Abstract (en)

An air cleaner assembly 10 suitable for a vehicle is disclosed, the air cleaner assembly 10 comprising an air filter box 12 through which in use intake air is supplied to a prime mover (not shown). The assembly further comprises an ECU box 20, arranged in use to accommodate an electronic control unit (ECU) 18. The air filter box 12 and the ECU box 20, are interlinked by an inlet passage 22 and an outlet passage 24, which are arranged to allow a flow of unfiltered air through the ECU box 20 from the air filter box 12. The ECU box 20 is defined in such a manner that the ECU 18 is a substantially sliding fit in the ECU box 20, with a clearance C being provided between at least a portion of the ECU 18 and at least one wall which defines the ECU box 20, such that the flow of air can pass substantially freely over at least one surface 18b of the ECU 18 to provide a cooling effect therefor. <IMAGE>
