Mass Air Flow Sensors
More commonly known as MAF sensor or air meter, the mass airflow sensor has one very important job; measuring the amount of air entering the engine for an optimal air-fuel ratio. Without this information, the ECU will not be able to accurately control fuel injection, resulting in an engine that will either idle roughly, or worst case, not at all. But don’t worry! We’ve been producing OE MAF sensors since the 1970s. Today, we hold more than 30 patents in MAF sensing technology and signal processing, and have delivered more than 50 million OE MAF sensors for over 500 customer applications. So why not try us for your aftermarket needs too.
Innovative OE design
We build our OE expertise into every MAF sensor we make. Featuring a proprietary temperature compensation design, they offer outstanding performance over a wide range of ambient temperatures. And are fast to respond to changing engine conditions – typically less than 15 milliseconds to respond to 90 percent of a flow change. Innovative, dual-heated elements on specific references also help to ensure optimal performance, fuel efficiency and reduced emissions
OE engineered and tested
By testing and calibrating to OE specifications, our MAF sensors provide the same accurate readings and airflow output as the OE. Each sensor is tested on state-of-the-art sonic nozzle-testing equipment capturing over 6,000 data points per flow, for optimal calibration accuracy. They’re also flow tested to match the OE for signal stability (noise), temperature compensation (ability of the MAF sensor to measure air flow accurately from -30°C to 70°C) and electromagnetic compatibility.
Some things are better new. That’s why every sensor we make – whether with or without the housing—is built with all-new components and never remanufactured. Remanufactured MAFs are simply cleaned and tested, so any contamination on the sensor may not be eliminated, resulting in inaccurate readings to the ECU.
Greener probe-only technology
It’s often the electronics on the sensor probe that fail, meaning it’s not always necessary to replace the complete part. So we developed a probe-only solution, in addition to a full range of complete units. By eliminating the plastic housing, this provides a greener, more cost-effective and faster repair option.
The complete package
With Delphi Technologies you get access to the complete package: the range, advanced DS diagnostics including the ability to look at live data, both at idle and max RPM, to determine if the MAF sensor is reporting the correct data, expert training and support and vehicle technical information including wiring diagrams, component locations and guided diagnostic procedures.
