Small overlap crash wall segments, SmartCrash system, triaxial force measuring elements / 9661B
The SmartCrash overlap segments with triaxial force measuring elements and integrated electronics for data acquisition and storage were developed for force measurements during vehicle crash tests for small overlap (25%) configuration.
- Single connecting cable per segment
- Ideal for dynamic measurements thanks to high rigidity and high natural frequency
- Wide measuring range
- Excellent linearity and high degree of overload protection
- Integrated data acquisition and storage
- TEDS functionality
- Preloaded and calibrated
A SmartCrash overlap segment (650x1000 mm) consists of 32 x 3-components of the SmartCrash force elements Type 9661B40 and of 8 x 3-components of the SmartCrash corner elements Type 9359B1. Its dimensions and the number of crash force elements can be tailored to the customer‘s technical requirements. Each individual crash force element measures the three orthogonal forces Fx, Fy and Fz. The piezoelectric measuring elements in the force sensor output yield a force proportional charge, which is amplified and processed. A unit for digitization of the analog signals (DiMod) is incorporated in each individual crash force element. The charge signals are converted into a voltage signal, digitized by an A/D converter and stored in a central data recorder which simultanously executes the parametrization and control.
