Amphenol Advanced Sensors Outside Air Temperature Sensors

Amphenol Advanced Sensors Outside Air Temperature (OAT) Sensors measure the temperature outside a vehicle's passenger compartment. Amphenol Advanced Sensors OAT Sensors are typically mounted inside or near the front bumper or in the side mirror. These sensors relay the outside air temperature to the controller of an automatic heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) system. The HVAC controller uses this temperature to help control the interior temperature of the vehicle. The sensors also provide the vehicle occupants with temperature readings from outside the car. This information is particularly useful when driving under near freezing or freezing conditions.
