Multiple Cylinder Electronic Throttle Body

Product Benefits

  • Developped with core components from Continental Generation 8 electronic throttle control technology
  • Thanks to the use of this component in combination with the M3D ECU, specific  functions can be supported independently from accelerator grip or pedal set value:
    • Idle speed control
    • Cruise control
    • Anti-slip control
    • Throttle dashpot function
    • Support of the robotized transmission or electronic CVT
    • Electronic stability control (ESP)
  • Improvements in exhaust emission, fuel consumption and driving comfort can be reached by separation of intake air throttling and accelerator pedal position
  • Increased product life and improved sensor reliability due to contactless redundant MR-sensor
  • Master-slave concept based on automotive core components and standard including safety  

General description

  • This drive by wire electronic throttle body for multiple cylinders represents in fact a full family of possible customizable throttle bodies able to address all multiple cylinder engine architectures: L2, V2, 3 cylinders.
  • This family of throttle bodies is built around the master-slave throttle body concept where there is the presence of a unique motorized throttle which is then mechanically driving the other throttles
  • These customized throttle bodies will in any case take benefit of a standard-generic core electronic and gear automotive technology coming from Continental Automotive which is leader of these components in the automotive market.
  • These throttle bodies consist of a master throttle body with the following sub-assembles: Aluminum housing, Throttle plate, 2-step gear train/return springs, limp home spring, M34 DC-Motor, Sensor cover including redundant MR-position sensors, and 6-pole connector + a mechanical link to the slave’s mechanical throttle bodies.
  • The position of the motor can be customized in order to optimize the mechanical integration of this throttle body into the specific engine architecture 

Configurations & Options

  • This product has to be marinized for Marine and Personal Watercraft application.
