Early makes of vehicles were equipped with side windows which were operated by hydraulics or off the engine vacuum. As the automobile industry evolved, innovations were made and vehicle's features were enhanced. Among the innovations was the introduction of power windows or electric windows. By 1941, the first electric power windows were introduces which were operated by a small electric motor mounted inside the door.
From then on, the power windows were adopted and used in the automobile industry. Power windows are side windows which are raised and lowered by an electric motor. The convenience brought about by the power windows is an additional feature of vehicles nowadays. Newer designs came out that introduced the retained accessory power windows and the express down window. Basically, the power windows are operable only when the ignition system is active but in the retained accessory power windows, it allows the operation of the windows for several minutes even after the engine had stopped. In express down windows, it can be fully lowered or raised even without pressing the window switch until the windows retract.
The power windows are in contrast to the side windows before which were raised and lowered by rotating a hand-turned crank handle. The electric motor that drives the electric power windows is operated by a switch called the window switch. The Hyundai window switch is usually installed at the side of each window and another set of window switch at the driver's door for easy and accessible operation of the driver. In some car makes the center console is also loaded with window switches so that all the passengers have the access to operate the power windows. However, the power windows have been the cause of some fatal accidents that involved children being trapped and suffocated when they accidentally pressed the window switch while their head is leaned outside the window.
To prevent the recurrence of such accidents, car manufacturers made use of safety power windows which are operated by protective window switch. The protective window switches are designed to prevent the inadvertent closing of the power windows. Hyundai also made use of power window lock-out switch which causes all the electric power window switches inoperable except for the master control mounted on the driver's door. This endeavor of installing protective window switches was helpful in preventing fatal accidents to further recur.
