Speed Sensor
Inductive sensor (4 pulses per compressor rotation)
Provides an A/C compressor speed signal; the A/C clutch control module (manually
controlled A/C) or A/C control head (automatic climate control) compares A/C
compressor speed to engine speed, calculates belt slippage (percentage) and switches
the A/C compressor off if slippage is too large (if, for example, the belt is too loose)
