Kidde’s Terminal Lug Sensing Element is a thermal detector that integrates into Kidde’s Automatic Fire Sensing and Suppression (AFSS) systems. The terminal lug sensing element is routed in the engine compartment where fire hazard is the greatest. The element monitors continuously, alerting the driver if any portion of the element is heated to abnormal temperatures.
