Tri-Axial Accelerometer Released by Texas Aerospace Technologies

Smaller, Lighter, More accurate Gravitational and Inertial Measurement System Unveiled at AEA

Texas Aerospace Technologies availed themselves of the AEA show to launch their new TXA201 Tri-Axial Accelerometer.

The sensor takes advantage of improvements in micro-electromechanical systems, resulting in a tiny, compact, but robust sensor to convert gravitational and inertial forces into a DC voltage output for each of the three axes. The TXA201 has outputs for lateral, longitudinal, and vertical feeds ideally suited for Flight Data Recorders and Flight Data Acquisition Units. The sensor is made to be a simple, "plug and play" system compatible with any ARINC 542A form factor, with a pin for pin connector for simpler installation.

 The TXA201 is designed to meet ED-112A cockpit voice recorder crash standards, as well as rigorous DO-160G standards. The sensor will be TSO certified to the latest flight data recorder requirements for TSO-C124c, with full certification expected in June 2022. Texas Aerospace hopes that units will be available to ship almost immediately following TSO certification. 

“Texas Aerospace Technologies is excited to launch the TXA201 Tri-Axial Accelerometer to our customers. This unit brings forward new technologies into the accelerometer market for use with Flight Data Recorders and Flight Data Acquisition Units and highlights to our customers and partners our commitment to advancing the safety of flight.” said Brad Sutphin, vice president of Texas Aerospace Technologies.
