Electronics for the Exhaust System
Trust In Competence –
Sensors and Power Electronics for the Exhaust System
We have been partners of European premium manufacturers for many years. Our experts have been involved in the development process and exchange of experience on the subject of emissions after-treatment since discussions began on fuel consumption and cutting emissions.
Being involved from the start means knowing the stages of Euro 4 and Euro 5 as well as Tier4i and f and the associated enhanced requirements, optimisation potential and finally also the solutions in detail. Today we are contributing this experience to the Euro 6 projects and together with our customers, designing reliable, sturdy solutions for the next generation of environmentally friendly exhaust systems.
Conditions in the exhaust system and up- and downstream systems are demanding, since many sensors have to function directly in the exhaust gas flow. High temperatures and aggressive air particles cannot be allowed to influence either reliability or service life, nor may the screening required restrict the reaction times. The better known these requirements and their integration in the product development process, the better customised development can be realised.
The field of exhaust after-treatment is one of our core competences. Apart from the product information on our homepage, we provide information in the context of presentations, specialist conferences and as part of our press work. We have put together a range of useful information and links for you on these pages. Feel free to find out all you need here. We would be pleased to receive your questions and suggestions.
Find out more about Pressure and Temperature recording in the Exhaust System
A multitude of processes is based on the recording of pressure and temperature values in the exhaust system. The solutions from KYOCERA AVX were especially developed for this use and are capable supplying the control unit with the signals needed quickly and precisely even under very aggressive ambient conditions.
Many years of experience and continuous optimisation of our portfolio have created significant advantages for each customer application. Here some examples:
Pressure and Quality Monitoring of AdBlue® in the SCR System
Since the introduction of the Euro 5 standard, the NOx content of exhaust gases in powerful diesel engines has been reduced. This is achieved by the metered supply of urea, the so called AdBlue®, into the exhaust gas stream.
AdBlue® is kept available as medium in a separate container and added to the SCR system. Compliance with the statutory regulations in force is decisive for the flawless quality of this substance, which by law requires permanent electronic monitoring. In addition, improper filling or dilution of the liquid can damage the downstream systems. The freezing point of AdBlue® presents another challenge, since from -11 °C it becomes solid. Depending on the design of the SCR system, correspondingly sturdy pressure sensors are used.
KYOCERA AVX´ solutions have been developed especially for this use. Many years of experience and continuous optimisation of our portfolio have created significant advantages for each customer application. Here some examples:
