Autotronics » Safety

Constantly evolving vehicles have created the need for more car safety features than vehicles of the past. As cars become faster and more efficient, they must also become safer. Drivers are protected by more car safety features than ever, including shatter resistant glass (providing a windshield that breaks into numerous, harmless pieces in the event of an accident), seatbelts, airbags, anti-lock brakes (solving the skidding problem and also allowing the driver to maintain control of steering, while braking on slick surfaces), stability control (allowing the driver to avoid dangerous rollover accidents, by the computer helping to compensate for the amount of over steer by sending power to different wheels), lights (are essential three main types for any vehicle: break lights, turn lights and headlights), mirrors (a proper alignment of mirrors ensures high visibility and eliminates the blind spots), bumpers (perhaps the most primitive of safety features, built to with standing minor collisions and can prevent damage to the main body and engine of the car), four wheel steering (offers precise maneuvering ability while driving at a high speed, especially useful on hilly areas), pre-collision technology (modern day cars have sensors that provide impact protection when an impending collision is detected; seatbelts get tighter, airbags align and brakes become preloaded to reduce shock) and more. There are two trainers designed by De Lorenzo that can cover this field, one simulator and one demonstrator. The simulation panel allows the testing and the troubleshooting on the passive devices developed with the purpose to increase the driver and passenger’s safety inside motorcars analyzing airbags (driver, passenger, side and window), belts tension relay, fuel shut-off inertia switch and multi-function valve in the fuel tank. A fault simulator, for troubleshooting, is provided and it can be interfaced to personal computer through a CAI software. The demonstrator panel represents an airbag system construction, with real components, allowing the evaluation of a typical Supplemental Restraint System controller (SRS – the proper name for the airbag in a vehicle) with a frontal airbag, a passenger’s airbag, side airbags, tensioners and sensors of side crashers. It includes a fault simulation console to perform troubleshooting on many principle parts of the trainer. They are recommended for professional institutes, vocational schools and technical colleges.

Products Details


This simulation panel allows the testing and the troubleshooting on the devices developed with the purpose of increasing the safety of driver and passengers inside motorcars.
• Dim. mm approx (HxLxW) : 700x1000x150 - (470 with the base)
• Weight approx. kg 25
• Input power supply: AC 220V±10% 50 Hz
• Working temperature: -40℃ ~ +50℃.
The simulator considers all those systems to allow the reduction of the consequences of accidents; in particular, the following devices are analyzed:
• air-bag (driver-bag, passenger-bag, side-bag,
• window-bag)
• safety belts tension relay
• fuel shut-off inertial switch
• multi-function valve in the fuel tank
This vertical frame bench-top trainer is specially designed to show to students how automotive systems work.
The simulator consists of a panel operated by the support of a computer with a coloured silk-screen diagram that clearly shows the structure of the system and allows the location of the components on it.
The display of the information available on the computer screen allows the continuous control of the educational system.
The operational conditions can be entered by the students and the insertion of faults can be carried out through the computer by the teacher.
The trainer is supplied with a CAI Software and the supported documentation guides the students to the study and the performance of the simulation exercises.
All components installed and given leads are made to protect the safety of the students.



This demonstration panel represents the AIRBAG system construction allowing evaluation of its parameters.
The elements of a typical SRS system are a system controller, a frontal airbag, a passenger’s airbag, side airbags, tensioners and sensors of side crashes.
