Sensor and it types

        A sensor (also called detector) is a converter that measures a physical quantity and converts it into a signal which can be read by an observer or by an (today mostly electronic) instrument.
        It operates based on the vibration produced by viscometer.

  • Defect detector, used on railroads to detect axle and signal problems in passing trains
  • Engine coolant temperature sensor, or ECT sensor, used to measure the engine temperature
  • Hall effect sensor, used to time the speed of wheels and shafts
  • MAP sensor, Manifold Absolute Pressure, used in regulating fuel metering.
  • Mass flow sensor, or mass airflow (MAF) sensor, used to tell the ECU the mass of air entering the engine
  • Oxygen sensor, used to monitor the amount of oxygen in the exhaust
  • Parking sensors, used to alert the driver of unseen obstacles during parking manoeuvres
  • Radar gun, used to detect the speed of other objects
  • Speedometer, used measure the instantaneous speed of a land vehicle
  • Speed sensor, used to detect the speed of an object
  • Throttle position sensor, used to monitor the position of the throttle in an internal combustion engine
  • Tire-pressure monitoring sensor, used to monitor the air pressure inside the tires
  • Torque sensor, or torque transducer or torquemeter measures torque (twisting force) on a rotating system.
  • Transmission fluid temperature sensor, used to measure the temperature of the transmission fluid
  • Turbine speed sensor (TSS), or input speed sensor (ISS), used to measure the rotational speed of the input shaft or torque converter
  • Variable reluctance sensor, used to measure position and speed of moving metal components
  • Vehicle speed sensor (VSS), used to measure the speed of the vehicle
  • Water sensor or water-in-fuel sensor, used to indicate the presence of water in fuel
  • Wheel speed sensor, used for reading the speed of a vehicle's wheel rotation

  • Hardwork can never ever fails...

    Best luck..
