MSR165: Data Logger for shock and vibration

THE bestseller 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.

Ideal for long-term measurements

This waterproof data logger, in its anodised aluminium case, has extremely low power requirements due to its high-performance 3-axis accelerometer (13-bit resolution). Thanks to its rechargeable 900 mAh lithium-polymer battery the unit can record shock measurements over a period of up to six months. For an increased recording period of up to five years, the MSR165 can be equipped with replaceable long-life batteries. Alternatively, use the MSR Power Pack, an autonomous charging station that can be used to recharge the internal battery of the data logger during operation. The MSR Power Pack can be ordered separately and allows you to record data for up to 6 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.
