SmartCrash barrier for Fiat safety center, Turin Italy

Kistler Instruments : 27 January, 2007  (Company News)
Fiat Safety Center in Turin (Italy) has signed a
Fiat Safety Center in Turin (Italy) has signed a “turn-key” order with Kistler to provide the facility with our SmartCrash Barrier. The complete instrumented impact surface is 2m x 1m. The SmartCrash barrier is split into two equal segments, each 64 triaxial force measuring elements with integral data acquisition and data storage. Kistler completes the scope of delivery with an additional offset block for EuroNCAP and different top plates for AZT 0° and 10° regulations.

One SmartCrash segment consists of our well accepted SmartCrash 500 kN triaxial standard force measuring elements, the other segment made with our newly developed ultra light weight crash elements rated 300 kN. Thanks to impressive saving in weight of about 60 %, they can be used also for crash trolleys.

This feature will be used for future developments in Fiat Safety Center, and hence the easily reconfigurable architecture to different crash standards was decisive in choosing of Kistler SmartCrash barrier.

Fiat Safety Center add to the list of European car manufacturer that has decided to use the instrumented Kistler crash barrier, including Volvo, Ford, DaimlerChrysler, Audi, BMW and PSA Peugeot-Citroën
