Accelerator Pedal Sensor

Accelerator Pedal Sensor (APS)

  • Global market leader, production experience since 1996
  • Extensive application know-how guarantees fulfillment of individual customer needs
  • Use of robust HELLA CIPOS® technology

The accelerator pedal sensor (APS) delivers the driver’s desire to increase or decrease speed to the engine electronics by measuring the pedal position. HELLA is the market leader for APS.

Description

Since 1996 HELLA has developed integrated electronic APS for diesel and combustion engines as the first manufacturer of this kind. They are applicable in passenger cars with drive-by-wire and e-vehicles. APS determines the position of the accelerator pedal and generates the corresponding pedal characteristics (→ return force).

HELLA distinguishes between two different position measurement technologies with regards to APS. Alongside the established contactless inductive position sensor (CIPOS®), HELLA’s highly accurate, robust and advanced small packaged in-house position technology, HELLA also offers the traditional potentiometer technology.

Independent of the APS technology, the sensor is designed so that the pedal, the generation of the pedal force, and the sensor are integrated within one modular design. Thereby the design and the haptic of the pedal can be adapted according to the customer’s requirements. HELLA’s APS is offered as suspended and floor mounted types.

Apart from APS, HELLA develops active accelerator pedal sensors (AAPS). In addition to APS, AAPS communicates intuitively with the driver by providing feedback in special driving situations.
