FCI launches the AK2+ ESD squib

FCI launches the AK2+ ESD squib; its latest innovation in airbag connector solutions.

AK2+ ESD (Electro Static Discharge) squib is the first commercially available airbag connector to integrate the grounding function within the squib connector itself.

Alongside enhancing reliability and cutting assembly costs, the AK2+ ESD squib eliminates potential misfiring caused by electrostatic discharge with completely integrated grounding. It thus allows safe traceability of grounding. Also, the new connector retains full compatibility with existing standards (AK, USCAR, ISO 19072-1) as well as FCI’s patented mate assist function, CPA (Connector Position Assurance).

“The new AK2+ ESD connector solution is the result of a partnership with VW/Audi and is due to be employed for the first time in a VW model scheduled for launch in early summer 2010. As an established leader in Safety Restraint Systems (SRS), FCI Motorized Vehicle division remains committed to listening to customer requirements”, explains Marcus Wierer, Director Global Sales & Marketing covering the FCI MVL Business Line SRS/High End Cable Assemblies (HECA).
