Coolant temperature sensors

Empowering performance

Coolant temperature sensors

Coolant temperature sensors (CTS) are installed in all passenger cars and trucks. A maximum of two pieces are usually installed per vehicle. In addition, it’s also applicable to hybrid and electric vehicles. All our CTS are extensively tested in the NRF sensor laboratory in Spain. In an ISO certified clean room, NRF is testing, validating and developing all kinds sensors.

Competitive range
The NRF coolant temperature sensor range contains 106 references covering 145 million cars and 1.5 million trucks.

The function of a coolant temperature sensor
A coolant temperature sensor (CTS) (also known as an ECT sensor or ECTS (engine coolant temperature sensor) is used to measure the temperature of the coolant/antifreeze mix in the cooling system, giving an indication of how much heat the engine is giving off. The sensor works with the vehicle’s ECU, continually monitoring the coolant temperature to make sure the engine is running at the optimum temperature.
