VOLT CAM CRANK SENSORS
The range of VOLT Camshaft and Crankshaft Sensors includes over 520 parts. This covers in excess of 11,800 applications for over 43 million vehicles on the road. They are also known as Engine Speed Sensors
Manufactured to the highest standards and 100% tested to ensure operation within the manufacturer’s original parameters. Volt then seal parts into magnetically shielded bags for complete protection.
A no-quibble warranty covers all Camshaft and Crankshaft Sensors for complete peace of mind although this will depend on the chosen brand.
VOLT Camshaft and Crankshaft Sensors feature QR codes on the box label and these provide a quick link to product specific fitting and technical advice before opening the box.
WHAT ARE CAMSHAFT AND CRANKSHAFT SENSORS?
The Camshaft Sensor monitors the positions of the camshaft for correct ignition timing. The Crankshaft Sensor detects the position of the crankshaft. This allows the ECU to calculate its position in relation to the pistons in the engine. There are two main types of sensor:
Inductive sensors use a magnet and coil to detect the teeth of the gear. As they pass, the magnetic field changes and the coil voltage is induced. This is output as a waveform signal (~AC)
HALL EFFECT SENSOR
Hall effect sensors do not use a coil and instead of an analogue AC signal they create a digital signal. Either on or off, as the teeth pass the sensor.This can be seen in the diagram below.
VEHICLE PERFORMANCE GUARANTEE
VOLT branded component testing ensures operation within the manufacturer’s original parameters. This guarantees no change to the vehicles original performance.
OE MATCHING PERFORMANCE
VOLT components deliver original equipment matching performance. Sensible pricing and extra support services add value to the VOLT Range.
