The ARS3 PRO triaxial angular rate sensor from DTS (Diversified Technical Systems, Inc.) permits measuring the durability of a lever or capturing driveshaft speed in a manufacturing machine without the need for a slip-ring. According to DTS, lifecycle product testing, for instance with a car door, is easy and portable with embedded DAS and a tiny sensor. Measuring 19 x 19 x 12.5 mm (0.75 x 0.75 x 0.49 in) with a weight of 9 g (0.35 oz), the ARS3 PRO is suitable for high-energy applications such as vehicle crash safety, in-dummy testing, human impact studies, and aerospace and ballistics measurements. Unlike an accelerometer that measures linear motion, the ARS3 PRO can be used to quantify virtually any object’s position in space, which starts with angular rate measurement. The ARS3 PRO makes it easy to accurately measure high rates of angular velocity, even in excessive shock and vibration environments, claims the company.
