CTS Corporation´s RF Sensor for particulate filters has won the AMA Association for Sensor and Measurement´s 2017 Innovation Award, the company said.
Presented this year for the 17th time, the AMA Innovation Award is among the most renowned prizes in sensor and measurement technology.
CTS´ RF Sensor provides an alternative to conventional methods to meet on-board diagnostics (OBD) requirements for particulate filters through direct, and highly accurate, measurements of the filter´s state. Originally developed for diesel applications, particulate filters are now also being implemented for gasoline vehicles to reduce soot emissions. CTS´ RF Sensor enables more efficient engine and emissions system operation and control by providing multiple sense functions in a single device, which simplifies and improves both the control and diagnostics of particulate filters.
