Rugged Data Recorders Small Enough to Fit Onboard Drones
Collecting unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) flight data can be challenging with typical data recorders and sensors that add sizeable mass and volume. DTS ultra-small SLICE MICRO and NANO data recorders are rugged and designed to embed directly in the test article – even small drones.
Modular in design, the NANO has a footprint of just 26×31 millimetres. The standalone systems include a microprocessor, excitation, full signal conditioning and sample up to 500,000sps/channel. SLICE can record for hours or even days and direct-writes data to 16 GB flash memory. SLICE delivers precision shock and vibration data in low and high temperatures, high altitudes and low pressure environments (meets MIL-STD-810-E) and is 500g shock rated with a 5,000g option available.
Ideal for a variety of applications, SLICE supports a full range of external sensors including accelerometers (Piezoresistive & Piezoelectric IEPE), strain gages, load cells, as well as pressure, angular rate, voltage and temperature sensors. Integrated sensors are also available for an all-in-one solution.
DTS is exhibiting at booth #3070 and showcase its ultra-small SLICE MICRO and NANO data recorders. These rugged systems are designed to embed directly in the test article – even small UAVs. The systems solves the problem of collecting UAV flight datawith typical data recorders and sensors that add sizeable mass and volume.
