Bosch Motorsport LSU 4.9 Wideband Lambda Sensor

This Bosch Lambda sensor is used with aftermarket engine management systems around the world. It's a universal racing oxygen sensor but only works with specialized racing engine management, advanced air/fuel and Lambda gauges, and Bosch Motorsport ECUs and Lambda control boxes (LT4). This is not a universal sensor to work in any production BMW. This is a motorsport-only wideband O2 sensor.

This sensor is designed to measure the oxygen content and Lambda value of exhaust gases in automotive gasoline engines. The wideband Lambda sensor LSU 4.9 is a planar ZrO2 dual cell limiting current sensor with integrated heater. Its monotonic output signal in the range of λ = 0.65 to air makes the LSU capable of being used as a universal sensor for λ = 1 measurement as well as for other Lambda ranges. The connector module contains a trimming resistor, which defines the characteristic of the sensor. The LSU4.9 operates only in combination with a special LSU-IC, used in most Bosch Motorsport ECUs and Lambda control boxes (LT4).

The main benefit of the LSU is the robust design combined with the high Bosch production quality standard.

Application Hints:

  • The Lambda sensor should be installed at a point which permits the measurement of a representative exhaust-gas mixture, which does not exceed the maximum permissible temperature.
  • As far as possible install the sensor vertically (cable upwards).
  • The sensor is not to be fitted near to the exhaust pipe outlet, so that the influence of the outside air can be ruled out.
  • The exhaust piping must be free of leaks in order to avoid the effects of leak-air.
  • Protect the sensor against condensation water.
  • The sensor is not to be coated or painted, nor is wax to be applied or any other forms of treatment.
  • Use only the recommended grease for lubricating the thread.
