Kistler has declared the release of its high-quality data logger, Corrsys-Datron CDS-GPS model, which has an integrated global positioning system (GPS) for longitudinal vehicle status evaluation applications.
This unique model is highly consistent with the other Corrsys-Datron sensors of the company, and provides 100 Hz frequency updates through GPS signal output employing CANBus module. The device can be fixed easily and rapidly on vehicles, and delivers precise measurements of distance travelled, height, time, absolute speed, latitudinal and longitudinal position, and date, as well as the system condition data involving the signal quality, number of satellites, and other factors.
The excellent and quality operation of this model accurately executes acceleration and deceleration tests, irregular brake-force balance monitoring, ABS brake testing, braking tests, tire validation, fuel consumption assessments, and fault evaluation of electronic control systems in other automotives. Apart from these functionalities, the units are configured with pre-conditioned driving maneuvers for carrying out longitudinal status evaluations.
When the model CDS-GPS is combined with suitable Kistler sensors and devices, such as sideslip angular sensors, rotational speed sensors, pressure transducers, wheel force transducers, and accelerometers, it can be used for extended transversal testing of the vehicle conditions.
