Ignition specialist NGK Spark Plugs (UK) Ltd has released a new catalogue which features full details of the range and applications of 87 MAF sensors and 69 MAP sensors – which were launched last September – are featured in the 2018/2019 publication.
For maximum efficiency in engine operation and to ensure effective exhaust gas treatment, the engine control unit (ECU) needs to precisely regulate the air-fuel ratio.
NTK has been proving its excellence and know-how for decades as a leader in the production of original equipment (OE) Lambda sensors for vehicle manufacturers (VMs).
MAF and MAP sensors are essential elements in this process. Both provide the ECU with a signal needed to calculate the amount of air aspirated by the engine.
Mark Hallam, Marketing Manager, NGK Spark Plugs (UK) Ltd, said: “With the successful 2017 launch of MAF and MAP sensors, NTK Vehicle Electronics strengthened its position in the market. NTK has incorporated experience from more than 40 years in the sensor business into our MAF and MAP sensors’ offering to make it exactly what our customers need, and it has proven to be extremely popular.
“I’m sure the launch of our new printed catalogue will prove to be an invaluable aid to our customers and, in-turn, their garage customers.”
NGK Spark Plugs (UK) Ltd – a leading supplier of OE spark plugs and glow plugs, plus ignition coils, to the independent automotive aftermarket – says the experience it has in supplying the VMs worldwide allows it to offer exactly the right sensor for every vehicle application.
NGK is the world’s largest manufacturer of Lambda sensors and, as an OE supplier to many of the world’s leading VMs under the NTK brand, supplies the same components and other engine management sensors to the UK aftermarket.
NGK has a proven track-record in the supply of new engine management sensors. In 2014, it introduced a range of NTK exhaust gas temperature sensors (EGTS) to support the ever-increasing complexity of exhaust gas management technology.
