Pressure Sender Units

This is the new 3 wire pressure sensor and is used for all pressure measurements - Oil, boost or fuel pressure.
As you have 4 ranges 2, 5, 7, 10 Bar to choose from, it is best to choose as sender based on your maximum possible pressure reading. The new 3 wire sensors use 12 V dc and earth and produce an output of 0.5 to 4.5 Linearly from 0 to Max pressure. They are totally immune to earthing and mounting issues.

Pressure Options:

Pressure Range Part Number
0 - 2 Bar (0 - 15 Psi) MPS2
0 - 5 Bar (0 - 75 Psi) MPS5
0 - 7 Bar (0 - 100 Psi) MPS7
0-10 Bar (0 - 150 Psi) MPS10

 

Electrical Fitting: 3 Pin Waterproof connector with leads

Wiring: Viewed from the Rear (Wire) side of the plug

A EARTH - To EMS BLACK lead*
B +12V - To EMS RED lead*
C SIGNAL Output to EMS GREY lead*

*NOTE: Wiring on the plug lead may vary, do not use the colours on plug, use only the position to acertain function.

Thread: 1/8 NPT-27

 

DISCONTINUED PRESSURE SENDERS

OLD VDO PRESSURE SENDERS

The Sender was used for all pressure measurements - Oil, boost or fuel pressure.
As you have two ranges 0-5 and 0-10 bar to choose from, it is best to choose as sender based on your maximum possible pressure reading. In some cases a 0-2 Bar sender was supplied for boost, this sender is no longer available from VDO, you will have to use the 0-5 bar sender and possibly recalibrate it for maximum accuracy in a boost aplication.

Pressure Options:

  Part Number
Pressure Range Without Switch With Switch
0 - 5  Bar (0-72 PSI) 360 081 029 004 360 081 030 049
0-10 Bar (0-145 PSI) 360 081 029 012 360 081 030 052

 

Electrical Fitting: 3mm Stud with Thumb nut requiring a Round 3mm Insulated Ring Terminal

G: Guage Terminal: Fitted on senders with one or two terminals. This terminal provides the analogue signal to the EMS oil pressure display and is conected to the GREY wire

WK: Warning Terminal: Only fitted to senders with two terminals. This terminal provides a on/off switch for the oil pressure light and is connected to the BLUE wire

In Boost aplications, the sender is either screwed directly into the housing, or sometimes an adapter is needed to adjust a larger thread to suit the sender thread.

In cases where space is limited or engine temperature will cause damage to the sender, an oil extension hose is supplied to fit the sender away from the engine.
These adapters are available in various sizes - see the Adapters section.

New MDSxx Pressure sensors carry a 1 year warranty from date of invoice.
