GE Sensing & Inspection Technologies has released the Accusolve Advanced Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) Soot Sensor, designed for on-road, off-road and industrial heavy-duty diesel applications.
According to the company, the sensor provides real-time soot loading data that helps improve the efficiency of internal combustion engines and aftertreatment systems. It also improves diesel fuel economy through utilizing radio frequency technology to more accurately measure DPF soot loadings.
"As we talked to major vehicle OEMs and diesel engine manufacturers, it became clear that the industry needed an improved sensing solution to better control DPF regeneration," said Tim Dummer, global director of transportation. "To meet this need, GE and a major equipment manufacturer collaborated to develop, validate and benchmark this innovative technology."
