Dytran Instruments, Inc. announces the release of the innovative
VibraScout 6DoF sensors for measurement and analysis of static and dynamic
Dytran’s Model 5384 VibraScout 6DoF (six degrees of freedom) sensor is an
innovative, cost-effective, plug-and-play, portable data acquisition
system containing an 8-pole elliptical anti-aliasing filter and measuring X, Y,
Z acceleration, along with roll, pitch and yaw.
The VibraScout 6DoF facilitates a broad range of tasks including in-field
data collection, Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH) studies, end-of-line
testing, static angular measurements, ride quality, vibration measurement and
diagnosis of rotating machinery. The VibraScout software simply needs to be
loaded on a laptop or tablet and the sensor cable plugged into the USB port.
VibraScout 6DoF can plot recorded data, zoom and select a specific
timeframe of recorded data for post-processing, reproduce interpolated
oversampled data to provide better resolution of vibration signals, and export
multiple file types including time data, FFT, PSD and CPB in CSV, JPG, UFF58,
and MAT LAB formats.
An Application Programming Interface (API) is available for customers
who would like to build custom applications for the VibraScout 6DoF. The API
provides support for any NET-compatible client application. Custom application
development is also available.
Key features of the VibraScout 6DoF include variable capacitance (VC)
triaxial accelerometer and gyroscopes protected inside a small, hermetically
sealed titanium housing weighing 25 grams; 0 Hz (DC) to 1,000 Hz frequency
range of accelerometer, and 0 to 140 Hz for the gyro sensor; and units ruggedised
to 3,000g shock.
