Camshaft Sensors

The Coverage and Quality You Need

With hundreds of camshaft sensors in our line, we supply comprehensive coverage for all makes, including Chrysler, Ford, GM, Honda, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Toyota, and Volkswagen. To ensure quality, we manufacture our camshaft position sensors at our TS16949-certified facility in Reynosa, Mexico.

Designed with Premium Components

To protect against failure, we manufacture camshaft sensors using premium components, including:

  • Fluorocarbon rubber oil seal ensures secure fit
  • Integrated waterproof connector ensures lasting performance
  • Sealed construction withstands extreme under-hood conditions
  • Advanced circuitry provides immunity from EMI (such as stray electro-magnetic fields, power spikes, and static electricity) that meets ISO standards

Plus, to ensure durability and longevity, we subject each camshaft sensor to extensive end-of-line testing.

Our 48-Hour Vibration Test Ensures Durability

Our camshaft position sensors undergo 48-to-64-hour vibration testing across three different planes to ensure performance under the harshest conditions. We also subject each sensor to extensive end-of-line timing, pulse width, and signal amplitude testing.


What Our Testing Means for You

  • Protect against over-voltage, under-voltage, reverse-voltage, and short circuits
  • Maintain accuracy during heavy-duty shock, vibration, and maximum temperature conditions

About Cam Sensors

Typically located in the engine’s cylinder head, camshaft sensors determine which cylinder is firing in order to establish injector synchronization and coil firing sequence in DIS systems. The sensors can fail due to extreme temperature, contamination, and wear and tear.

Tech Tip: Replace Cam/Crank Sensors Together

  • With ever-increasing fuel economy regulations, modern engines are using VVT systems with multiple camshafts
  • A typical DOHC engine will have 2-4 camshaft sensors as well as a crankshaft sensor
  • If one sensor fails, it likely means that the other sensors are nearing the end of their service life, too
  • To ensure proper performance, we recommend replacing the cam/crank sensors together
