Crash wall pole segments, SmartCrash system, triaxial force measuring elements

9665B

The SmartCrash pole segment with triaxial force measuring elements and integrated electronics for data acquisition and storage was developed to measure forces during vehicle crash tests for side impact.
 
  • 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 pole segment (254x1000 mm) consists of 8 x 3-components of the SmartCrash force elements Type 9350B1. To create the pole geometry, the SmartCrash standard elements are equipped with a shield cover (ø254 mm, 10"). Each individual crash force element measures the three orthogonal forces Fx, Fy and Fz. The piezoelectric measuring elements in the force sensor produce a charge output proportional to the force, 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.
