Abstract : An apparatus is disclosed for transmitting electric and pneumatic signals from a high speed rotating test item. All of the sensor wires having electric signals from strain and/or temperature sensors are converted to stationary wires by a slipring assembly. A pneumatic tube is selected for output by a multichannel pressure select valve. This selected pneumatic tube is passed through the slipring assembly to a stationary transducer that converts the pneumatic signal to an electric signal on a stationary wire.
