Crash Sensor Housings and Feedthroughs

Product Description

A yaw rate sensor detects how fast a vehicle is turning on its own axes and whether, for example, it has started skidding or overturning. Crash sensors detect changes typical of accidents, such as vibration and sudden braking. The components of these sensors are extremely sensitive and require effective protection.

These sensors, which are generally installed in a vehicle’s interior in either the B-pillar or headliner, are extremely sensitive and must be effectively protected to enable continuously reliable operation. Our glass-to-metal sealed crash sensor housings provide the sensors with power while simultaneously protecting them with a hermetic seal.


Crash sensor feedthroughs hermetically seal components, supporting the maintained long-term function, accuracy, and precision of these sensitive electronic components. The current feedthroughs can be used for nearly all common sensor models and are manufactured according to customer requirements.


Rotation speed sensors are necessary for controlling and activating the electronic stability control unit (ESC). In the USA, the use of ESCs in new vehicles are required since 2011.

Other areas of potential application include navigation systems, where gyro sensors can provide data, for example, on navigating corners in the absence of satellite signals when maneuvering through tunnels etc.

Technical Details


To support the reliable hermeticity of crash sensor housing components, glass-to-metal sealing technology is used. Please click on this page for more information.

Our crash sensor feedthroughs are manufactured in pressure glazing technique and can be plated with nickel and gold according to customer requirements.
