.:Sensata Technologies offers pressure sensing solutions for gasoline direct injection system:.

September 25th , 2007

As the automotive market continues to see the expansion of gasoline direct injection systems to boost fuel economy and improve engine efficiency, Sensata Technologies is increasing its penetration into the automotive sensor market with its gasoline direct injection (GDI) system sensor.

Sensata Technologies has introduced a new gasoline direct injection sensor which, when used with direct fuel injections systems, can improve fuel economy 4 to 8 percent, or even higher. These new fuel injection systems create air and fuel mixtures in the combustion chamber rather than at the fuel intake valve. Regulating the amount of highly pressurised fuel within the combustion chamber requires the high precision and robust sensing available with Sensata Technologies gasoline direct injection sensor.

This sensor employs advanced monocrystalline silicon MEMS strain gage technology (MSG), to enable an efficient air/fuel mixture over a range of gasoline and diesel fuels and across a wide temperature range. This advanced sensor design is ideally suited for sophisticated fuel delivery systems. Depending upon the systems final configuration, the operating pressure can reach up to 300bar.

"Gasoline direct fuel injection systems are increasingly becoming the norm in global automotive markets, "said Kari Caesar, marketing manager for Sensata's Fuel Systems Group. "Our GDI sensor is delivering a new level of precision sensing for this market that will continue to support the fuel economy and performance goals of our customers."
