BERWYN, Pa., April 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensor solutions, will share new insights on how sensors enable advanced onboard engine diagnostics in real-time at the SAE World Congress Experience (WCX) 2017.

In addition, product experts from TE and JAQUET, now a part of TE Connectivity, will be at booth #2213 to discuss the latest sensor technologies available in engine performance. Included at the booth will be the latest active eddy current-based sensor for turbocharger speed measurement. The active eddy current technology enables the sensor to measure the whole speed range required for OBD data, also at very low speeds.

Engineers from TE will lead the following sessions at SAE WCX 2017:
  • Wednesday, April 5 th, 8:00 am: Diesel Exhaust Gas After Treatment OBD Sensor IntegrationRoom 354: Sensors and Actuators (Session code: AE302)Presenter: Jean Milpied, head of TE's R&D team in the humidity/fluid engineering group
  • Thursday, April 6 th, 3:30 pm: Utilization of Turbocharger Speed Data to Increase Engine Power and Improve Air Path Control Strategy and DiagnosticsRoom 414 B: Powertrain Actuators and Sensors (Session code: PFL560) Presenter: Jonathan Tigelaar, Platform Manager, TE Connectivity(Co-authors Krista Jaquet, David Cox, Albert Peter, TE Connectivity/ JAQUET AG)

"Sensors have enabled turbochargers to move beyond monitoring speed for power efficiency to providing vital insights in the enhanced diagnostics in both diesel and gas engines," said Tigelaar. "The data available onboard can now help to improve engine control, optimize emissions and increase reliability in real time."

Urea quality sensors, used to monitor the quality and concentration of urea used to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in engines, will also be on display at the booth along with new tools that facilitate the safe integration of these and other OBD sensors into engine after-treatment systems. Tools include hardware in the loop (HIL) validation and vehicle system simulation.
