The Lambda Meter LA4 is ETAS’s high-precision measuring device for emission levels. It allows cost-effective exhaust gas measurements on gasoline, diesel, and natural gas engines – each optimized by using fuel-specific characteristic curves. In addition to simple measurements of lambda values in the vehicle, long-term measurements to check the sensor accuracy can be conducted. The Lambda Meter is optimized for use with the Bosch broadband lambda sensor LSU. The LSU sensor is installed as an additional measuring sensor in the exhaust system. This allows the user to determine lambda values, oxygen content, and air/fuel ratio, as well as internal resistance, pump current, and heater voltage of the lambda sensor. In addition to the LSU sensors 4.2 and 4.7, the LA4 also supports the model range 4.9. The different sensors can be easily calibrated by using switchable internal resistances. LSU sensors with manufacturer-specific connectors are easy to integrate. The measured value (λ, O2 or A /F) can be continuously displayed on the LCD. A membrane keyboard allows quick and easy switching between the measured variables. Independently
from the display, measured values can be transmitted to other devices via an analog output (configurable by parameters). Its small size, robust design, and high-quality workmanship make the LA4 ideal for installation in the vehicle. An additional display can be installed separately to facilitate the handling of specific installation requirements at the test bench or in the vehicle. After power-on, the device conducts a self-test using internal references. An optimized heater control ensures that the sensor quickly reaches its operating temperature while preventing overheating damages, even at highly fluctuating exhaust gas temperatures and different supply voltages.
In addition to the static calculation method based on characteristic curves, the Lambda Meter can also be adapted flexibly by direct input to changing fuel or environmental conditions.
Planar Broadband Lambda Sensor LSU
The LSU broadband lambda sensor is a planar two-cell limit current sensor. The modular design in conjunction with planar technology allows the integration of several functions. The two major components of the LSU sensor are a Nernst concentration cell (sensor cell) and a pump cell transporting oxygen ions. Both of these sensors are tuned individually, and their measuring accuracy, even at the stoichiometric point (λ = 1) is achieved by using the compensation measuring technique.
