Boost Pressure Sensor

Boost Pressure Sensor


The Boost Pressure Sensor function allows for monitoring of the boost pressure. This sensor is commonly used in turbocharged applications and is placed in the intercooler piping pre throttle body, or pre intercooler for pressure drop measurement. This sensor value can be used as a controlled parameter for Closed Loop Boost Control.



On this node, the Boost Pressure sensor calibration can be loaded or entered manually. If you have purchased a Pressure sensor from Haltech, calibrations can be loaded directly into the calibration table by using the 'Load from File' button. Calibrations can be saved to file by using the 'Save to File' button. 

Display



This node sets the display settings for the Boost Pressure channel. 
Warning Maximum - Sets the pressure at which the Boost Pressure sensor Number Displays, Gauges and Bars will enter their upper warning state
Display Minimum - Sets the pressure at which the Boost Pressure sensor Number Displays, Gauges and Bars will start.
Display Maximum - Sets the pressure at which the Boost Pressure sensor Number Displays, Gauges and Bars will end.

Diagnostics



This node allows the enabling of high and low voltage DTCs for the Boost Pressure sensor.
A DTC severity can be set for each voltage, which will trigger an Engine Protection level for the relevant setting.

Wiring



This node allows you to assign the input for the Boost Pressure sensor. 
Pressure Sensors use an Analog Input. Any available AVI can be used.
It is recommended to disable the Pull Up.
