Temperature sensors provide a key parameter to the electronic module to enable feedback of the system’s current state of operation. The two systems of the vehicle that are primary users of temperature sensors are the engine/power-train management system and the HVAC system.
Additionally, many of the electronic modules require temperature compensation that is satisfied with a board-mounted thermistor. The engine/power-train management system uses a number of temperature inputs to enhance the performance of the engine, control emissions, and optimize efficiency. The most common applications are the:
· coolant temperature sensor
· intake air temperature sensor
· transmission oil temperature sensor
· cylinder head temperature sensor
In recent years we have introduced a great variety of new sensors and sensor systems to the automotive market and continuously develops innovative products to meet customers’ requirements.
RPD stand out for excellent measuring accuracy and long-term stability. Advanced technologies allow cost-efficient and large-scale production of reliable sensors. Thus, we are able to offer sensors over-molded with plastic or encapsulated in specific materials for reliable use in adverse environments for a large range of temperatures. They can be delivered in numerous shapes and with a wide variety of cable and connector geometries.
If standard types do not match the purpose – we can also supply application-specific sensors with customized parameters by the efforts of our R&D team.
