Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor
The MAP sensor is used to convert the manifold pressure into an electrical signal for the ECU to use. The sensor works in absolute pressures, thus its calibration is not affected by changes in barometric pressure. The vacuum - and in the case of ...
Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) Sensor
A Manifold Pressure Sensor, commonly referred to as a MAP Sensor, is used to measure vacuum or boost in the inlet manifold, and is often used as the primary load input to the Elite ECU. A MAP Sensor is a powered sensor that typically has three ...
Inlet Air Temperature Sensor
The air temperature sensor is used to compensate for changes in air density due to air temperature. Cold air has a higher density than warm air and therefore requires a greater volume of fuel to maintain the same air/fuel ratio. This effect is most ...
Knock Sensor (Optional)
Knock sensors detect engine knock and sends a voltage signal to the ECU. The Elite Series ECU uses the knock sensor signal to modify ignition timing if knocking occurs. Knock Sensors can be connected to the knock input connections on the ECU.
Reluctor Sensor Types
Variable Reluctance Transducers (VRT or simply reluctor) – this kind of sensor produces a sine wave output. Generally a VRT sensor will have only 2 wires (a third wire may be present but its generally a shield wire to help protect the signal from ...
