Mass Air Flow
MASS AIR FLOW SENSORS (MAF)
- The mass air flow sensor, sometimes known as a MAF sensor or air flow meter, is an electrical device designed to measure the flow of air entering the vehicle intake manifold.
- The mass air flow sensor is an integral part of the vehicle engine management system and is normally located in the vehicle inlet piping between the air filter and the throttle body assembly. The mass air flow sensor converts the measured air flow into an electrical output voltage or frequency signal enabling the ECU to accurately control air/fuel delivery.
- The mass air flow sensor must be compatible with the vehicle engine management system; the Tridon mass air flow sensor range has been carefully researched and engineered to suit each specific application.
- As mass air flow sensor electrical circuits, technical specifications and appearance may vary; always refer to the Tridon vehicle application list to ensure correct part number selection.
