Camshaft / Crankshaft Position Sensors
- DENSO MRE sensors have a pair of MREs on an Integrated Circuit (IC) chip – this unique design is extremely accurate, even just after an engine is started.
- The molded IC chip is installed inside a cylindrical magnet so it is positioned closer to the gears that rotate with the cam or crankshaft – this design is almost 10 times more sensitive than Hall element type sensors.
- DENSO uses a Polyphenylene Sulfide resin coating over the molded IC chip and cylindrical magnet for greater strength and superior resistance to substances like fuel, engine oil and emission byproducts.
Accurate Monitoring Equals Superior Ignition System Timing
Camshaft and Crankshaft Position Sensors detect camshaft and crankshaft rotation during one engine-combustion cycle. DENSO produces both Magnetic Resistant Element (MRE) type and Magnetic Pick-Up (MPU) type sensors.
