“Our continually growing replacement Lambda Sensor programme allows distributors and garages across Europe to benefit from our advanced technology and many unique applications,” explains Stefan Verhoef, Lambda Sensor Product Manager at DENSO Europe B.V.’s Business Unit After Market. “This latest range extension in particular provides new references that represent a unique opportunity for DENSO distributors to work even closer with workshops, as the following Honda OE part numbers are not covered by competitors, Bosch or NGK: DOX-1452, DOX-1455, DOX-1461, DOX-1457, DOX-1460, DOX-1424 and, DOX-1454.”

As one of the world’s foremost manufacturers of original vehicle parts and systems, DENSO has an exceptional understanding of Lambda Sensor technology. Its original Lambda Sensors are selected by a number of leading marques including Toyota, Honda, Jaguar, Volvo, Mazda, Subaru, Landrover, Daimler Chrysler, General Motors and Opel/Vauxhall.

Aftermarket customers can access these same pioneering OE technologies through DENSO’s replacement Lambda Sensors programme, which includes Unheated and Heated sensors (switching type) in planar and thimble types, A/F (linear type), Lean Burn and Titania sensors. L

Many of the types of Lambda Sensors offered as part of the IAM programme are unique to DENSO and not offered by other major brands. For example DENSO was the first company to make the Lambda Sensor a quantitative measurable sensor ensuring it can not only sense if the air/fuel mixture is too lean or too rich, but also by how much. This development was a huge step forward helping ECU's respond and anticipate much more accurately, leading to improvements in fuel economy and lower pollution levels.
