Car body electronics: 

  • Timers (relays with electronic circuit)  

  • Electronic modules 

  • Air conditioning electronic monitoring system 

  • Fleet management and navigation systems 

  • ABS electronic units 

  • ECAS systems electronic units  


Engine management electronics:

  • Electronic starters 

  • Electronic units of spark plugs 



  • (NTC) Temperature sensors 

  • (piezoelectric) Knock sensor 

  • Engine revolution sensor for ABS system 

  • ABS wheel revolution sensor 

  • Sensor TDC (inductive)  

  • Air pressure sensor (inductive) 

  • Hydraulic pressure sensor for the brake system(piezoresistant) 

  • Exhaust gas pressure sensor 

  • Tyre speed sensor 

  • Oxygen sensor (Lambda probe)
