Measurement SpecialitiesMeasurement Specialties (NASDAQ:MEAS) designs and manufactures sensors for applications in medical, environmental, military/aerospace, automotive, industrial and engine/vehicle industries.
Our automotive industry standard Powertrain Sensors are used worldwide for pressure, air humidity, temperature, position, fluid level and fluid properties applications in on highway and off road vehicles.
Key applications include, among others, engine oil ageing and contamination, fuel identification, exhaust high temperature, engine air intake, fuel in oil dilution, spool valve position, and urea quality for SCR systems.
Relying on patented tuning fork technology, the MEAS multi parameter Urea Quality Sensor measures urea concentration, temperature and identifies quality of Adblue/DEF (Diesel Emission Fluid) used in on and off-highway vehicles’ SCR systems.
With optimized in-line mounting design, the UQS uses high performance algorithms to provide real-time multi-parametric analysis of DEF for optimisation of NOx reduction emission control systems. The UQS is the key tool to meet vehicle emissions specifications as JP 09, EPA 10, Tier IV and EURO VI and to achieve OBD compliance of SCR systems.
