AV-S 自動車センサーの装置



The Automotive Sensors Unit,"AV-S", has been designed by EDIBON to study the electronics componets and sensors used in the automotive.




The Automotive Sensors Unit, "AV-S", provides a practical solution to familiarize the students with the sensors used in modern automotive systems.

The Automotive Sensors Unit, "AV-S", is composed of real sensors and components used in current automotive systems. The "AV-S" unit is provided with a different set of practical exercises, through which the student will understand how the sensors of the automotive field work.

The sensors included in the "AV-S" are focused on the measurements required for the engine management system, being the mass air flow sensor, the Lambda sensor, different temperature sensor, oil pressure sensor, accelerator pedal position sensor, etc. but there are also other sensors for the stability system, the parking system, the lighting system and the safety system.

All sensor circuits included in the unit are isolated to understand the function of the circuits separately. All connector points of the sensors circuits are accessible through 2 mm standard lab sockets.

The "AV-S" can work alone, but some sensors can also be connected to the Automotive Electronic Control Device Unit, "AV-ECD", to send real sensors measurements to an electronic control unit.

The sensors of the "AV-S" unit are communicated through digital signals, analog signals, PWM signals and the network protocols CAN bus and LIN bus.
