English term or phrase:pyrotechnic actuator
Новая рулевая колонка поглощает до 20% энергии при ударе за счет pyrotechnic actuator - я не могу понять, что это за устройство... при чем тут пиротехника?....
The steering column greatly reduces the impact of a crash on the upper body by absorbing up to 20% of the driver's energy during a collision. Based on a variety of inputs including driver weight and size, seat belt usage, speed and crash severity, the column has the potential to adapt its energy absorbing settings for drivers of all sizes.
On Ford's new 2005 full-size sedans, Delphi's active energy absorbing device will use a pyrotechnic actuator to optimise the energy absorbed prior to a collision by responding to seat position and seat belt usage. The active energy absorbing steering column will act in conjunction with a dual-stage airbag as part of an integrated safety system to help protect drivers.
