KOREAN EXPO NEWS: Digital 6DOF sensor for fast data acquisition


Visitors to Automotive Testing Expo Korea 2015 are being given the chance to learn more about the next-generation VibraScout, digital 6DOF sensor from Dytran Instruments. It combines a triaxial MEMS accelerometer, triaxial gyroscope and onboard temperature sensor with a microcontroller to create a smart sensor. The VibraScout 6D is a USB-powered, plug-and-play, cost-effective and portable data acquisition system, where users can quickly and easily measure X, Y, X acceleration, roll, pitch, yaw and temperature, using a laptop or tablet.

The Dytran model 5346A is a unique solution for fast, portable and cost-effective vibration surveys and data acquisition. The system stores acceleration, gyro and temperature information, and the built-in firmware handles USB communication and provides a number of unique features including storage of device serial number and storage of accelerometer, gyro and temperature calibration data.

The accelerometer contains a variable capacitance (VC) MEMS chip with USB interface. The sensor is hermetically sealed in a titanium housing weighing 13g, meaning it can be used in harsh environments from test tracks to field monitoring. The frequency range of the VibraScout 6D accelerometer is 0Hz (DC) to 1,100Hz; and the gyroscope is 0Hz to 250Hz. Units can withstand 10,000g shock. The show is being held at Korea International Exhibition Center until 19 March. Visitors will find Dytran on booth 1038.
