The Ocean One systems, available from Hylec Controls , are dedicated hardware and software systems designed to implement the Durability Transfer Concept, a method of measure of the strain developed in various locations of vehicles as a result of acceleration or deceleration.
The Ocean (Online Counting and Evaluation Systems) recorders from SWIFT provide the online system for the long term measurement of forces on the under-carriage and the storage and analysis of measured data. The data loggers, which have been specifically developed for this purpose, perform online data reduction using virtual channels and a Rainflow Matrix over virtually unlimited durations. Data is analyzed to identify wheel loads, stresses and cutting loads at various locations of the vehicle.
The Ocean recorders include a hardware anti-aliasing filter of greater than 50 Hz, and are capable of measuring 1000 samples per sec per channel in 5 frequency bands and to resolve the data into 15 virtual Rainflow channels
The operating voltage of Ocean recorders is between 9 – 30 VDC, which can normally be extracted from the on-board power supply. Their small dimensions of 11 cm x 9 cm x 6 cm and the option of transferring data via mobile link allows the deployment in the smallest or most un-accessible of vehicles.
The Ocean One Recorders considerably reduce the efforts and costs related to long-term measurements as data from only one 3-D accelerometer are necessary.
Technical Features of the Ocean One Recorders:
• connection of external three-dimensional acceleration sensor

• 5 frequency bands
• 1 real and 15 vitual Rainflow channels
• 2D Time at Level Counting (TaL)
• 9 - 30 VDC power supply
• small sized (11cm x 9cm x 6cm)
• optional: wireless data transfer
