Cylinder deactivation can improve fuel economy by using a reduced number of cylinders that operate at higher loads and thermal efficiency, while other cylinders are turned off, when the engine operates at partial load conditions. A switching roller finger follower is one of the technologies that help make it work.
Electrohydraulic advances keep coming as distributed electronics flex their muscle.
Industry insiders at Molex offer what they think the future may hold for heavy-duty components in 24/7 communications systems.
It is crucial that different advanced driver assistance systems functionalities interact seamlessly with existing electronic control unit (ECU) networks.
