A racecars throttle position sensor (TPS) is used to monitor the position of the throttle valve and is mounted on the throttle body. It converts valve position into a proportional voltage signal which is fed to the engine control unit (ECU). The sensor signal is used by the ECU to control the ignition and fuel injection timing. The information from the TPS is critical for proper start up and smooth throttle response. When used in a 'drive by wire' system, the TPS is usually duplex in design (dual output signals) for sensor signal redundancy. Active Sensors offer a number of 'motorsport ready' sensor solutions for throttle position measurement.
