Robust Three-Axis Sensor In Engine Compartment

Robust Three-Axis Sensor In Engine Compartment
The new Bosch SMI650 combined inertial sensor is designed to cope with the harsh environment found in a car’s engine compartment. It can withstand operating temperatures of up to +140 °C and is able to deal with even strong broadband vibrations thanks to a special vibration damper. This is the first time that an electronic control unit for the ESP electronic stability program has featured a sensor with integrated vibration damper. ESP electronic control units with integrated inertial sensors have no need for complicated wiring to connect to external sensors. A biaxial acceleration sensor (ay and az) and a monoaxial yaw sensor (Ox) together give the SMI650 fully fledged ESP senses for monitoring a vehicle’s three axes of motion. The first series-production version of the new combined inertial sensor will be incorporated in Bosch’s current generation 9 ESP electronic control units.
