Kistler Introduces Industry Exclusive Corrsys-Datron Data Logger with Built-in GPS for Longitudinal Vehicle Dynamics Testing
Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - Kistler has announced the North American launch of the industry exclusive Corrsys-Datron model CDS-GPS, a high-performance data logger with built-in global positioning system (GPS) for longitudinal vehicle dynamics testing applications.
Offering full compatibility with other sensors within Kistler's Corrsys-Datron product range, the model CDS-GPS offers an update rate of 100 Hz with GPS signal output via CANBus. With simple and quick vehicle mounting capabilities, the model CDS-GPS provides high-accuracy measurements of absolute speed, travelled distance, latitudinal and longitudinal position, height, time and date, and system status information, such as the number of satellites, signal quality, and other factors, to a high degree of accuracy. The product's versatility and exceptional performance characteristics make it ideal for use within braking tests, acceleration and deceleration tests, fuel consumption assessments, tire validation, ABS brake testing, irregular brake-force balance monitoring and the optimization and fault diagnostics of other vehicle electronic control systems. In addition, units are programmed with predefined driving maneuvers for longitudinal dynamic measurements.
When coupled with appropriate Kistler sensors and instrumentation, such as wheel force transducers, sideslip angular sensors, rotational speed sensors, accelerometers and pressure transducers, the model CDS-GPS may also be used for extended transversal vehicle dynamics testing. For additional details, drawings and specifications on the model CDS-GPS or other products available from Corrsys-Datron, visit www.corrsys-datron.com.
Corrsys-Datron (www.corrsys-datron.com) is a global leader in the design and manufacture of vehicle dynamics measurement systems, including optical measurement technology for vehicle parameters such as longitudinal speed and distance, lateral speed, slip angle, dynamic camber angle and ride height. The advancement of Kistler's own proprietary CORREVIT® technology has allowed current generation sensors to provide more accuracy and precision than ever before. In addition to optical sensors, CDS offers measurement steering wheels, fuel flow meters, custom accelerometers and gyro modules, wheel positioning systems, pedal force measurements, data acquisition devices, GPS systems, microwave speed sensors and mounting solutions. Use of CDS optical speed sensors in combination with Kistler wheel force transducers allows for state-of-the-art measurement capabilities that are not available outside of Kistler group companies. These unique technologies allow Kistler customers to receive complete turnkey vehicle measurement solutions from a single source. CORREVIT® is a registered trademark of Kistler.
