In accordance with the design assumptions, the housing of the controller is a thin-wall model owing to the low unit
weight requirement. Materials used for the housing guarantee optimal impact resistance while retaining this low weight. Both, the materials and shape of the housing, guarantee optimal functional properties for the controller with respect to thermal loads present in the engine compartment. Although the housing appears delicate, it is able to protect the electronic module against moisture and impact loads within the temperature range of -20°C - 120°C. In normal operating conditions, the housing is not exposed to permanent deformation, but only vibrations caused by the driving system and random impacts from gravel (sand, stones) on the roadway.
DURABILITY / RESISTANCE TO SCRATCHING
Under normal operating conditions, the housing is not exposed to continuous scratching with pens or sharp objects.
Scratches may affect the appearance, but they do not reduce housing parameters. Scratched plastic covers or stainless steel base plates are still resistant to corrosion.
The controller housing has been designed to ensure unit tightness in accordance with the requirements of the
applicable articles and UNECE regulations. Housing ingress protection is rated IP54 with the wiring connector plugged in. The housing is sealed only with the wiring connected (in normal operating conditions the connector is plugged in constantly). The curved shape of the housing is intended to compensate for deformations of housing elements in varying temperature conditions inside the engine compartment (thermal expansion of the housing).
The high-quality materials, the unique and innovative shape of the housing and the quality of the manufacturing process allow retention of the high aesthetic qualities of the unit. The housing cover is made of modern high-quality plastic with improved impact resistance and strength at a wide range of temperatures. The stainless steel base plate emphasizes the unique character of the housing.
