Global player for commercial-vehicle-applications

Robust technologies and global footprint 
The enormous diversity of transport requirements for commercial vehicles calls for a wide range of sensor solutions of the highest quality and robust design. Partnering with most of the Premium OEM in the truck market we can offer a comprehensive portfolio of customized solutions.

Exhaust gas after-treatment

Since the EURO 4 standard, AB Elektronik has been an accredited partner of truck manufacturers for development and production of sophisticated sensor solutions for exhaust gas applications.
To complement our existing technologies for exhaust gas monitoring we are on course to meet the requirements of Euro 6 and Tier 4i and f emissions.
The functional diversity of gas sensors from AB Elektronik now offers practical, economical and powerful complete solution from a single source.

For future applications, the nitrogen oxides (NO,NO2=NOx) generated in the engine during combustion have to be eliminated actively.
In the so-called selective catalytic reduction (SCR), an aqueous urea solution (32.5% NH3) is injected into the hot diesel exhaust.
The result is non-hazardous N2 and H2O. For requirements-based metering of the solution, exact detection of pressure and temperature is necessary.
For this pressure sensor, the AB experts selected a specially capsuled measuring cell which in a compressed-air-free system guarantees that there is no freezing, as this area in case of sub-zero temperatures is exposed to outside temperature due to mostly little insulation.
For optimum control of a number of additional functions in exhaust gas after-treatment, AB Elektronik possesses innovative products and a high overall expertise in this special field.

Pressure sensors

Last generation pressure sensors are absolutely solid and have excellent long-live characteristics. They win by their modular-building-concept and can be integrated into customer systems easily

AB Elektronik offers a great number of innovative and robust solutions for measuring pressure in different media.
Due to flexible configurations, our pressure sensor modules can easily be integrated into customer-specific systems.
Particularly powerful engines in trucks, work machines, and agricultural vehicles require permanent monitoring in different media.
A great variety of different basic technologies enables us to optimally suit sensor features to the respective customer application.

Position sensors

A wide range of technology know-how enables position-detection for versatile applications

AB Elektronik has been a development partner and a supplier of position sensors since 1990.
The second product generation is already available for Hall sensors.
With a large portfolio of patents, AB Elektronik is a well-known supplier for large-volume production for car and truck applications.
We also have medium- and small-volume production for special-purpose vehicles.

Agricultural applications include various drive demand applications, such as joystick control or pedals, as well as sensors for mobile applications, such as hitch positions.

Electronic pedals

Take your choice: Electronic pedals with integrated position-detection as well as plugged sensor solution – depending on your application

Position sensors for pedal applications are used e.g. for clutch or brake pedals.
The possibility of adapting these sensors to existing systems and adjusting them to the  respective application through customised programming renders this solution attractive also for low-volume  applications.
All pedals and sensor solutions for pedal systems are based on non-contacting technology.
Different designs in suspended and floor-mounted applications enable optimum customising of installation space.

Speed sensors

Our engineers understand optimal control means: Higher efficiency, low emissions and an increase in driving pleasure

In order to handle resources in a responsible way and to protect the environment, it is necessary to measure precisely, even at a low rotational speed, immediately when the engine of a vehicle has been started.  
Detecting rotational speeds without loss enables optimal engine control resulting in improved driving characteristics and low emissions.

AB Elektronik develops standard concept for urea sensor

Since Euro standards have been regulating the pollutant emissions of modern engines and exhaust systems, automobile manufacturers and system partners have relied on sensors from AB Elektronik.
The measurement of urea quality is the third product column for exhaust gas sensor technology – alongside temperature and pressure measurement – with which the experts from Klingenberg, near Dresden, are finding success in global markets.

After consistent development of their optical urea concentration sensor, AB Elektronik has introduced standardization as a modular system, which opens up clear advantages over complex systems with ultrasonic units and other measuring methods. The optical measuring method allows a very compact sensor design, which proves to be extremely robust in demanding environmental conditions. The compactness allows for versatile use in different mounting systems, both in or at the urea tank, as well as in the supply line.

Frank Rothe, Product Manager for this product group, puts the increasing demand in the automotive sector down to the need for permanent measurement of the urea content in the fuel additive known as AdBlue. This is used to eliminate nitrogen oxides in diesel vehicles, and in modern automobiles, continuous measurement of its quality is now mandatory. If the concentration does not comply with the specifications, or if the level in the tank can no longer be measured, the driver receives various warnings until the vehicle finally switches to emergency mode. The sensor is also used for similar functions in tanks and industrial plants.

“We see a wide variety of requirements regarding the installation space, and the interfaces for measuring urea content”, says Mr Rothe. “Not every requirement can be supported with a completely new design if the required quantity is small. This has led to our development of a modular standard, which we will offer in the future with a partner, among other things as a complete tank sensor unit. As a competent partner in the field of exhaust gas sensor technology, we are convinced that this step will help our customers to optimize their systems.” Frank Rothe continues: “Development of the technology is in the hands of our European competence centre; production and local design adaptation takes place in our international locations.”
