Triaxial Angular Rate Sensor Excels in Challenging Test Environments – ARS3 PRO

March 23, 2020

Collecting pitch, roll and yaw data on test articles with tight size or weight restrictions just got easier. The ultra-small triaxial angular rate sensor, ARS3 PRO delivers precision angular velocity measurements, even in excessive shock and vibration environments.

Unlike an accelerometer that measures linear motion, the ARS3 PRO (triaxial angular rate sensor) measures high rates of angular velocity. From lever durability to life-cycle testing of a car door or RPM of a driveshaft, the miniature ARS3 PRO is designed to be positioned near the point of interest. It’s also ideal for collecting in-situ data on helmets and sports gear like hockey sticks, without altering the CoG or test dynamics. 

The ARS3 PRO Triaxial Angular Rate Sensor measures position and even RPM in virtually any moving part without affecting test dynamics. Ideal for test articles with tight size and weight restrictions, the ultra-small ARS3 PRO measures X, Y and Z angular velocity in high shock and vibration test environments. For more information and detailed specifications check out DTS ARS3 PRO.

 The aluminum 19 x 19 x 12.5 mm enclosure is IP67 rated, weighs only 9 grams and is shock rated to 10,000 g. The triaxial package is 50% smaller and 40% lighter than even three DTS ARS PRO uniaxial sensors on a mounting block. Available in ranges from ±300 to 50K deg/sec and in multiple bandwidths, the ARS3 PRO features DC response and shunt check capabilities.

It’s an evolution of DTS innovation combining the inherent reliability and proven performance of its single axis predecessor with super high-rate ranges incorporating triaxial angular rate sensors for applications like aerospace, ballistics and vehicle crash safety.

The ARS3 PRO meets the latest U.S. government dynamic performance requirements – read more including detailed specifications on our ARS3 PRO page.
