The e-Sensing product line from DTS includes the 6DX combined sensor package, which incorporates three linear accelerometers and three angular rate sensors in a single, compact package that is 28 mm (1.1 in) square and 17 mm (0.67 in) high. The six channels of output provide the data to calculate an acceleration vector and track its orientation in space with time and, with the appropriate post-processing calculations, plot the kinematic motion of a test piece in three-dimensional space. The ruggedized unit is designed for high-speed impact environments and has a 6000 g shock rating. The built-in connectors make the unit especially durable where cable damage does not retire the entire sensor package. Applications in vehicle testing include crash impacts, rollover, suspension, and ride and handling. Other applications include testing of off-road and construction vehicles, motorcycles, marine, motorsports, and human motion measurement.
