Housing for ESP® yaw rate sensor
The yaw rate sensor is part of the ESP® (electronic stability program) or ESC (electronic stability control) and measures the rotational movement of a body (in this case the vehicle) in all axes. Yaw rate sensors are also used in other applications, such as smartphones or game consoles. The MEMS-based sensors apply the principle of the so-called Coriolis force to detect the movements.
The modern housings made by 2E mechatronic provide effective protection for all sensitive electronics
Yaw rate sensor housings are manufactured by precision injection moulding. Their integration into fully automated production lines means that very large quantities can be produced at competitive prices. For smaller quantities in the commercial vehicle sector a semi-automatic concept has been developed that efficiently meets the respective quality requirements and reduces possible human error to a minimum. The yaw rate sensor is part of a safety-relevant system. For this reason, it is of paramount importance that both insertion and connection of the electronic components meet the highest quality standards. We constantly monitor the production process of our housings and subject every single one to testing for all possible major faults before they are sent on their way to the production sites of our global customers. In addition to ensuring dimensional accuracy of the housings, it is essential to avoid all metallic contamination in order to exclude the possibility that the customer’s miniaturized electronic components may malfunction. Gripper systems and tools must be optimally designed, coordinated and adjusted to each other to ensure that such a contamination is avoided.
