Safety in series.
The eCall switch, as a control unit with button and cover flap, allows the user to make an emergency call and is fitted to the handlebars of motorcycles as an optional standard feature. In addition to an SOS button for manual activation, the housing also contains an integrated communication unit consisting of a loudspeaker and microphone. The eCall switch is installed in the immediate field of vision, the eCall switch also has an OEM-specific surface finish.
In an accident with motorcyclists involved, every second counts. We have placed special emphasis on functionality and durability during development. The eCall switch had to prove its reliability in extensive internal and external quality tests. Among other things also on specially developed test devices in our in-house validation centre.
Due to its installation directly on the motorcycle handlebars, the control element is exposed to various environmental influences and strong vibrations. By using our synthetic resin casting technology, we can guarantee optimum sealing and protection against corrosion. Certified to protection class IP 67 when the cover flap is open and to protection class IPX9K when it is closed.
For the eCall switch, we contributed experience from of our digades product dguard. Thus this customer-specific solution with its compact dimensions and low weight also benefits from our development know-how for motorcycle emergency call systems.
