Our products belong to the wide field of mechatronics. What they have in common is the combination of very diverse materials used to meet electrical and mechanical requirements. All products are designed for outstanding functionality, durability, energy efficiency and all this at optimized costs.
IGB Automotive is one of the global market leaders for electric seat heaters. We develop and manufacture seat heaters that offer optimum thermal comfort for the respective class of vehicle.
More time spent in the vehicle – whether due to longer journeys or traffic density in urban areas – leads to the demand for a comfortable seating climate. A seat with surface ventilation plays a significant role.
Interior surface heaters
Underway with energy-saving or zero-emission vehicles: Auxiliary heaters in the interior provide comfort at low outside temperatures. The heaters developed by IGB comfortably and efficiently warm up all surfaces with which a customer comes into contact.
Steering wheel heaters and sensors
Until recently still reserved for luxury vehicles, steering wheel heaters can now be found in many high-volume models, even in the compact class. This makes unpleasantly icy cold steering wheels a thing of the past in frosty outside temperatures …
As a specialist in seat comfort, it was an obvious step for IGB Automotive to become involved with sensors that are used in the seat to detect occupancy. Depending on the application, the sensor must meet different requirements in terms of accuracy and reproducibility. For this reason, there are different sensor concepts and associated control units for monitoring comfort functions, seatbelt reminder or airbag control. The idea of combining the sensor with the electric seat heating system was developed by IGB Automotive and implemented in series production.
