Car Sensors, Truck Sensors, Bus & Off-Road Sensors
We are committed to making vehicles safer, greener and more connected. To transport passengers safely and efficiently, vehicles need data. Our vehicle sensors can sense and respond to changing conditions, inside and out. TE's automotive sensors include sensors for cars, trucks, bus, and off-road. They help provide the data for control, adaptation and response of vehicle functions that increase safety, comfort, and efficiency. Our sensor technology is an integral part of many modern nervous systems in cars, trucks, buses and off-road vehicles. TE’s automotive sensors are designed and manufactured to exacting specifications, often on a custom basis.
Brake sensors are used in vehicle applications such as travel sensor for brake master cylinder position (optional redundancy), rotary sensor for brake pedal position detection (optional redundancy); contactless brake light switch and wheel speed sensor. Pressure sensors such as the vacuum brake booster sensor and brake line pressure used for ABS/ESC modules.
TE offers a wide range of chassis solutions for roof and convertible switches, actuator and cylinder position, seat position and weight classification. Our humidity and temperature sensors are used in HVAC systems to prevent wind screen fogging and for energy management.
Transmission & Clutch Sensors
Permanent-magnetic Linear Contactless Displacement (PLCD) sensors are designed for concentric slave cylinder and clutch slave cylinder, rotary sensors for clutch pedal position detection; contactless switch for clutch master cylinder and travel sensor for clutch master cylinder and Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT). Transmission sensors are used in vehicle applications such as all gear / neutral detection for manual transmission (MT) to support start and stop function, drive mode (travel or rotary) for automatic (AT), continuously variable (CVT), or dual clutch (DCT) transmissions. Pressure, speed, and temperature sensors are also designed to monitor and contol within transmission applications.
TE manufactures various sensor types for electric and hybrid-electric vehicles including single-coil resolvers, multi-coil resolvers, and current transducers. These technologies combine to increase the efficiency and reliability in electric vehicle applications.
Exhaust sensors are manufactured for urea quality, level and temperature, urea pump pressure and exhaust gas temperature (EGTS).
