EEC-IV Tomorrow's Electronic Engine Controls Today 820900

In 1982, Ford Motor Company will introduce its all new fourth generation electronic engine control system, EEC-IV, on selected applications starting with the 1983 1 6L EFI engine on Escort, Lynx, EXP and LN7 passenger cars. The EEC-IV system represents a new state-of-the-art in electronic engine management. EEC-IV was planned and designed to provide the system capability, flexibility, and cost/reliability benefits to satisfy Federal and consumer pressures for improved emissions, economy, and performance for all Ford powertrain and fuel delivery systems through the 1980's. This paper presents an overview of the electronic engine control technology trends which led to the development of EEC-IV, a review of EEC-IV capabilities and features, and a projection of future powertrain control requirements which could potentially be contained within the design capabilities of EEC-IV.
