Throttle Position Sensors
In many applications, the ECM needs to know the position of other components. The throttle position sensor (TPS) sends an electrical signal to the ECM indicating the angle of the throttle valve; this helps the ECM calculate proper air-fuel ratio.
For contacting sensors, a wiper arm inside the sensor is mechanically connected to a moving part which is also in contact with a resistor. As the wiper moves on the resistor, the signal output changes. The closer it gets to the VC voltage, the higher the signal output. CTS’ 525 series contacting TPS sensors features a low cost, robust design that benefits from CTS’ patented technology and has a small hermetically sealed package that eliminates the potential for moisture or debris penetration. With a temperature range of -40° to 150°C, our throttle position sensor is ideally suited for under-hood applications.
For more demanding environments, the extremely compact 583 series rotary position sensor provides a very robust solution that performs accurately up to 160°C, in applications that can require up to 360° of rotational movement. Utilizing the latest non-contacting hall technology, the electronics are sealed from the environment in which it operates, making it ideal for light vehicle and commercial vehicle applications. The 583 series technology is now the basis of a new range of CTS sensors, and the technology of choice for transmission and variable valve timing / lift applications.
