Automotive anti-pinch power window system is a safety system that is employed in power windows of modern vehicles. The anti pinch technology is actually a safety feature in an automobile and it prevents the winding up of power windows, on sensing any obstacle in the path of the glass. The use of this technology is mandated in many countries across the globe. Power windows have increasingly gained popularity and are now found commonly on even budget vehicles. With the growing popularity of these windows, some fatal safety concerns regarding their use have come under focus.
The risk arises in case of power windows which are even programmed to operate with the need of pressing a switch. In cases where the power window is equipped with anti-pinch technology, the electric motor in the power window comes fitted with a sensor. This sensor is capable of sensing the resistive force acting against the motion of the glass, thereby preventing accidents. On detecting the obstruction, the winding action of the power window stops at once and the window starts to operate in a reverse direction. Therefore, this technology helps to bring down the window to avoid any injury to the occupant.
One of the primary factors driving the market growth of the automotive anti-pinch power window systems is the increasing use of automotive safety systems. Advanced safety and security features in automobiles are no longer limited to only premium vehicles. Electronic equipment is also being installed in entry-level, standard vehicles that are high in demand in the emerging nations.
