor selected for heavy-truck diesels

  • 11-Feb-2009 12:03 EST

CTS Automotive Products has been awarded a production program with a new customer for its new noncontacting rotary position sensor. Designed for use on exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve systems for diesel engines in North American commercial heavy-duty trucks, the sensors feature new technology in a leak-proof design made specifically for high-temperature and harsh-environment applications. Total sales from the awards are expected to reach about $8 million over the initial five years of the program, with production beginning this year at one of CTS’ North American facilities.
