SureFire Airbag Deployment Test System

Any company that produces airbags or a vehicle component that interacts with airbags use SureFire to ensure the design and quality of their product. The SureFire airbag deployment system is the oldest and most popular product that Microsys offers with over 100 installations since 1992. It also reduces the cost of design as the Microsys cold gas system consumables cost is only a fraction the cost of an inflator.

Products Overview

High speed data acquisition of squib voltage and current enables a detailed analysis of ignition and energy transfer, critical to understand the underlying reasons for inflator performance. For many years customers asked if Microsys could help them improve the productivity of their barrier and sled testing process just as SureFire had done so successfully for airbag testing.

Cold Gas Inflation System

The Microsys Cold Gas System allows adjustments in gas quantity from 0.5 to 8 moles, and has a speed adjustment to cover the full range of known airbag inflators. The Cold Gas System settings would be adjusted until the test tank pressure curve is equivalent to the pressure curve of the inflator it is replacing.
