In the challenging automotive environment, protection against outside water and dirt is key, while a stable pressure compensation or active venting function is needed to avoid damage or even failure of electronic components over the vehicle’s lifetime. Oxyphen’s products are used widely to protect all kinds of sensors and actuators with various housing types in all vehicles.
Oxyphen has the technology and products to solve your automotive venting needs with high quality to protect your electronics parts over their lifetime. With our experience for automotive and electronic applications, we have the expertise to choose the best membrane solution from our existing and approved portfolio or develop a customized solution for your individual requirements.
Electronic and sensor housing protection
Small lamps and side indicator lamps
Small electronic housings – especially sensor housings – need maximum protection against water and dust/dirt; however the gas flow should be minimal to avoid the transport of water molecules.
Sensors fulfill a very sensitive function within the automotive infrastructure, which require membranes to secure their housing with highly defined and stable characteristics.
The Oxyphen membrane technology enables a very uniform gas flow while simultaneously mazimizing protection against outer media.
Venting applications are increasingly more important in the automotive segment. Headlamp assembly systems require a specific airflow in order to cool the system and to prevent condensation of moisture; however, liquids and dirt particles are not allowed to enter the lamp assembly. This challenge can be easily solved with our hydrophobic fiber-based membranes.
Venting and protection solutions for battery technology/battery packs are critical in the current automotive landscape. The technical challenge for these applications can best be solved with our hydrophobic membranes. Pressure balancing in combination with water tightness is a requirement for large and small scale battery pack systems. In addition, safety features such as blow-by function in case of cell defect can be incorporated into a venting system.
Avoid fogging and cracks on the housing of small lamps like side indicators or fog lamps that are directly exposed to the harsh outer weather conditions due to their mounting spots directly on the vehicle’s exterior.
