ETLG Inertial Aerosystems is announcing a new impact testing accelerometer system. The data collected offers the same FFT analysis and display capabilities that are typically found on more expensive devices. The new Silicon Designs Model 3330 G-Logger system is now available through ETLG Inertial Aerosystems.

The system includes up to three 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 option, being powered by a single USB connection.

Users enjoy:

  • 16-bit data acquisition
  • Up to three 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 × 103mm × 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

The accelerometers can be purchased in two forms:

  • Up to three 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.
