Speedometer Sensor

Recommended Posts

Hope someone can assist and confirm my suspicions.... I run a Smiths telemetrix speed which gets the input from a revetoc speed sensor located at the front o/s wheel, at the rear of he sensor tree is a small LED which apparently should flash on rotation.

 

My speedo suddenly stopped working on a run, and after further investigation I have discovered tat the LED is constantly lit, hence pointing me in the he direction if a faulty sensor....

 

Is there anyone out there who be may be able to confirm my suspicions?

 

 

Kind regards Peter

Hi Peter, proximity sensors in general, the led will be lit when the sensor "sees" something so it looks like yours is "seeing" constantly, I would remove it, wipe the face of it and you can also test it by holding it close to whatever it "sees" and moving it away, the led should come on and go out, if not then it looks like a new sensor.

not had dealings with that specific sensor but in theory if you used a multi meter on continuity on the sensor it should be going open and closed on each revolution of the wheel

Just a quick update.... All sorted after purchasing a sensor fro RS Components. Cheers again!
