SEAL BEACH, Calif., 18 Sept. 2015. Diversified Technical Systems Inc. (DTS) in Seal Beach, Calif., is introducing the TSR data logger to measure shock and vibration in unattended monitoring of high-value equipment like satellites, delicate lasers, or aircraft parts as they are transported cross country.

The test and measurement device for a wide variety of military and commercial applications to measure shock and vibration includes a ±20 g sensor range. With built-in XYZ accelerometers that eliminate the need for time-consuming sensor hook-up, an internal battery, and simple software.

The TSR can capture as many as 2,000 transient shock events or run as a continuous data recorder for seconds to days. Data writes to 1-gigabyte flash memory and is downloaded via USB. DTS offers several bandwidth options and sensor ranges from ±20 to 6000 g full scale.

The TSR was developed as an incident data recorder and has been mounted in NASCAR's National Touring Series race vehicles since 2011. The resulting data has aided in continued improvements in driver safety.

The TSR recorders mount on the test article or may be embedded inside the test device. Sampling rates are user-adjustable from 1,000 to 20,000 samples per channel and the aluminum enclosure is IP67 rated and shock-rated to 500 g. There is a heavy-duty vehicle blast version that is survivable to 10,000 g and capable of sampling 75,000 samples per channel.

The device is designed to operate completely standalone for as long as six months. For more information contact DTS online at www.dtsweb.com.
