Represented here, the Clēr™ fluid control unit (FCU) can be configured with as few as three independently controlled cleaning zones for today’s ADS features. Its modular design facilitates expansion for more complex AV designs.

Our new Fluid Control Unit (FCU) is an automotive grade solution for today’s ADS and AV applications. Durable enough to withstand the demanding environments of the toughest application, the Clēr™ FCU can be configured with as few as 3 independently controlled cleaning zones for today’s ADS features but its modular design facilitates expansion for more complex AV designs. The flexible design provides customized barb configurations, Analog VDC or CAN/LIN capable controls, and easily engineered integration. The optimized pressure drop can be maintained for flow rates up to 1.7LPM through a single valve, allowing for robust cleaning of sensor zones by delivering washer fluid for up to five (5) Clēr™ LIDAR cleaning nozzles. Optical sensor availability can be restored to safe and functional levels in less than 1 second when combined with our advanced Clēr™ cleaning nozzles and tubing solutions.
