When it comes to measuring high rates of shock and angular velocity for crash, blast and impact testing, the 6DX PRO may fit the need. These sensors come in a shock-hardened enclosure that’s as small as the diameter of a penny. Weighing only 12 g, they terminate to a single triaxial connector.
The six degrees-of-freedom sensor includes three accelerometers (±2,000 or 20,000 g) and three angular rate sensors (±300, 1500, 8K, 18K or 50K deg/sec) in a rugged enclosure that is less than 3⁄4 in3 (19 x 19 x 14.5 mm). Focused on human injury assessment testing, the sensor is shock rated up to 20,000 g and is IP67 rated.
Testing applications include: helmet testing, automotive safety, airplane seats, parachutes, amusement rides and blast testing. The 6DX PRO is delivered calibrated with pigtail or adapter cables to support a variety of termination options. It’s repairable if damaged and meets NHTSA, FAA, ISO 6487 and SAE J211 data acquisition requirements.
