FOND DU LAC, Wis. Engineers at Airtex Vehicle Electronics say they have addressed the leading cause of ABS wheel-speed sensor failure environmental damage with a new line of better-than-OE sensors that feature heavy-duty insulation and other enhancements. These sensors are available for virtually any popular late-model domestic or foreign nameplate application, according to Airtex.
Designed for direct replacement of OE ABS wheel-speed sensors, new Airtex sensors match the original parts’ mounting and connector designs and wire lengths to ensure fast, easy installation, according to the company. Unlike many OE and replacement sensors, however, Airtex says its units are equipped with heavier wire insulation and harness sheathing to prevent impact- and corrosion-related damage. Each sensor also features weather-pack connectors that lock out dirt, moisture, chemicals and other contaminants, the company adds.
“Our engineering target was to develop the last ABS sensors each vehicle will need, which means correcting OE design inadequacies and providing everything the technician needs to do the job right,” said David Hackbarth, senior project engineer, Airtex Vehicle Electronics.
Airtex ABS wheel-speed sensors come complete with mounting hardware, grease (when appropriate) and installation instructions.
