Intake Air Temperature

Intake Air Temperature

Comments |  Add Comment

The Intake Αir Temperature (IΑT) sensor is built into mass air flow sensor or in some vehicles mounted to the air filter duct housing. The sensor detects intake air temperature and transmits a signal to the Engine Control Module (ECM).

The temperature sensing unit uses a thermistor which is sensitive to the change in temperature. Electrical resistance of the thermistor decreases in response to the temperature rise.

The Intake Αir Temperature signal is used as an input for various systems in the vehicle.
