Race technology’s DL1 data logger from Metromatics has come with 20Hz GPS and drift angle measurement options. A 6g accelerometer option is also available and all options can be used individually or in combination.
As standard the DL1 data logger features a 3 axis accelerometer to measure:
- Braking and acceleration g force (longitudinal acceleration)
- Cornering g force (lateral acceleration)
- Up/down g force (vertical acceleration)
The maximum g force that can be measured in any axis with a standard DL1 data logger is 2g. This is enough for any racing application, where there are no large aerodynamic aids. For applications with large wings the 6g option is recommended.
