ABS sensor

What is an ABS sensor?

An ABS sensor is a electronics device located on each wheel of a vehicle. Its main function is to monitor the speed at which each spins wheel and send this information to the ABS control unit.

The ABS control unit then uses this information to determine if the wheels are locking during hard braking. If it detects that one or more wheels are locking, it will automatically adjust the brake pressure to prevent the wheels from spinning. This helps the driver maintain control of the vehicle during emergency braking and reduces the risk of accidents on the road.

How does a sensor work?

The ABS sensor works by using a magnetic field to generate an electrical signal. It consists of a toothed ring or stopper wheel, which is mounted on the hub of the wheel, and a sensor located next to the ring.

As the wheel rotates, the teeth of the brake wheel pass the sensor, producing an electrical signal. The frequency of this signal is proportional to the speed at which the wheel rotates. The ABS control unit uses this information to calculate the speed of each wheel and compare it to the speed of the other wheels.

If the ABS control unit detects a difference in the speed of any of the wheels, it will assume that the wheel is locking and activate the ABS system to prevent skidding.

Why is he important?

The ABS sensor is an integral part of the ABS system, which is designed to make your vehicle safer to drive. In emergency situations, the system ABS can prevent skidding and help you maintain control of your vehicle, reducing the risk of accidents on the road.

Without the ABS sensor, the ABS system would not be able to function properly and you would not be able to benefit from this safety feature. It is important to ensure that the ABS sensor is working properly by checking it regularly and replacing it if necessary.
