Sensor Types


00:00 - We group sensors by the type of signal they output, as this determines which type of input they need to be wired to in the ECU.
00:07 The common groups are, engine position and speed, analog voltage, analog temperature, digital signal, knock, and wideband oxygen sensors.
00:18 Depending on the specification of your ECU, it may not be able to interface directly with every type of sensor, and might need a controller unit that converts the output of the sensor into a form the ECU can accept.
00:30 Your ECU's documentation will outline its sensor input capabilities and you will want to ensure you have read this section thoroughly before designing your wiring harness to ensure everything will be compatible.
