This section provides an overview of Microsys products made
for independent testing of airbag inflators. The
test product range
Inflator Test Tanks -
Microsys inflator test tanks lead the
industry in terms of features and productivity.
For example, the Microsys iTank includes a
submarine style door for easy access without the need for power
tools. A water cooling jacket allows for very fast test cycle
times by rapidly bringing the tank wall temperature back to
Size availability include 28.3L (1 cubic
foot) and 60L, as well as several other popular sizes.
Microsys iTanks are designed to operate both independently or
conjunction with the SureFire Inflator Test System.
More information about how Microsys iTanks may be right for
you is available here.
Inflator Test System - In brief
The SureFire Inflator Test System performs a safe, controlled
firing of an inflator within a
test tank. Squib firing pulses are easily adjusted within
SureFire and can be quickly recalled by selecting the
appropriate test profile. SureFire will typically record data
from one or more pressure sensors along with squib current and
squib voltage readback. High speed data acquisition of squib
voltage and current enables a detailed analysis of ignition
and energy transfer, critical to understand the underlying
reasons for inflator performance.
SureFire customers for inflator
testing include most major
airbag and inflator manufacturers. These customers benefit from the
highest levels of test productivity in the industry.

Microsys cold gas inflation test system - In brief
The Microsys cold gas airbag inflation system is used to
inflate airbags using compressed air, effectively simulating
an airbag inflator. There
are 2 primary applications for the Microsys Cold Gas System:
#1 - To replace an actual airbag inflator for airbag deployment
In this mode the Microsys Cold Gas System is an inexpensive,
adjustable and repeatable substitute for an actual inflator.
manufacturers use this product for airbag module
development. Replacing the inflator and it's variability
with the Microsys cold gas system results in a better design
and shorter design cycles. It also reduces the cost of
design as the Microsys cold gas system consumables cost is
only a fraction the cost of an inflator.
panel and seat suppliers use the Microsys Cold Gas System to
reduce the cost of LAT/COP testing of their products.
#2 - To develop performance specifications for a cold gas inflator
In this mode the Microsys Cold Gas System is a development
tool that saves both time and money.
Airbag manufacturers use this product for airbag
module development. The cold gas system output can be
quickly and easily adjusted to achieve the desired airbag
module performance, then used to determine the inflator
