Successfully protecting the environment through vehicle emissions control Is a major achievement for NGK. By working in close co-operation with vehicle manufacturers we have developed and globally marketed many of the automotive sensors that are at the heart of refined engine management systems needed to meet the demands of worldwide environmental legislation.
Nowadays, sensors send back information to an onboard computer from numerous points in a vehicle. Among the types manufactured by NGK are those that control the air/fuel ratio, exhaust gas sensors designed to be used according to a customer's specifications, and combustion sensors that help control ignition timing.
The superiority of NGK sensors has resulted in them being increasingly specified as OE on many new models. For example, every Ford Modeo petrol model is equipped with NGK isolated ground heated exhaust gas oxygen sensors, endorsing NGK's premier position at the forefront of sensor technology.
NGK will continue to exchange technical expertise and improve service activities with customers, to ensure that the "Clean Technology" status of our sensors is enhanced even further, protecting the environment for generations to come.
NGK has developed special ceramics for vehicles for use in parts as oxygen sensors, which play an important role in auto emission purifying systems.
