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.
