Cambiare ABS Sensors

With a range of over 700 Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) sensors consisting of active and passive technology, Cambiare explains the most common reasons for ABS sensor failure.

The ABS is an automotive safety system that reacts to the wheels’ rotational speed when braking. It ensures that the tyres of the vehicle remain in contact with the road surface. This prevents the wheels from ‘locking up’ (ceasing rotation) to avoid uncontrolled skidding and reduce stopping distances on slippery surfaces. ABS sensors are located at each wheel, providing the system with a way of knowing when a wheel is about to lock up by monitoring the rotational speed of each wheel.

Given the position of the ABS sensor, it is subject to extreme elements such as heat, vibrations, dirt and moisture ingress. As a result, the most common reason for ABS sensor failure is wear and tear. As ABS sensors are safety critical, quality is therefore essential to ensure longevity and safety.

Cambiare’s ABS sensor programme is produced in state-of-the-art facilities, confirming to international manufacturing standards including TS16949 and ISO9001. All ABS sensors by Cambiare are subjected to stringent quality control tests to ensure they stand up to thermal shock, vibration, moisture and corrosion.

Highlights include:

  • VE701101 ABS sensor for BMW 118D 2.0 Coupe (2009-2014)
  • VE701058 ABS sensor for Volkswagen Golf 1.6 (2009-2012)
  • VE701096 ABS sensor for Audi A3 1.9 (2003-2010)

Cambiare ABS sensors are catalogued on the F:Drive and MAM Autocat. For more information, please speak to your local FPS representative.
