During installation on the machine it's sufficient to unscrew the protective plug and screw the
sensor with its o-ring right down to the bottom and tighten it.
Sensor wiring :
The sensor has to be connected with EGS pin 10 and 11. A suitable sensor connector is
supplied along with the sensor.
A good connection between sensor and EGS can be achieved in two ways :
· use of a shielded cable
· use of a twisted pair cable
Shielded cable :
If shielded cable is used, make sure that the mechanical strength of the cable and its
temperature specification is suitable for the application.
CENTRAL CONDUCTOR (INSULATED)
Connection of an inductive speed sensor with shielded cable
The central conductor of the shielded cable has to be connected with EGS pin 10 (HOT
sensor input) on one end and with a sensor pin on the other side.
The shield has to be connected to EGS pin 11 (GND sensor input) on one end and with the
other sensor pin on the other side. (Inductive sensors have no polarity)
MAKE SURE NOT TO CONNECT THE SHIELD TO THE
VEHICLE CHASSIS !
This would produce electrical noise on the sensor input and can lead to degraded operation.
