Customized sensors for powertrain

  • 03-Dec-2009 02:31 EST

BERU supplies sensor solutions for powertrains and exhaust systems, including temperature, motion, and smart sensors with intelligent electronics. Designed to exacting tolerances, these ultraprecise sensors provide customized measurements to reduce emissions and optimize engine performance. BERU’s high-temperature sensors (HTS) are used with turbochargers, diesel particle filters, and a number of catalytic emissions filter systems. HTS sensors detect the loading rate of particle filters, constantly providing data to the engine control unit (ECU) to calculate when to start the regeneration process. When the HTS sensor detects high temperatures of over 1700°F (926°C), the ECU ends the regeneration process to reduce temperatures and protect turbocharger blades from damage. With a platinum sensor element, the HTS sensor achieves a measurement range of 104 to 1742° F (40 to 950°C).
