Sensors & Switches
Sensors and Switches within heavy duty vehicles, trucks and buses are typically inexpensive components however their function and importance far exceeds their cost.
Defective sensors can deny operators, drivers and maintenance staff the visibility that is needed to manage the vehicle performance. Without visibility of engine factors such as pressure, temperature and braking; buses could be putting their passengers at risk, and trucks could be putting their cargo and drivers at risk too. We have vast experience in working with original equipment manufacturers who specialise the design and manufacture of sensors and switches.
What type of Sensors & Switches we supply?
Working with leading partners, we can supply you with the full range of sensor and switch components including:
Plus much more.
When should you replace your Switches & Sensors?
Waiting for switches and sensors to become defective before replacing them can be detrimental to the other functions of your vehicle. Therefore it is key to check and where necessary replace switches and sensors regularly as part of your standard vehicle maintenance schedule.
Making basic checks on your sensors and switches through the application of a voltmeter will give you an overview of whether the basic function of the component is existing. It becomes more complex to qualify the accuracy and reliability of sensors and switches, and therefore we recommend replacing the components regularly after sustained periods of performance, wear and tear.
Some of the critical indicators that your Sensors and Switches might be beginning to fail are:
Reduced Fuel Economy
Warning lights illuminated on the Dashboard
Engine appears to be overheating without management system advice
Voltmeter or Scan Tool shows no output on testing
We can assist you with your Sensor and Switch needs through our network of highly reputable manufacturers and our extensive experience in supporting fleets of buses, trucks and heavy-duty vehicles.
