Its ability to measure a wide range of acceleration amplitude, high frequency sampling rates (up to 20 kHz), long battery life (over 15 hours), large memory (up to 4 billion samples), and small, portable form factor make it ideal for impact testing and many vibration testin applications. The Slam Stick S also comes standard with a 16g triaxial MEMS accelerometer in addition to the 3-axis piezoresistive for improved shock and vibration testing.
Piezoresistive accelerometers have a very wide bandwidth which allows these to be used for measuring short duration (high frequency) shock events such as crash testing. The Slam Stick S's piezoresistive accelerometers are gas damped which protects the accelerometer; but also further widens the dynamic range by preventing the accelerometer from reaching its internal resonant frequency. Piezoresistive accelerometers measure down to zero hertz so they can also be used to accurately calculate velocity or displacement information. Refer to our blog on accelerometer selection for more information on accelerometer types.
