It was developed as a cost-effective method of 16g compliance for difficult-to-certifyseat placements. AmSafe has improved on this state-of-the-art technology and developed anew version of the airbag system. The design is sleek, is substantially light in weight, containsbuilt-in test equipment diagnostics, and is optimised to support the full class of serviceinstallations and fleet-wide retrofits.Just like the original design, the new Seatbelt Airbag looks and operates like a standard AmSaferestraint. In the unlikely event of an otherwise survivable accident, an inflatable bag stored inthe lap belt portion of the seatbelt protects passengers of all sizes from traumatic head andneck injury. The Seatbelt Airbag has been in service for over 10 years and has become themost accepted technology solution used to certify challenging seat configurations for over 70airlines.The New AmSafe Seatbelt Airbag System• Is 30 percent lighter in weight• Has sleek design improvements, including compact airbag lap belt packaging and a newcontemporary-style buckle• Has an increased service life (more than 40 percent)• Contains on-board diagnostics—manually or through an integrated wireless systemIn addition to the above improvements, the AmSafe Seatbelt Airbag• Meets the 16g requirement for commercial passenger seats• Is a complete solution for FAR/CS/25.562, Head Injury Criteria (HIC), FAR/CS/25.785, andside-facing protection requirements• Has been proven to be the most cost-effective solution for compliance with the 2009 16g ruling• Meets commercial g-force requirements: 16g/part 121 crash worthiness standards


The new AmSafeSeatbelt Airbagsystem is light, sleek,and equipped withon-board diagnosticsthat can supportfleet-wide retrofits.QuickZip for Container DoorsThe AmSafe Seatbelt Airbag is a self-contained, modular restraint system. It contains thefollowing four core components:• Seatbelt Airbag Assembly—When sensing the predetermined activation threshold, theairbag is deployed, cushioning the passenger. Deflating within milliseconds, the systemdoes not impede passenger egress.• Inflator Assembly—The inflator consists of a compressed gas cylinder and gas nozzleoptimised for the aviation environment. The inflator has a life limit of 10 years.• Electronics Module Assembly (EMA) —EMA is comprised of the system electronics, crashsensors, and an advanced lithium battery. The sensor and electronics module detects andanalyzes decelerations. The airbag will not deploy inadvertently during normal operationssuch as hard landing, random vibration, or food cart strikes on the seat. Deployment willoccur; however, when a force is at or above 9g’s for approximately 50 milliseconds. TheEMA has a life limit of 10 years.• Cable Interface Assembly—The cable interface assembly contains electrical connectors forthe EMA, and Inflator.Maintenance & RetrofitAmSafe Seatbelt Airbag system function diagnostics need to be performed at 4,000 flight hoursfor commercial applications. All maintenance procedures and diagnostics are performed bypushing the test button on the EMA or by using the wireless software from AmSafe. Trainedtechnicians can easily perform the test. The AmSafe Seatbelt Airbag can be retrofitted intoexisting aircraft seats for carriers looking to modify or upgrade their interiors.For further information about our products and services, visit our web-site at: www.amsafe.comEmail: sales-airbags@amsafe.comNorth AmericaT: 1 602 850 2850F: 1 602 850 2812EuropeT: 44 (0) 208 754 2700F: 44 (0) 208 754 2799A4 01-12 AIRBAG© 2012 AmSafe, Inc.
