Vane Air How Meter Electrical Circuit

The sensor movable contact is attached to the measuring plate and rides on a fixed resistor wired between the reference voltage input and the ground. As the volume of air entering the engine increases, the movable contact moves across the fixed resistor, causing a change in signal output voltage.

There are two designs of vane air flow meters used on Toyota L type EFI systems. The first design generates a signal which varies from low voltage at low air volumes to high voltage at high air volumes. The second design sensor has opposite signal characteristics. These sensors also operate on different reference voltages. Both sensor designs integrate an intake air temperature sensor into the air flow meter.
