Mein Auto: 530i
Twin sensors

There are two twin sensors at the front of the engine on my 2007 530i
I am trying to get a part number or in particular a name for what they are called
It is a very unusual name that I have forgotten. They are prone to failure and can be cleaned but I have tried this twice without luck
I believe they have something to do with cam timing? Can any one direct me on this?
Thanks

BMW uses another name as well.
Do you know what it is ? It is as obscure as Vanos
