Over its fifty-two years of existence, SOC has spent considerable research efforts to ensure the safety of its customers, and has worked with Mitsubishi Motors for fifteen of those years on the development of highly reliable fuses for electric vehicles. The culmination of these efforts has been the successful clearing of the difficult technological requirements of the i-MiEV, including those for heat and vibration resistance. Having used its latest technology to improve the safety of Mitsubishi's vehicle, SOC is now turning its attention to meeting the next new generation of technological challenges.
