Detroit Engineered Products (DEP), a US based company with specialised engine design and development capabilities, has recently launched advanced IC sensor to improve the efficiency and reduce emission of internal combustion engines.
These IC sensors can be used in real-time for 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.
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. The product folio consists of both hardware and software-the multi-sensor, a black box controller which processes the signal from the sensor, and a diagnostics kit which visualises the data & performs diagnostics.
Radha Krishnan, President, DEP said, “There is a lot of pressure on vehicle manufacturers as combustion engines are required to meet stringent emission 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.”
The in-cylinder combustion sensor enables performing multiple sensing tasks and real-time engine management by providing feedback to the electronic control of engine. The volume production system results in low initial and maintenance cost compared to pressure transducers. Remote monitoring and diagnostics are also possible which helps to reduce the cost of inspection and repair over the lifetime of the engine.
