An extended working range of up to 200 g and a recording period that is up to ten times longer: with these features, the MSR165 data logger of MSR Electronics facilitates precise shock measurements. Other features include 1600 shock measurements per second in all three axes, the capacity to store over 1 billion measured values and, furthermore, the option of equipping the unit with additional temperature, humidity, pressure or light sensors.
Whilst it was previously possible to monitor shocks up to ±15 g, the user now has a working range of up to ±200 g. This extended working range is beneficial when it comes to recording applications where very large forces occur suddenly, for instance in the field of transportation monitoring of delicate goods, aerospace, as well as drop and impact tests in the industry. The 3-axis acceleration sensor starts recording data either when an acceleration threshold is exceeded or at a set time. 32 measured values are recorded even before the shock event takes place, in order to ensure that the history of the shock can be examined during a ganalysis. As a result, the user not only knows that a shock has occurred but also identifies the exact development of the shock.
