1. Diesel Engine

a. Electric Engine Governor

Engine governor is the mechanism to maintain the constant engine speed. Our angle position sensor has been installed in the governor for the angle or stroke sensing of the actuator.

b. Exhaust Gas Treatment

Diesel engine tend to release harmful substances such as Nox and PM compared to the gasoline engine.
