MAF voltage

I have a 1999, C280 V6.

What is the voltage across the MAF sensor? Is it 0-5 volts, 5-0 volts, or 0-8 volts.

I am working with a company to design a new MAF that will also use a piggyback controller to the stock ECU so that the air/fuel ratio can be altered along with the ignition timing.

Thanks,

Jeff

Put a meter or scope across it and read it. Problem solved.

I wouldn't know how to do this as the voltage will change with the air flow.

I was hoping some of the technical people would be able to look up the answer or already know the answer from experience.

Thanks,

Jeff, electrical idiot

Most air mass flow sensors are simple potentiometers. If there are three connections, it is easy to determine what the voltage range will be. Measure the two outside terminals of the pot (not the wiper) and that is the reference voltage voltage number you are looking for. The reference voltage will not change as the sensor changes, only the voltage at the wiper will change.
