The anti-lock braking system uses an ABS or wheel sensor to monitor the wheel speed and send this information to the ABS computer. The ABS computer uses this information to prevent the brakes from locking during a stop.
NAPA® Echlin® ABS sensor line has complete coverage for domestic and import applications with over 2100 ABS numbers cataloged – and growing.
OE connectors and terminals are used to ensure accurate, water-tight connection to the engine wire harness
Grommets and wire clips are included on the harness to ensure proper mounting and routing within the car chassis
Wire harness comes with protective sleeve to prevent wires from chafing and creating short circuits
Sensors are 100% tested for proper functioning
Sensor housing is made from high quality glass reinforced plastic resin with both high temperature and environmental protection resistance
We left no stone unturned; performing extensive laboratory and real life testing that included measuring and comparing shaft speed vs. delta voltage, output voltage and variation to OE, magnetic field strength, air gap, output wave form, pulse width as well as a complete physical product comparison to OE.
NAPA® Echlin®: ABS Sensor# 530581 (GM 02-95; ranked in the top 10 sellers) matches OE for output voltage, resistance, trigger wheel gap and all critical fit, form, and function measurables.
Competition: 29%-51% lower voltage output when compared to OE leading to potential ABS system failure. Incorrect mounting bracket does not match OE.
NAPA® Echlin®: ABS Sensor# 530916 (Ford 09-95; ranked in the top 10 sellers) matches OE for output voltage, resistance, trigger wheel gap and all critical fit, form, and function measurables.
Competition: 45%-74% lower voltage output when compared to OE leading to potential ABS system failure. Inconsistent winding resistance, electrical inductance and magnetic field orientation resulting in poor sensor performance. Inconsistent gap between sensor tip and trigger wheel leading to potential sensor tip damage.
