New miniature triaxial angular rate sensor for high shock testing

DTS (Diversified Technical Systems, Inc.), a leading manufacturer of data recorders and sensors used worldwide for crash, blast and safety testing announces the new ARS3 PRO Triaxial Angular Rate Sensor. Designed to accurately measure high rates of angular velocity, even in excessive shock and vibration environments, the new gyroscope is the smallest, high-performance sensor package on the market.

The ARS3 PRO combines three angular rate sensors into an extremely small, rugged aluminum enclosure that measures 19 x 19 x 12.5 mm (0.75 x.075 x 0.49") and weighs only 9 g (0.35 oz). For tight constraint applications requiring three independent sensors to measure pitch, roll and yaw, this design eliminates the need for a mounting block that consumes additional space and adds weight. The result is a self-contained triax that costs 25% less, is 50% smaller and 40% lighter than even three DTS ARS PROs combined in a mounting block.

"The ARS3 PRO is an evolution of DTS innovation in meeting customer needs," says Hans Hellsund, Director, Sales & Marketing of DTS. "It has all the inherent reliability and proven performance of the DTS single axis predecessor with shock and vibration tolerances in super high-rate ranges, repackaged into a tiny triax that won't alter test dynamics."

The sensors are available with range options of ±300, 1500, 8K, 18K, 50K deg/sec, a variety of bandwidths, DC response, up to 10,000 g shock rating, and shunt check capabilities. The ARS3 PRO is ideal for high energy applications such as vehicle crash safety, in-dummy testing, human impact studies, and aerospace and ballistics measurements. It also meets the latest U.S. government dynamic performance requirements.

For sensor applications requiring six degrees of freedom, DTS offers the 6DX PRO that features three angular rate sensors and three accelerometers in a rugged enclosure that measures 19 x 19 x 14.5 mm and weighs 12 grams.

The new ARS3 PRO Triaxial Angular Rate Sensor Package is available for delivery in 4-6 weeks. For more information visit www.dtsweb.com, view data sheet or contact sales@dtsweb.com.
