Feedthroughs for Airbags and Seatbelts

A combination of quality materials and exacting tests means SCHOTT achieves top levels of reliability for its safety device components. Whether it’s feedthroughs for airbag ignitors and seatbelt pretensioners or circuit breakers, we pride ourselves on the technical qualities of our electronic packaging.

Strong, secure, dependable and safe

Tiny but tough

SCHOTT’s glass and metal feedthroughs are incredibly robust and can withstand pressures of up to 4,000 bar. Fused-in pins inside the housings can have torques of up to 400 Newtons.

Material options

As well as the tough steel construction of regular feedthroughs, SCHOTT also offers the option for nickel and gold plating, which meet the very latest automotive industry standards.

Rigorous testing

SCHOTT Feedthroughs and Housings undergo intensive technical trials, including rigorous tests for hermeticity, electrical insulation, lead fatigue, visual and dimensional examination, solderability, and thermal shock.

Quality means safety

SCHOTT understands the importance of high standards throughout the production process, and our Electronic Packaging division maintains a comprehensive quality management system that’s been certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001: 2008 since 1992.
