NGK launches 20 new wide band NTK Lambda sensors


Date: 06-Nov-2018

Ignition specialist NGK continues to enhance its NTK sensors offering with the launch of 20 new wide band Lambda sensors in November 2018.

The new wide band sensors – commonly referred to as ‘5-wire’ Lambda sensors – will supplement the company’s existing range of 64 NTK OE 5-wire sensors.

The launch significantly increases its UK range coverage – particularly for VAG models – and means that NGK now has 5-wire sensors available for almost every vehicle manufacturer who utilises this technology.  

The products will be visible on MAM Software in mid-November when they will be supported by full original equipment (OE) and competitor cross-references.

News of the launch comes hard on the heels of NGK’s announcement that it is to introduce a range of new premium NTK camshaft and crankshaft sensors in the UK in 2019.

A new European programme, comprising 567-part numbers covering 88 percent of the car parc, equivalent to 270 million cars, was announced recently at the Automechanika Frankfurt show and UK-specific part numbers and vehicle parc coverage will be confirmed over the coming months.

Mark Hallam, Marketing Manager, NGK Spark Plugs (UK) Ltd, said: “The launch of our new NTK 5-wire sensors, which are already in stock, confirms the NTK electronics brand as the complete, one-stop shop for replacement sensors.

“NTK has more than 40 years’ experience in the sensor business and this is a fantastic addition to our 
portfolio of Lambda sensors, exhaust gas temperature sensors (EGTS), NOx sensors and Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensors and Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensors. 

“The NTK sensors’ offering will be even stronger next year with the introduction of our new premium NTK camshaft and crankshaft sensors and is sure to prove popular with our distributors and their garage customers.”

NGK Spark Plugs (UK) Ltd is also a leading supplier of OE spark plugs and glow plugs, plus ignition coils, to the independent automotive aftermarket and says the experience it has in supplying the VMs worldwide allows it to offer exactly the right sensor for every vehicle application.

The company is the world’s largest manufacturer of Lambda sensors and, as an OE supplier to many of the world’s leading VMs under the NTK brand, supplies the same components to the UK automotive aftermarket.
