Accelerator Pedal Sensors
The Accelerator Pedal sensor indicates the position of the accelerator on vehicle models with electronic throttle control. The APS is basically a throttle position sensor (TPS) with a pedal attached. A Standard® Accelerator Pedal Sensors utilize drive-by-wire technology, consistently been first to market in this category and has the APS line to over 150 SKUs with an emphasis on the import applications. As a basic manufacturer, Standard® has complete control of the manufacturing process from componentry to finished product. Standard® pedal sensors maintain specific installed outputs to match OE rather than adjustable consolidated designs.
Each sensor undergoes rigorous end-of-line testing with thousands of data points to validate output voltages for optimum performance and trouble-free operation.Shop Now!
Anti-Lock (ABS) Sensors
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 an emergency stop. If wheel speeds are not equal the computer modulates the anti-lock feature until the speeds are equalized. The ABS sensor is typically located in each wheel hub/rotor on a four channel ABS system. Some rear wheel drive applications have the sensor mounted in the rear differential. A failing sensor can illuminate the vehicle warning light or ABS warning lamp, and may cause failure of the anti-lock braking system to operate safely and properly.
As a basic manufacturer, Standard® has complete control of the manufacturing process from componentry to finished product. The Standard® ABS sensor line has complete coverage for domestic and import applications.Shop Now!
Brake Pad Wear Sensors
The Brake Pad Wear sensor, or brake wear indicator, is an added safety feature on many vehicles used to warn a vehicle's driver if their brake pad's life becomes too low. Brake Pad Wear sensors are designed to "fail" as brake pads wear. They should be changed whenever the pads are replaced or when the vehicle's warning light indicates.
Offered in our Intermotor brand, we have the most complete Brake Pad Wear Sensor line in the industry. These are direct OE replacements with perfect fit, finish and function for flawless operation. As a basic manufacturer, Intermotor™ has complete control of the manufacturing process from componentry to finished product.Coming Soon!
