The magnetic pickup (MPU) is the communication link between the engine and the electronic controller. The MPU is installed next to the drive shaft gear made of a material which reacts to a magnetic field. As the flywheel rotates it interrupts the MPU’s magnetic field and produces an AC signal corresponding to the engine speed.
CRE’s magnetic pickups detect steel sensing gears, produce electrical frequency, easily install on engines and are available in different sizes with different connectors. The range of pick-ups allows you to choose the best product to fit your application and offers the most effective speed sensor for speed reading and overspeed protection.
