Depending of crash speed or the tightening of seat belt, it is decided a timing about both 2 firing squibs of airbag and 1 firing squib of active vent. At the moment of vehicles collisions, the firing squib of active vent make airbag distended and then consecutively leaked gases of airbag through a hole at once. These operations reduce an injury of the passenger's head. At first, the active vent sets a rapid deployment of airbag by keeping the pressure, after deployment of airbag it emits the gases of upper airbag. The Working Principle of Tether Cutter: When receive an electrical signal, Tether Cutter cuts a strap which is been attached Active vent in order to open a hole of upper airbag.
The working range of Active Vent
