Dytran Instruments, Inc. has introduced a robust family of analogue 6DOF
vibration accelerometers for use in a range of motion testing applications.
Series 7576A is a family of high performance, analogue 6DOF (six degrees
of freedom) motion sensors containing three MEMS-based single axis
accelerometers and three MEMS-based gyros to monitor the translational and
rotational components of motion at the same physical point. This helps
determine the location of the centre of rotation of a rigid body inside space.
Compact and cost effective, Dytran’s new titanium sealed sensors meet
some of the most challenging real-world 6DOF application needs, including
laboratory weather-exposed test track and laboratory environmental simulation
Key features of Series 7576A 6DOF motion sensors include separate MEMS
chip utilised for each acceleration and angular rate channel; high drive,
low-impedance buffering for measuring acceleration and angular velocity in
commercial and industrial environments; variety of ranges to accommodate different
motion applications; and sensors powered by any power supply capable of
producing voltages from 5 to 30 VDC with at least 12 mA of current.
Depending on the measurement, the voltage output from the sensor can
swing around 2.5 Volts, as low as 0 volts and as high as 5 Volts.
Series 7576A 6DOF motion sensors find use in a broad range of test
applications such as vehicle dynamics, ride and handling, roll over, automotive
safety, aerospace testing, large machinery including industrial off-road,
aircraft flight dynamics, aircraft ground test, helicopter evaluation,
amusement ride, and playground surface investigation.
A leading manufacturer of piezoelectric and DC MEMS accelerometers,
force and pressure transducers and associated electronics, Dytran is
distributed by Metromatics in Australia and New Zealand.
