The VibraScout™ 6DoF is an innovative, cost-effective, plug-and-play, portable data acquisition system. It contains an 8-pole elliptical anti-aliasing filter and measures X, Y, Z acceleration, as well as roll, pitch, yaw. This complete data acquisition system eliminates the hassle of having to use a separate data acquisition system, power supply and other ancillary equipment.

VibraScout™ 6DoF can plot recorded data, zoom and select a specific timeframe of recorded data for post-processing, reproduce interpolated oversampled data to provide better resolution of vibration signals, export multiple file types including time data, FFT, PSD and CPB in CSV, JPG, UFF58, and MAT LAB formats. An Application Programming Interface (API) is available for customers who would like to build custom applications for the VibraScout™ 6DoF. The API provides support for any .NET-compatible client application. Custom application development is also available.

The variable capacitance (VC) triaxial accelerometer and gyroscopes are protected inside a small, hermetically sealed titanium housing weighing 25 grams making it ideal for use in harsh environments. The frequency range of the VibraScout™ 6DoF accelerometer is 0 Hz (DC) to 1,000 Hz and the gyro sensor is 0 to 140 Hz. Units are ruggedized to 3,000g shock.

How it Works: 

The components that makeup Model 5384 include: 6DoF accelerometer model 7586A2, 4-pin to USB cable 6330A15 and software toolkit 9013. Accelerometer model 7586A2 is a 6 degrees of freedom sensor that combines a 3-axis MEMS accelerometer, 3-axis gyro sensor, with a microcontroller to create a smart sensor. The software can be downloaded from the Dytran website and can easily be uploaded to your PC or laptop. The supplied USB cable can handle all the sensor communications with the PC; no external power is required for the sensor, simply plug into the USB port. The sensor is hermetically sealed in a titanium housing weighing just 25 grams, allowing it to be used in harsh environments from test tracks to field monitoring. The frequency range of the triaxial accelerometers in the VibraScout™ 6DOF is 0 Hz (Dc) to 1,000 Hz. Units can withstand 3,00g shock.
