Techniques and applications
This catalog features the most importanttechnical data required for selecting a given sensor. To date, the sensors listed have all been used in automotive applications, but their universal and highly versatile characteristics also make them ideally suitable for industrial applications. For instance in:
q Manufacturing engineering q Mechanical engineering q Automation q Materials handling and conveying q Heating and air-conditioning qChemical and process engineering q Environmental and conservation technology q Installation and plant engineering Automotive application
Throttle-valve-angle measurement for engine management on gasoline (SI) engines. Wheel-speed measurement for ABS/TCS, engine speeds, positioning angle for engine management, measurement of steeringwheel angle, distance covered, and curves/bends for vehicle navigationsystems. Registration of vehicular acceleration and deceleration. Used for the Antilock Braking System (ABS) and the Traction Control System (TCS). For engine management, detection of vibration on rough/unpaved road surfaces.
Brief descriptions and examples of application are to be found in the Table below. For the applications listed below, prior clarification of the technical suitability isimperative. This Catalog only lists those products which are available from series manufacture. If your problem cannot be solved with this range of products, please inform of us of your requirements using the Enquiry Data Sheet. Examples of non-automotive applications
