Many of the sensors found in modern day cars are resistor typed. Resistor type sensors are such sensors that change their resistance when the physical value they control has changed. Anyone who has ever worked in auto diagnostics has come across the necessity of having a suitable resistance, in order to check the efficiency of a sensor or the whole system that includes the sensor.
An Automotive Resistor Substitution Box is a unit containing resistors of many different resistance values, with 3 mechanical switches which allow any one of various discrete resistances offered by the box to be dialed in. This automotive type box offers a convenient way of selecting and quickly changing a resistance, without needing to attach resistors one by one or even stock each value.
The Ditex’s Automotive Resistor Sensor Simulator is useful for simulation purposes in the automotive repair work, for inspection and testing applications of all car resistor type sensors.
The automobile resistor simulator is a very useful tool for simulating, checking and testing all kinds of resistances found in an automobile. You can choose between a wide range of resistance values from 0 ohm to 30 000 ohm (30Kohm) with a resolution of 5 ohm. The required resistance value is chosen using 3 rotary switches. Because of this, the necessity of maintaining a stock of resistors, changing one resistor after another and having to decode their color code, is gone.
