In order to comply with the new low emission requirements, the new generation of Euro 4 engines increasingly needs the aid of electronics. The interface with the vehicle is managed by a ‘communication bus’ and the traditional electric signals are no longer available. The ECU developed by TEQ controls the engine, the accelerator pedal and instrument panel. Two versions are available: the ‘instrument version’, with display, to be installed in the dashboard, and a simpler one, able to drive traditional instruments.
Deutz, the German leader engines company, is the first manufacturer that adopted this electronic control unit on its series production.
