    Safety Restraint Systems (SRS1-1)

    Quick Facts
    Course ID: SRS1-1
    Duration: 1 Day

    This seminar is novel, cutting edge and deals with technologies in current cars. The focus is on diagnostics, repairs and most importantly on safety
    for technicians working on the systems and safety of the car’s occupants.

    Detailed description of Safety Restraint Systems. This is a practical focussed one day training seminar.

    Some of the contents from our Safety Restraint Systems training.

    Following are some of the topics covered:

    1. Transition from old to new.
      A little bit of back ground of what used to be common place on the road and track. A little light hearted science about deceleration and force on a person involved in a car crash.

      Touching on reasons for the safety systems to be part of the WoF inspection procedure, and why in some countries wearing a seat belt is ‘not neccesary’…
      We look beyond the SRS and see which systems in the car are affected when SRS inflation occurs.

    2. System overview.
      What components are part of the SRS system, and divide the system into 4 parts, control unit, sensors, actuators, wiring for diagnostic reasons.
      We look at wiring diagrams, communication with other ECU in the car and with scanners.
      Power back up in the ECU and power down for safety of the technician.
      We check out several G force sensors, and how they can become unstable after a crash, even when the airbags have not been inflated, to stop unintended inflation for driver safety.
      Seat belt switches and seat pad sensors and what their role is, is covered

    3. Seat belt and airbag Ignitors.
      Ignitors, and the dangers unused Sodium Azide (explosive charge) poses if it touches your skin (technician safety).
      What gasses are escaping when the airbag inflates (occupant safety).
      How to carry and store unused airbags and seatbelt tensioners and how to deploy airbags in a to be scrapped car

      training manual pictures.

    4. Wiring loom.
      We look at the damage airbag inflation can do to a SRS wiring harness.
      How to safely hook up the airbag and wiring loom after parts have been disconnected.
      Normal clock spring failures and how to test and set up a clock spring in a vehicle

    5. Scantool diagnostics
      What does the data you get from a scanner mean and we look at the difference in life data between several car brands.
      Scantool actuator testing

      training manual pictures.
    6. Scope diagnostics
      What simple and quick measurement can you make and how does the SRS system determine the airbag resistance.
      What ignitor fault codes will be set at what trigger levels.

      training manual pictures.

    7. Customer assistance.
      What should you tell your customers to stay safe, and what can you do to increase occupant safety

    AECS is catering for all levels of diagnosticians, with Training, Equipment and Tech support.
    Our technical help desk is our way to keep our feet on the ground and the best way to find out what problems are out there.
    It helps us improve and create training seminars like the SRS 1-1. You won’t be bombarded with hours of boring theory,
    nor are we doing speed training (…). Our training is practical and most of all FUN.
    Hope to see you in one of our seminars this year!

    Please note: this seminar is SCOPE and Scantool based.
    The diagnostician can bring his/her own scope and scantool, or our high speed dual channel scopes (ATS) or Launch scantools can be used.
