Since its inception in January 2014, MUSE production has reached 10 million, customers around the world. The assembly plant is located in China, Korea, India, Hungary, Brazil and Mexico. MUSE is mainly mounted Sensor on the active camshaft and crankshaft, speed sensor and gearbox speed sensor. According to Thomas Jauch, head of the speed sensor division, Passive Safety and Sensing Division, Continental Group, the cost of the sensor unit is largely dependent on the number of the entire automotive industry. If the design can be a variety of applications can be integrated to achieve economies of scale to maximize the effect.
Torsional passive position sensor with 'ready to turn on' (TPO) function is very accurate, signal reproducible, responsive to ignition, and excellent resistance to migration. In addition, the operation of such sensors does not require the use of rare earth magnetic materials. According to a unified sensor design, the crankshaft sensor is programmed so that no direction determination is used. It supports a variety of pulse width protocol, strong exception, can be in the engine start and stop state positioning wheel vibration and temperature changes. Transmission Suction Control Valve speed sensor is characterized by active diagnosis and vibration reduction function, due to high-speed sensing capability, transmission speed sensor has a variety of pulse width can be used for direction determination.
Due to the high level of design and manufacturing of standardized concepts, MUSE can significantly reduce the development and verification of the test time and investment, greatly saving the development costs. If all the Fuel Rail Pressure Sensor advantages of the product to give full play to the mainland group to make the OEM factory time to market more than doubled.
In addition, the terminal programmable features enable MUSE to be highly optimized to accommodate a variety of engine requirements. Olivier Marle, senior director of the engine speed sensor electromagnetic system and magnetic sensor, said that when integrating a variety of applications in a single sensor, MUSE has a strong flexibility to adapt to a variety of specifications changes Temperature Sensor and engine upgrades. Michael Le Bian, head of the engine and gearbox speed sensor development, it is a big challenge to integrate all the engine and gearbox speed sensor functions into a single sensor unit. After two years of hard work, the product yield reaches 1000 Million, for this achievement feel proud.
Continental Group Passive Safety and Sensor Division won the 'Automotive News' Quality Supplier Pressure Sensor Contribution Award for its innovative MUSE product in 2015.
