Crankshaft Position Sensor (Engine Speed Sensor) and Cylinder Recognition Sensor {TDC (G) Sensor}

without comments

Crankshaft Position Sensor (Engine Speed Sensor)
• The crankshaft position sensor is installed near the crankshaft timing gear or the flywheel. The sensor unit is a MPU (magnetic pickup) type. When the engine speed pulsar gear installed on the crankshaft passes the sensor section, the magnetic field of the coil within the sensor changes, generating AC voltage. This AC voltage is detected by the engine ECU as the detection signal. The number of pulses for the engine speed pulsar depends on the specifications of the vehicle the sensor is mounted in.

Cylinder Recognition Sensor {TDC (G) Sensor}
• The cylinder recognition sensor is installed on the supply pump unit for the HP0 system, but for the HP2, HP3, or HP4 system, it is installed near the supply pump timing gear. Sensor unit construction consists of the MPU type, which is the same as for the crankshaft position sensor, and the MRE (magnetic resistance element) type. For the MRE type, when the pulsar passes the sensor, the magnetic resistance changes and the voltage passing through the sensor changes. This change in voltage is amplified by the internal IC circuit and output to the engine ECU. The number of pulses for the TDC pulsar depends on the specifications of the vehicle the sensor is mounted in.
