Digital Temperature Sensor

The Digital Temperature Sensor with its minimum intrusive design improves the performance and sustainability of the Thermal Management System of electric vehicles.

Continental has developed a digital temperature sensor with a minimum intrusive design to improve the safety, performance  and sustainability of the thermal management system of electric vehicles.

The sensor is placed in e.g. coolant lines of the high-voltage battery system. Temperature data is transmitted via the LIN protocol.

Benefits & Features

  • Reduced fluid flow resistance increases the efficiency of the entire fluid line, helping to reduce the weight of the entire system
  • Digital interface reduces wiring harness between sensors and control units and enables optimization of computing power between sensors and ECU (Electronic Control Unit)
  • Reduced risk of leakage, additional diagnostic functions and ASIL rated components increase the functional safety of the digital temperature sensor
