The new catalog of sensors for managing the Bosch engine was presented, which shows the entire portfolio of the brand for the replacement of these components in 2022
The 2022 catalog of sensors for Bosch engine management was presented, which provides information on the extensive portfolio of the German specialist in this area, with all solutions for light and commercial vehicles. Today, modern cars in the compact class can be equipped with more than 50 individual sensors and integrated sensor systems, most of which are used for engine management. Bosch’s goal is to be the workshop solution for repairs on these components.
With more than 40 years of experience in the field of sensor development and manufacture, Bosch highlights the presence in this catalog of a wide spectrum of solutions. And, from a range of components in which it responds to the needs of workshops, it highlights components such as lambda sensors, air mass meters, EGR valves, rotational speed sensors, pressure sensors, among other automotive components.
Wide range of Bosch sensors featured in the catalog
One of the highlights of the new support presented is a technology introduced to the market by the German aftermarket giant, the lambda sensor. It measures the oxygen content in the exhaust gases, checking that the air-fuel mixture is correct. with Bosch remembering that in older models it is fitted in front of the catalytic converter, while in the most modern two sensors are used (one in front and one behind the catalytic converter). Bosch recommends checking this sensor every 30,000 kilometers in order to comply with exhaust gas and technical inspection standards (CUBA). Additionally, overhaul is also recommended to avoid possible catalytic converter damage, as a faulty sensor will increase fuel consumption.
The air mass meters presented in the catalog are another component placed in a prominent place by Bosch, which highlights characteristics such as original equipment quality and high reliability. Regarding EGR valves, the new Bosch engine management sensor catalog contains information on the specifications of this component and advice for workshops. For example, if the EGR valve is open, it can cause a vacuum leak that will lead to inefficient combustion, engine idling noise, excessive vibration, and even complete engine damage in extreme cases.
Pressure sensors and other sensors in the Bosch 2022 Engine Management Sensor Catalog
Crankshaft rotation speed sensors and camshaft sensors are part of the portfolio launched by Bosch, presenting details on their operation, namely on how they control injection/ignition times. In the pressure sensors, information about various components is highlighted:
– air inlet pressure sensorwhich allows the measurement of atmospheric pressure in the inlet pipe, detection of fuel leaks and monitoring of the oil and air inlet person;
– High pressure sensor which controls the fuel pressure inside the fuel rail in direct injection engines (gasoline and diesel);
– Oil pressure sensorwhich allows the measurement of fuel and oil pressure in all types of combustion engines and gears;
– Differential pressure sensorwhich controls the pressure difference of the particulate filter.
In the catalog of sensors for managing the Bosch 2022 engine, other sensors such as throttle, detonation and temperature are highlighted.
