Product design involves a number of safety checks, whether the designer is working on a consumer item or an industrial product.
Designers are increasingly interested in measuring the potential injury that would be caused by an accidental impact, to ensure their products are safer than ever and meet required standards..
ETLG Inertial Aerosystems is pleased to announce a new impact testing accelerometer system to support these aims. The data collected offers the same FFT analysis and display capabilities that are typically found on more expensive devices.
About the Accelerometer System
The new Silicon Designs Model 3330 G-Logger system is now available through ETLG Inertial Aerosystems.
The system includes up to 3 accelerometers, either single axis, or 3 axis, combined in a rugged enclosure that is connected to a data logging module This compact, portable and highly robust system can be used for repeatable tests. It is an inexpensive and versatile solution, being powered by a single USB connection.
• 16-bit data acquisition
• Up to 3 separate input channels
• Data rates of 1 to 10k samples per second, and per axis, through each input channel
• Details of individual acceleration or shock events
• Intuitive data readout build on a user-friendly NI LabVIEW® platform
• Real-time data acquisition and readout with live streaming
• Real-time pause, scroll back and rewind
• Simple G readings
• The ability to show or hide any of the three channels in real time
• A compact footprint (120mm x 103mm x 30mm, excluding accelerometers)
• Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8 software compatibility
• 3m cabling between logger and sensors, with provision for up to 15m
• Set-up in five minutes or fewer
Purchasing and Using the Model 3330 G-Logger
The accelerometers can be purchased in two forms:
• Up to 3 standalone, single axis modules.
• As an integrated triaxial, orthogonally mounted module.
The data acquisition module connects via cables to both modules types.
Fixed full scale ranges from +/- 2g to +/- 200g, with up to 2000g overload survival are on offer..
Users do not need to purchase a separate power supply unit for the accelerometer, since power is drawn through the USB connection.
