THE IMPORTANCE OF SENSORS IN OHW VEHICLES AND SPECIAL MACHINERY
April 7, 2021
OHW vehicles and special machinery represent a very important group within the commercial vehicle sector. These vehicles are specially equipped to work out of the road. Therefore, it is essential for them to be perfectly protected in order to stand adverse weather conditions and work on uneven ground.
Normally, the workplace of these vehicles lies really far from urban areas, so a failure might lead to being disabled and without the possibility of reaching the nearest workshop quickly. For this reason, the parts comprising these vehicles must ensure high reliability and endurance.
Although these vehicles have been historically considered as purely mechanical work machinery, nowadays they have a considerable number of electrical and electronic components into their architecture, which have significantly improved their operation and performance. For instance, the engine management system, which is one of the most important systems within this type of vehicles, includes these components.
Besides, the camshaft speed sensors or the oil pressure sensors are in charge of enabling the engine to be in optimal performance conditions at any time. This way, preventive maintenance before potential failures is ensured.
In Cojali we have a range of electrical and electronic components particularly focused on this type of vehicles. Take a look at the following links:
