Camshaft Sensors

The camshaft sensor is located in the cylinder head and reads the camshaft sprocket to determine the position of the camshaft.

This information is required for functions such as initiating injection on sequential injection engines, the trigger signal for the magnet valve on pump valve injection systems and for cylinder-specific knock control.

Knock Sensors

Modern engines which allow high compression ratios have a distinct disadvantage: their design leads to increased knocking, which can damage the engine.

Knock sensors reliably measure the vibration of the engine block that is characteristic of engine knocking. This allows the firing angle and other parameters to be set such that the engine continues to function correctly close to the knock threshold. This not only protects the engine but also reduces fuel consumption.

To ensure maximum precision, our knock sensors deploy groundbreaking bandwidth technology.

Pressure Sensors

MAP and T-MAP sensors measure the air pressure in the intake manifold behind the throttle valve to determine air intake. This information is extremely important for calculating the amount of fuel to be injected to ensure the correct air fuel mix. For this reason, the dynamic measurement capability of these engine management components is crucial in reducing vehicle emissions.
  • MAP pressure sensor for turbocharged engines for measuring air pressure behind the turbocharger (measurement range 500–3000 hPa)
  • T-MAP pressure sensor with integrated temperature sensor

Wheel Speed Sensors

The wheel speed signal is crucial for electronic systems like ABS or ASC.


Eccentric Shaft Sensors

The VDO Sensors exactly control the adjusted angle of the eccentric shaft and report this value to the engine management.
