There are specific applications which require measurement tools with very low frequency response capability. For instance, amusement park rides, aerospace flight applications, rail-car coupling impacts, and vehicle crash testing all possess unique dynamic characteristics; low frequency response, long duration, constant acceleration. Instruments using hardware/accelerometers with DC-response are best suited to accurately and precisely measure these low frequency dynamics.
The 3D15 uses MEMS technology accelerometers, possessing DC-response measurement capability. The 3D15 uses the identical chassis and casing as the industry leading measurement instrument, the 3X90. Traditionally, the power requirement for DC-response hardware has limited their field applications, however its innovative design allows for 15 days of continual run time on one set of batteries.
