XMA-ROTOR, a wireless modular acquisition system for helicopter rotor heads

XMA-ROTOR offers high performance XMA modules technology integrated in a mechanical housing dedicated to helicopter rotor instrumentation. Designed by Safran Data Systems, the XMA-ROTOR replaces legacy slip ring technology offering a full wireless/contactless link between the rotor and the stator.


No slip ring, low intrusive and maintenance-free technology


Up to 120 strain gages or accelerometers, or 240 temperatures or any combinations


Low uncertainty down to 200ppm Typical and high synchronization lower than 100ns

The XMA-ROTOR, as a standard XMA stack, is scalable and can host from 2 to 16 XMA wireless modules of various kinds: analog, digital, discrete, video… The XMA-ROTOR is designed to cope with environmental conditions of civil and military rotorcraft. Designed to operate seamlessly with existing flight test systems, the XMA-ROTOR is configured and managed as standard XMA stack and is fully compatible with Safran Data Systems architecture.
