Sensors for Small Engine Vehicle Applications

CTS sensors for small engine vehicle applications are specially designed for small, confined spaces. But don’t let their compact size mislead. These components are built tough and reliable, just as our full-size component line. At CTS, we understand that small vehicles work hard and play hard, so our sensors are built tough to keep up with the demands of ATVs, snowmobiles, motorcycles and small implements. Whether you’re out on the trail or cruising cross-country, rest assured that your CTS sensor will get you out there and bring you home.
