DEP launches new sensor for IC engines

Chennai: Detroit Engineered Products (DEP) has launched their latest product – an advanced IC sensor, that the firm claims can help improve the efficiency and reduce emission of internal combustion engines.

These IC sensors can be used in real-time applications, functioning as a timing sensor, combustion sensor, performance sensor, emissions sensor and pressure sensor, delivering accurate and reliable results on a cylinder-to-cylinder, and a cycle-by-cycle basis, said a release from the firm that specialises in engine design and development capabilities,

These sensors are most suitable for on-board engine diagnostics, can predict combustion, performance and engine out emissions, and are superior to pressure transducers. They can easily be retro fitted in existing electronically controlled gasoline and diesel engines, by adapting the fuel injector or spark plug or glow plug as the sensor, without the need to drill another hole in the cylinder head, added the release.

President, DEP, Radha Krishnan, said, “There is a lot of pressure on vehicle manufacturers as combustion engines are required to meet stringent emissions standards in addition to targets for fuel economy and performance. The IC sensor is the next generation of sensors for the next generation of smarter vehicles. We are very excited here at DEP, as this technology can help conventional as well as advanced engines.”
