ept products can be found in many different parts of an automobile where they have to meet a number of requirements.
Move to one of the red dots to find out where ept products are used today:
1 Power window unit
Electronic pinch protection is usually included, in addition to easy opening and closing. Generally, the system responds differently to longer or shorter presses of the button.
2 Rain/light sensor
A reflection measurement behind the glass of the windshield generally detects wetness, and therefore the amount of rain, on it. The windshield wipers can be controlled based on this data. On the other hand, the headlights can be controlled by measuring the ambient light.
3 Air conditioning controllers
For controlling cooling, heating, and ventilation depending on the temperature and user settings.
The body control module controls and monitors various vehicle functions such as power windows, headlights, taillights, tire pressure, and keyless access control.
5 ABS/ESP controllers
The ABS controller regulates the braking force and its distribution depending on the respective tire rotation speed. This is intended to achieve maximum deceleration without locking the wheels. In combination with the EPS, the vehicle is prevented from swerving to one side or another.
6 Airbag sensors
They measure the negative acceleration of the vehicle and pass this information to the airbag controller.
7 Headlight range controller
The headlight beam is adjusted according to the vehicle’s lengthwise tilt, ensuring that the road is optimally lit for the driver at all times.
8 Lane change assistance system
This assistance system warns the driver by means of radar sensors, cameras, or laser scanners if there is a risk of collision when changing lanes. A further development is the lane change assistance system that automatically guides the vehicle back into the original lane with a steering correction.
9 Airbag controller
This controller triggers the airbag based on feedback from various acceleration and pressure sensors. For example, this happens when pronounced negative acceleration values or a significant increase in pressure is detected. Only certain airbags are triggered depending on the vehicle deceleration and collision angle.
10 Engine controllers
Today this is a highly developed computer for controlling, regulating, and monitoring engine functioning.
11 Transmission controllers
They protect the transmission against overloading and improve vehicle shifting characteristics, for example, by interacting with the engine controller to reduce drive torque during the shifting process.
12 Acceleration sensors
They determine the current effective inertial force and, for example, support active suspension systems or the airbag controller with their measurements.
13 Seat controllers
Modern vehicle seats feature numerous adjustment possibilities. Various supports for the spine and sides can often be controlled, in addition to seat height and backrest angle.
14 Door controller
This controls locking and unlocking of the vehicle doors and more complex functions in public transit vehicles.
