Optimum engine control – the Telligent® engine management system

Telligent® engine management system

The Telligent® engine management system is kept constantly up to date with all relevant engine data, including engine speed, load and temperature – in addition to other variables, such as air pressure and outside temperature. This enables it to calculate the correct fuel injection duration and timing for each cylinder according to the given situation every few milliseconds.

Regulating the engine in this way, the Telligent® engine management system ensures high output, low fuel consumption and low-emission combustion. In the unlikely event of a malfunction, this will be indicated in the display, allowing the driver to react accordingly.
