  • can you feel the wheel?  

    I’m pleased to be writing a second article and this time I’ve decided to look at the active wheel speed sensor.
    Originally electronic anti-lock braking systems (ABS) used magnetic inductive sensors to measure wheel speed. These are classed as ‘passive’ sensors and are actuated by a rotating toothed ring. The sensor contains a magnetic core w1 vith a fine coil of wire around it. As each tooth passes the sensor it generates an alternating current (AC) analogue signal. The faster the wheel goes, the greater the frequency and the higher the voltage. The wheel speed is determined by the frequency. The main disadvantage of this is the weakness of the signal at low speeds.  

  • Wheel balancing from Bosch 

    The WBE 4200 and WBE 4400 semi-automatic wheel balancers from Bosch  provide the user with clear digital read-outs for a multitude of vehicles including passenger cars, light commercial vehicles and motorcycles. A new ergonomic design allows better access to the inside of the wheel and an improved working position, creating more comfort for the operator. These semi-automatic wheel balancers allow for a speedy customer turnover thanks to Bosch’s EASYFIX arm with automatic measurement of the diameter and distance of the wheel, allowing for a measuring time of eight seconds. Both machines have a space-saving hood and slim body design so they can be used even in the smallest workshop.
