Customised heaters for every specific rear-view mirror

Customized heating elements

Flexible, lightweight and space-saving

Flexible heating elements, or foil elements, offer many advantages in addition to the fact that the material is flexible. Examples include the ability to have multiple circuits or multiple voltages in the same element, or the ease of locating a sensor.

Foil elements are a space-saving, efficient alternative to applications where precise heat and the maintenance of an exact temperature are important. They are supplied in various materials such polyimide, polyester, silicone, PTC and mica.

Front view camera heaters

We offer different type of heaters, both heaters using convection to heat up the camera field of view as well as heaters using heat transfer in the glass to clear the camera field of view. Commonly used for lane assist, collision warning, keeping distance to other vehicles etc.

Wrap around lens heater

Can be mounted either as a wrap-around on the lens barrel, or in the very front around the lens. We want to have the heater as close to the lens as possible in order to achieve good performance and fast deicing of the lens to clear the camera’s field of view. Commonly used for blind-spot monitoring or cross-traffic alert.
