Original Press Release:
'MotionMaster(TM)' Six-Axis Acceleration Data Recorder
MotionMaster(TM) is a new, six-axis acceleration sensor/recorder that measures and records tri-axial linear acceleration as well as angular rates: three axis roll, pitch and yaw. This "first-of-its-kind" device is now being introduced by Instrumented Sensor Technology, Inc. (IST) of Okemos, MI USA. the leading designer and manufacturer of portable data recorders for dynamic environments.
The compact, 4.2" x 4.4" x 2.5" , MotionMaster(TM) is self battery powered for up to several days of recording operation. All acceleration sensors, electronics, and data storage capability are built into a single, shock hardened package. MotionMaster(TM) can measure and record linear accelerations ranging from 4 milli-Gs to 500 Gs, and angular rates ranging from 0.35 degree per second to 720 degrees per second.
The unit is supplied with eight megabyte of onboard memory for storing acceleration time history data. The unit can record and store continuous data over a time period ranging from eight minutes to 120 minutes, depending upon digitization rate. Alternatively the device can be set to capture readings only when thresholds are exceeded, and operate over time periods of up to several weeks. The MotionMaster(TM) is completely user-programmable for recording functions and triggering, and is also compatible with IST's DynaMax-Suite Windows analysis software for acceleration data downloading and analysis.
Target applications for MotionMaster(TM) include vehicular crash tests, amusement ride test and measurement for safety compliance, watercraft measurements, airborne vehicle measurements, shipping and handling environment measurement, and more.
