About Wheel Speed Sensors
Good wheel speed sensors are absolutely crucial to have in any vehicle to guarantee the utmost safety when driving. Being able to accurately gauge your speed is important in allowing your vehicle's stability and handling systems to operate as effectively as possible, so it's vital that should your speed sensors start to malfunction, you get it sorted straight away.
How Wheel Speed Sensors Work
Your vehicle's wheel speed sensors are the most important element in telling you how fast your vehicle is travelling. A properly calibrated set of wheel speed sensors or vehicle speed sensors will give your vehicle's ECU the most accurate reading of your vehicle's acceleration, running speed and deceleration, all of which are vital in optimising your handling and keeping you safe in unsure driving conditions.
Wheel speed sensors work by hooking up to each of your vehicle's wheels, and operate very simply. Consisting of a toothed ring and an electronic pickup, the sensor detects the rotation of the wheels every time a tooth makes contact with the pick up. By measuring the wheels' rate of revolution, wheel speed sensors give the most accurate and precise measurement of the speed your vehicle is travelling at any given moment. This information is then sent to the various systems of your vehicle that are responsible for it's stability and handling, including the ABS and electronic stability control systems.
