Exhaust Temperature Sensor (EGTS)
Exhaust Gas Temperature Sensors monitor selective catalytic reduction (SCR), turbo boost, exhaust gas recirculation and the diesel particulate filter (DPF.) The data from the Air Mass Meter (AMM) and the Exhaust Temperature Sensors prompt the ECU to regenerate the DPF in order to prevent and clear blockages, as well as monitoring temperature levels during regeneration. The ELTA range consists of over 100 part numbers for over 1200 applications.
Thin Film Platinum sensors are proven technology for exhaust gas temperature sensors. The element works on a positive temperature coefficient, so the sensor’s resistance increases as the exhaust temperature increases. The EGTS measures exhaust temperatures up to 900°C.
