This Bosch PST-F1 sensor represents a new era of convenience for fuel & oil monitoring. This sensor combines pressure & temperature from the same source with high accuracy thereby simplifying installation, wiring, & use for customers.
The Bosch PST-F1 is designed to measure gauge pressure and temperature of engine fluids such as oil or fuel in port injection engines. Pressure range 0 to 10 bar (0 to 145psi) and temperature range -40 to +140°C (-40F to 284°F). The fitting is M10x1.00.
This sensor is designed to measure relative gasoline pressure and gasoline temperature in port injection systems. The pressure measurement of the sensor is by means of a piezoresistive element which is acted on by a silicon diaphragm in contact with the fluid being measured. The reference (relative) pressure is provided via an opening in the sensor housing and acts on the active upper side of the silicon diaphragm.
The sensor can be connected directly to most control units.
For temperature measurement please use a pull-up resistor with
an optimal value of 4.6 kOhm.
The sensor has a protection for overvoltage, reverse polarity and
The sensor is not intended to be used for safety related applications
