Wheel Speed Sensor
Sensor conveying the number of tire revolutions
Wheel Speed Sensor Integrated With EPB Harness
This product is an integration of a wheel velocity sensor and a harness for the EPB (Electric Parking Brake). Sumitomo Wiring Systems was the first in the world to reduce the weight of the product and cut manufacturing costs, by integrating the wheel speed sensor to the harness for the EPB.
Properties of the Wheel Speed Sensor Integrated With EPB Harness
Sumitomo Wiring Systems has integrated the wheel speed sensor and the harness for EPB through application of the technology of the wheel speed sensor, wire, and connector, instead of using the intermediate connectors and double sheath wire.
We realized the integration of the wheel speed sensor and the harness for EPB by combining the 2 core cables for the ABS and 2 core cables for the EPB and converting them into a 4 core cable. By commonizing the components attached to the harness, a reduction of in working hours needed to assemble components and vehicles was realized. In addition, we contributed to weight reduction of the vehicles by simplifying the routing design for the car manufacturing companies.
