HEIM Data Acquisition Units

HEIM provides scalable highly customizable Data Acquisition Units (DAQ) for flight tests.

XMA

XMA, a Compact & Remote Data Acquisition Unit

With its small and high ruggedized design, XMA is the best fit for remote data acquisitions in harsh and small space areas. It is the perfect candidate for network telemetry applications and remote acquisitions, to reduce the wire intrusiveness, and acquire the data closer to the sensors. XMA also allows data recording, data processing, GPS localization and data transmission. XMA has the smallest size/channel types ratio, and proposes optimized module set for a large number of data type acquisitions, with state-of-the-art accuracy.

XMA-ROTOR

XMA-ROTOR, a Full Wireless Modular Acquisition System for Helicopter Rotor Heads

The XMA-ROTOR proposes high performance modules technology built in a mechanical housing dedicated to helicopter rotor head instrumentation. The XMA-ROTOR replaces legacy slip ring technology offering a full wireless/contactless link between the rotor and the stator. Power is transferred via inductive coupling. Acquired data, health monitoring information, configuration data and synchronization signals are transferred over a bi-directional radio link architecture.

Over the past three years, Airbus Helicopters and Safran Data Systems have worked closely to leverage flight test innovation for the Rapid and Cost-Effective Rotorcraft (RACER) program, a high-speed, high-efficiency helicopter demonstrator. It will be equipped with the XMA-ROTOR in the frame of HIRIS (Helicopter Innovative Rotating Instrumentation System) rotating wing instrumentation data acquisition system. RACER is funded by the European Commission’s H2020 research program, as part of Clean Sky 2.

XMA-BOX

XMA-BOX, a Multiple Channel Data Acquisition Unit

The XMA-BOX proposes high performance XMA modules technology in a cost effective 1U case. The XMA-BOX allows data acquisition of analog and digital signal and their processing and streaming in various instrumentation data format. Ideal for ground testing facilities, the XMA-BOX is also designed to cope with environmental conditions of small to large civil aircraft cabin. The XMA-BOX is the best fit for multiple data acquisition needs, as a single box or integrated in a larger FTI system all by ensuring state-of-the-art accuracy.
