NexGen Electronics Module
In the event of an otherwise survivable accident, AmSafe's Airbag and Pretensioner Systems protects passengers of all sizes from traumatic head and neck injury.
The NexGen Electronics Module Assembly is battery powered with a 10 year service life, push-to-test system diagnostics and optional wireless diagnostics that can check the status of the entire aircraft airbag systems in minutes.
The NexGen Electronics Module Assembly
All AmSafe’s airbag and pretensioner systems are controlled by the NexGen Electronics Module Assembly (EMA).
The EMA is comprised of the system electronics, crash sensors and an advanced, non-rechargeable lithium battery. The sensor and electronics detects and analyzes decelerations.
The airbag or pretensioner will not deploy inadvertently during normal operations such as a hard landing, random vibration or food cart strikes on the seat.
Deployment will occur, however, when a force is at or above 6gs for approximately 50 milliseconds. The EMA has a battery life of 10 years. The EMA can control up to 3 inflators or 3 pretensioners.
The airbag inflator consists of a compressed gas cylinder optimized for the aviation environment and the airbag size. The inflator has a life limit of 10 years.
Cable Interface Assembly
The cable interface assembly connects the EMA to the inflator or pretensioner.
AmSafe airbag and pretensioner system diagnostics need to be performed at 4,000 flight hours for commercial aircraft applications. All NexGen diagnostics are performed by pushing the test button on the EMA or by using AmSafe wireless software to check the entire cabin at one time without accessing the EMAs.
