New Ultra-small Six Degrees of Freedom Sensor from DTS Measures Three Axis of Acceleration and Three Axis of Angular Rate
– Ruggedized unit is designed for high-speed impact test and monitoring applications –
The six channels of output from the 6DX provide the necessary data to calculate an acceleration vector and track its orientation in space with respect to time with appropriate post-processing calculations, and plot the kinematic motion of a test piece in 3D space. The ruggedized unit is designed for high-speed impact environments and has a 6000g shock rating. Built-in 16-pin micro circular connectors make the unit highly durable and replacement of cables easy.
The internal linear accelerometers are full bridge piezo-resistive devices with a constant (DC) response, available in ranges from +/-20g to 6,000g to meet the specific requirements of various applications. The internal angular rate sensors are available in ranges from +/-300 to 50,000deg/sec and also have DC response. The sensor output can be recorded by any standard data acquisition system.
The DTS 6DX is ideal for test and monitoring needs of vehicles, such as crash impacts, rollover, suspension and ride and handling, as well as other high speed, harsh environment applications such as product testing of sports equipment, off-road and construction vehicles, motorcycles, marine, motorsports and aerospace. The DTS 6DX can also be used for human motion measurement, particularly in high-injury-risk occupations.
This new product can be combined with the e-SENSING SLICE MICRO(TM) or SLICE NANO(TM) data recorders to create a self-contained data acquisition system that enables testing in locations and conditions never before possible. For example, a 6DX+SLICE system with an internal battery could be mounted to a bicycle wheel (no slip-rings necessary) to provide a DAS solution so small that dynamic properties of the test piece are not impacted.
DTS is the world leader in the design and manufacture of high speed data recorders used in product testing for crash and injury assessment. The company is based in
