MSR165: Data Logger for shock and vibration

The MSR165 is ideal for transportation monitoring, fault diagnoses and load tests! The robust MSR165 data logger is capable of making 1600 acceleration (shock, vibrations) measurements per second in all three axes. Shock monitoring is possible up to ±15 g or up to ±200 g, 32 measurement values are recorded even before the event takes place.

Over one billion measurement values

The installed memory is capable of storing over 2 million measured values which is sufficient for more than 10 000 shocks. A microSD card (≥4GB) can be used to increase the capacity of the data logger to over 1 billion measurement values. All saved measurements can be quickly transferred to a PC or laptop via the USB interface. The free MSR PC software is available to you for configuring and analysing the data.

Ideal for long-term measurements

The MSR165 has extremely low power requirements. With the lithium-polymer battery (900 mAh) you can monitor shocks for up to six months, with replaceable Li-SOCl2 batteries even for up to five years. The MSR power pack, which can be ordered separately, is another option to increase the recording period: The autonomous charging station recharges the internal battery of the data logger during operation, allowing you to record data for up to six times longer.

The basic specification of the MSR165 includes a high resolution 3-axis acceleration sensor with a working range of either ±15 g or ±200 g. In addition to the acceleration, you can also record temperature, humidity, air pressure, light and four analogue input signals.

Customer Reviews

Great product but seems a bit over priced Review by Vibration Test Engineer
Price
Quality
Value
This product is without a doubt a great tool for vibration and shock testing. It has a host of customizable options to better meet your testing needs. It's quite impressive what this small device is able to do and how robust it is. It saves a lot of time and money over setting up a LabVIEW system and is leagues better than many of the other "vibration" (I put in quotes because many of the other products only sample up to 100 Hz or so, hardly fast enough for vibration testing) data loggers on the market.

My issue with this product though comes with the cost and lead time. I think, in large part, due to the customization options each unit has to be made to order. As many people in the vibration testing market know, when we need test equipment we needed it yesterday. To wait 2 to 3 weeks is often prohibitive and costly as it can delay other high value aspects of our project. They also seem to really aggressively tack on the costs when adding sensors and storage options, to the point where I felt as though I was being nickle and dimed.

That all being said this product still provides great value over setting up the more traditional and complex vibration measurement systems. I'm definitely happy with this product but felt like it could be much better. (Posted on 12/31/2015)

Questions

  • Answer:

    If you order it with an external temperature sensor it can withstand up to 125C.  The body of the logger itself can only be used up to 65C and even at that temp it shouldn’t be exposed to it for long periods.  Doing so would permanently damage the logger as the battery would fail.

  • Answer:

    The MSR 165 logger is rated at IP67.  The external accelerometer sensor is sealed in silicone and shares this rating. The MSR 165 logger is rated at IP67.  The external accelerometer sensor is sealed in silicone and shares this rating.

  • Answer:

    The logger is available in two ranges, one that can monitor and record forces of negative 15 g to plus 15 g and another that can monitor and record forces from -200 g to plus 200 g.

    The temperature range the logger can monitor and record using an internal sensor is -20°c to 65°c.

    The accuracy is shown as a +/- value for each of the two sensor versions.  Because temperature affects the accuracy of the sensor they also give you a temperature at which you can achieve the stated accuracy. 

     

    The accelerometer sensor gives you force data reported in g-force.  The data can be viewed as numerical values or more commonly in a graph.

  • Answer:

    The sample rate is the rate or frequency the logger can be set to take a reading.

    Because this logger is available with different types of sensors they give a sample rate for each type.

    Acceleration: Up to 1600/s - The fastest the logger can record shock/vibration is 1,600 samples per second.

    Temperature: 1/s to 12 Hours - Record temperatures anywhere from once per second up to once per 12 hours

    Humidity: 1/s to 12 Hours - Record temperatures anywhere from once per second up to once per 12 hours

    Pressure: 1/s to 12 Hours - Record temperatures anywhere from once per second up to once per 12 hours

    Light Level: 1/s to 12 Hours - Record temperatures anywhere from once per second up to once per 12 hours

  • Answer:

    The logger itself and the internal temperature sensor can operate as low as -20°C.  If you purchase it with an external temperature sensor the external sensor can record down to -55°C however the body of the logger still would have that -20°C limit.

    These loggers are designed primarily to operate independently of a PC.  The PC is typically only used to configure the logger and download/view data.  You can view recording values in real time while it's connected to a PC however you can only have one logger connected at a time.

  • Answer:

    The maximum size of the SD card is 4GB.  If you are recording only acceleration at 1600Hz that will give you enough memory for 3 days but the battery life would only be good for 26 hours so you would be limited by that unless you left it plugged in.  At 200Hz the memory would be good for 25 days but the battery only up to 8 days.

  • Answer:

    The only time the sensors are mounted externally is if you select it in the options while building the logger.  The only circumstance where you would have a duplicate sensor both internal and external would be if you selected an internal temp sensor and an external rH sensor.  This is because the rH sensor also has an integrated temp sensor with it.  When the sensors are external they are connected to the logger via a cable.
