The company has experienced strong sales growth for its OE quality aftermarket oxygen and air/fuel sensors
Used in many of today’s more advanced vehicles, Denso says it has been a leader in the field of Oxygen Sensor design since the technology became widely adopted by vehicle manufacturers in the mid-1990s.
“Through our industry reputation for reliability and quality, we have become one of the largest OE suppliers of these parts worldwide,” Denso Australia Manager Aftermarket Sales, Con Stogiannou, said.
“Our aftermarket sensors are manufactured to the same high standards of its OE range. They incorporate a unique aluminium oxide double trap layer around the sensor’s ceramic element which helps protect them from contaminated fuel – one of the most common causes of premature sensor failure.
“This feature helps our sensors maintain their lifespan and performance, and make them sought after in the vehicle repair marketplace.”
Oxygen Sensors (O2) work together with the vehicle’s fuel injection system, Catalytic Converter and engine management system or electronic control unit (ECU) to help achieve the lowest possible output of environmentally harmful engine emissions.
“Our sensors offer superior design which maximises engine performance and fuel efficiency while reducing fuel consumption and harmful emissions,” Con said.
“Our range delivers wide coverage and unique applications for Asian and European cars with original equipment quality and reliability.”
The mass air flow sensor measures the amount of air volume flowing into a car’s engine and sends the electronic control unit (ECU) a voltage that represents the airflow.
“Our improved air flow meter features a new sensing element bypass structure, which significantly reduces contamination of the sensing element for more accurate detection,” Con said.
“Our plug-in type sensors allow for easy installation, while being smaller, lighter and easier to mount; and its platinum wire sensing element responds quickly to changes in air flow.”
Denso explains that its space-saving ignition coil design has been adopted by many of the world’s leading automakers, requiring no high-tension ignition cable whilst fitting neatly into the engine’s spark plug bore.
“Our improved coil efficiency reduces the need to generate high voltage. The driving circuit is integrated into the top of the coil and as the coils are small in size, they are light in weight and easy to install,” Con said.
Denso is continually expanding its engine management range and has recently released a YouTube video on the topic of Oxygen v O2 Sensors. To see this video, visit to the Denso Australia YouTube Channel.
