Sensor + Test 2019: Sensor aids life-cycle testing

Collecting pitch, roll and yaw data on test articles with tight size or weight restrictions just got easier, according to DTS. The ultra-small ARS3 PRO delivers precision angular velocity measurements, even in excessive shock and vibration environments and will be on show at Sensor + Test 2019

Unlike an accelerometer that measures linear motion, the ARS3 PRO measures high rates of angular velocity.

From lever durability to life-cycle testing of a car door or RPM of a driveshaft, the ARS3 PRO is designed to be positioned near the point of interest. It’s also ideal for collecting in-situ data on helmets and sports gear like hockey sticks, without altering the CoG or test dynamics.

The aluminum 19 x 19 x 12.5 mm enclosure is IP67 rated, weighs only 9 grams and is shock rated to 10,000 g. The triaxial package is 50% smaller and 40% lighter than even three DTS ARS PRO uniaxial sensors on a mounting block.

Available in ranges from ±300 to 50K deg/sec and in multiple bandwidths, the ARS3 PRO features DC response and shunt check capabilities.
