Targeted for Powertrain and other Critical applications, the Z-15 has been specifically designed to be integrated within the existing final application (throttle body, air-intake valve…) to avoid the duplication of costs associated with the standard “bolt-on” alternatives that prevail in the marketplace.

Moreover, because of the cost effectiveness of the Z-15 solution, TRUE redundancy can be achieved employing two or more ganged Z-15’s.
