Download Product Information

We engineer and manufacture the highest quality and most precise camshaft & crankshaft position sensors.


Camshaft and crankshaft sensors are designed and manufactured at our advanced Poland and North American IATF 16949-certified facilities. Our expert design centers start with the finest components, while maintaining a strict adherence to engineering excellence and precision manufacturing.

It’s this attention to detail that ensures every NAPA® Echlin® cam and crank sensor meets or exceeds the original it’s replacing for performance and durability.

Cam/Crank Sensor Testing

Cam/Crank Sensor Testing

48-Hour Vibration Test Ensures Durability

Sensors undergo three separate 48-64 hour vibration tests to ensure a long service life under the harshest conditions.

Chamber Testing Simulates Extreme Temperatures

To ensure optimal operation, chamber testing cycles from -40°F to 257°F.  We also run extensive end-of-line timing, pulse width, and signal amplitude testing.

What Our Testing Means For You

NAPA® Echlin® cam and crank sensors provide complete protection to deliver precise performance and durability under all operating conditions.

We Start with Premium Components 

Our commitment is to use only the finest components to produce camshaft and crankshaft sensors that perform under the toughest conditions.

Premium Camshaft Position Sensors

  • Sealed metal casing prevents oil intrusion

  • Fluorocarbon rubber oil seal ensures secure fit

  • Rotated mounting ear matches latest OE-design

  • Sealed construction withstands extreme under-hood conditions

  • Integrated waterproof connector ensures lasting performance

  • Advanced circuitry provides immunity from EMI (such as stray electro-magnetic fields, power spikes, and static electricity) that meets ISO standards

Superior Crankshaft Position Sensors

  • Matching connectors and tin-plated brass terminals ensure accurate, watertight connection to harness

  • High-strength neodymium magnets ensure proper signal voltage to the ECM

  • Factory-installed grommets and wire clips ensure proper mounting during installation

  • Protective sleeve prevents wires from chafing and creating short circuits

  • Integrated A/D converter and digital signal processing with dynamically adaptive switch point improves accuracy and operation

Tech Tip: Replace Camshaft & Crankshaft Position Sensors Together

Today’s engines use VVT systems with multiple camshafts and sensors to precisely monitor performance. A typical DOHC engine has 2-4 camshaft position sensors as well as a crankshaft position sensor.

For more than 100 years, when the OE failed, technicians trusted NAPA® Echlin® to deliver a part that’s equal
to or better than the original it’s replacing.
