H-Point Manikin

  • Standard H-Point Manikin TE-HPM
  • H-Point Manikin w/ Measuring Head TE-HPM-MK

The H-Point-Manikin (TE-HPM) is an essential tool for the correct measurements and dummy positioning for many test applications. The HPM fulfills the SAE J826 (11-2008) as well as the recommended VDA 304 (01-2010) requirements. In combination with the Measuring Head (TE-MK) model, the user gets the most accurate solution available. The H-point is used as a key reference point in seated occupant location, seating package configurations, EPA volumes, and crash test positioning. The HPM II H-point machine provides the physical representation of this reference point and is a vital element for design, auditing and benchmarking of seating and interior packages. The HPM II machine is used in conjunction with J 4002 rev. Aug. 2005, which includes many design changes and enhancements over the OSCAR H-Point machine. This new design includes reformed shells for a consistent and reliable fit in bucket seats, articulating back for lumber support measurement, the ability to measure H-point without the use of the leg, and a better design for ease of installation.
