Schreiner ProTech, a Germany-based global leader in developing and
manufacturing innovative functional labels with value-added benefits for the
automotive and engineering-based industries, now supplies
ultrasonically-welded pressure compensation seal (PCS) membranes for a
prominent manufacturer of camera-assisted parking system components.
Now standard on a wide range of vehicles, external cameras on mirrors, front
grills, or tailgates assist drivers with parking by providing 360-degree
views of their surroundings. For these systems, components called ICAM plug
connectors help ensure stable, trouble-free connection between cameras,
electrical components, and the driver interface. Based in Baden-Württemberg,
Germany, /H&B/ Electronic now manufactures ICAM plug connectors equipped
with protective PCS membranes from Schreiner ProTech.
To protect its 8-pin connectors, /H&B/ Electronic employs a two-tiered
approach. First, a specialty seal using liquid silicone (LSR) acts as an
effective barrier against water and dust. Second, Schreiner ProTech’s
pressure compensation seals provide protection against excess pressure. The
benefits of Schreiner ProTech’s small membranes include low unit costs and
minimal installed height. Further, the flexible, film-based structure of the
pressure compensation seals means suitable membranes can be supplied for
practically any application.
/H&B/ Electronic has more than 30 years of experience in complex plug
connectors and fully automated manufacturing processes. However, the ICAM
connector was its first product utilizing an LSR seal. This meant that close
collaboration with Schreiner ProTech’s team was crucial.
“The interaction with /H&B/ was very constructive, and based on mutual
trust,” says Nils Herzberger from Schreiner ProTech. “We developed an
ultrasonically welded solution for the customer, and are pleased to see that
the pressure protection our membranes offer fit well with their needs.”
To date, more than 18 million ICAM plugs have incorporated Schreiner
ProTech’s PCS solutions.
