This sensor will allow a high-quality aftermarket engine management system to monitor fuel pressure or oil pressure and take immediate action or sound alarms if a fault condition is encountered.
For example, on a Link G4 the smart limits can be setup to by entering the minimum oil pressures for each engine speed range. If the oil pressure drops below the threshold for the current engine speed, then the ECU can automatically limit the engine speed to any desired rpm (e.g limp home mode). Features such as this save engines time and time again. But in order to perform these features the ECU does need the appropriate oil or fuel pressure sensor.
This sensor uses a 1/8″ NPT thread and a Packard 3-pin connector. The plug housing and terminals are included. Most aftermarket ECUs allow the sensor calibration data to be entered via the tuning software.
The linear calibration for this particular sensor is:
0.5V = 0 kPa (gauge)
4.5V = 689.5 kPa (gauge)
