SureFire 101 - Accurate fire timing and triggering

With dual stage airbag technology becoming more common, it is increasingly critical to ensure that the timing between firing the two stages is accurate and reliable. In addition, all of your timing measurements rely on knowing what is "time zero". An automated airbag test system will control the firing of your airbag, trigger your high speed video cameras and your high speed data acquisition equipment to ensure that you have a consistent time zero. With this important factor assured, you can take accurate time measurements of first movement, peak pressure, full inflation, and other performance parameters.
