Commercial vehicles are subject to exceptionally high stress levels: they must carry heavy loads across long distances. MEYLE truck experts have been taking care of the heavy vehicles on the world’s roads, dealing with quality testing, sales and development of MEYLE truck parts – for more than 25 years now.
In line with the 25th anniversary of MEYLE spare parts for trucks, MEYLE is now adding the MEYLE-ORIGINAL-NOx sensor to its range. This sensor complements the truck electronics range and ensures the best possible performance under extreme loads. The MEYLE ORIGINAL-NOx sensor supports optimum exhaust gas aftertreatment and thus enables compliance with the strict emission values from Euro 5, according to the company. Non-compliance may lead to the expiry of the operating license.
The NOx sensor measures the nitrogen oxide (NOx) content of the exhaust gas, and thus is an important information instrument for the engine control unit to control the combustion process in order to comply with exhaust emission standards. This procedure ensures regular regeneration of the SCR catalytic converter (Selective Catalytic Reduction). If faults occur during the process, no regeneration is carried out and the SCR catalytic converter is and remains saturated. Subsequently, no further nitrogen oxides can be converted and compliance with the emission values is no longer ensured. The control unit switches to the emergency program and the engine is throttled back in power. Furthermore, a sensor that is not functioning properly can lead to increased consumption of the urea solution.
The sensor has been manufactured according to strict MEYLE quality standards and OE requirements and tested for functionality and resilience to ensure the best possible performance under the extreme stresses and strains of everyday truck operation.
FIA ETRC Digital Racing Challenge: Truck Racing at home
In order to be able to test and further develop quality and resilience even under extreme conditions, the Hamburg-based manufacturer has been involved in FIA ETRC Truck Racing since 2014. MEYLE will continue to support the team around MAN driver Sascha Lenz as a technical cooperation partner in the 2020 racing season.
Due to the current situation, sporting competitions were prohibited, so that the starting signal for the ETRC season has been delayed. In order to shorten the race-free time for motor sport fans worldwide, the European Truck Racing Association has launched the “ETRC Digital Racing Challenge,” an online-based racing series with a total of eight race weekends. Truck driver Sascha Lenz and his partner MEYLE already had every reason to celebrate: in the first races of the digital season the German truck driver finished second and third. The next round of the ETRC Digital Racing Challenge will take place on June 28 at digital Nürburgring and will be broadcast live globally across ETRC’s social media platforms.
The MEYLE ORIGINAL NOx sensor is available under part numbers: 034 802 0002, 034 802 0003, 034 802 0004, 12-34 802 0001, 12-34 802 0002, 12-34 802 0003, 14-34 802 0004, 14-34 802 0005, 14-34 802 0006, 234 802 0001, 534 802 0002, 534 802 0003, 834 802 0001, 834 802 0002, 834 802 0003, 834 802 0004 available for various Mercedes, MAN, DAF, IVECO and SCANIA models.
