The conventional speedometer is replaced by a speed sensor. It rotates while being plugged into an electrical connector that can send a signal to a computer. In this manner, the sensor offers data for calculating your car’s speed. It also displays whether you need to change the transmission speed or shift levels.
The vehicle automotive speed sensor gauges either wheel speed or transmission/transaxle output. This data is used by the ECM to change engine parameters like ignition timing, air/fuel ratio, transmission shift points, and to start up diagnostic procedures.
The speed sensor operates on the variable reluctance magnetic sensing principle, which creates a magnetic field (flux) that overlaps the rotating exciter ring using a cylindrical permanent magnetic core with a coil wire wound around it mounted on the stationary hub carrier, axle casing, or back plate.
The global Automotive Speed Sensor market accounted for $XX Billion in 2023 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2024 to 2030.
At the Automotive Testing Expo Europe, which will be hosted at Messe Stuttgart in Germany, Accurate Technologies Inc. (ATI), the top independent global provider of measurement, calibration, and diagnostics software and hardware products, will introduce the new PICOTURN PTCM.
The third generation of the well-established, market-leading turbocharger speed sensor portfolio from PICOTURN is one of the important specialist third-party products that ATI is the primary distributor for. New design elements requested by the world-wide customer base of PICOTURN are now included in the most recent version of the PTCM.
The most notable update is the addition of a small, IP67-rated container that makes it simple for test and development vehicles to put it in the engine compartment. The PICOTURN solution is a tried-and-true replacement for traditional optical or magnetic sensing systems that is tough, dependable, easy to use, accurate, and reasonably priced.
Due to the high sensitivity of the PICOTURN system, there can be a significant distance between the sensor and the rotating vanes thickness. The PTCM can measure compressor wheel speed at a low operating speed while providing unmatched accuracy over a broad operating range.
