Angular Velocity Measurements Made Easy

April 15, 2020

DTS ARS PRO is the original high-speed angular velocity rate sensor designed for a wide range of applications, the ARS PRO is ideal for vehicle handling, crash, injury biomechanics and high-rate ballistics testing.

The single axis ARS PRO is a silicon-based microelectromechanical system (MEMS) that uses a resonating gyro to measure angular velocity. Miniature and rugged, other key advantages include DC response and low power requirements. 

DTS ARS PRO is the world’s smallest, high performance angular velocity rate sensor. Also available in a triaxial model (ARS3 PRO), as well as a compact six degrees of freedom package (6DX PRO). For more information and detailed specifications check out our ARS PRO product page.

All models are linear over the rated range and comply with SAE and ISO recommended practices for frequency response in all applications. DTS offers full-scale ranges from ±300 to ±50000 deg/sec and bandwidths up to 2000 Hz, fully supporting CFC 180 and 1000 testing requirements. The ARS PRO-1500 is even NHTSA-specified for FMVSS 2020a rear impact testing.

DTS also offers the ARS HG with an impressive 10000 g shock rating, the highest in the industry, which features reinforced mounting points designed to withstand high energy test environments including blast and missile. All models are packaged in compact rugged enclosures and weigh only 2.5 grams. Other features like high output voltage and shunt check capability put the ARS PRO in a class by itself.

DTS ARS PRO and ARS HG are the world’s smallest high shock & vibration tolerant angular rate sensors designed for vehicle handling, crash, injury biomechanics and high-rate blast testing.

The DTS triaxial mounting block makes it easy to create a custom six degrees of freedom sensor package by adding three accelerometers.
