Record Vibrations, Impacts & Acceleration Quickly & Accurately!

The Slam Stick X is a data recorder capable of measuring vibrations, impacts and acceleration in all three axes while also measuring temperature and pressure. The vibration meter is available in ±25g, ±100g, and ±500g ranges and can sample at up to 20kHz per channel. It is available in an aluminum and polycarbonate version.

Its lightweight design (40 & 65 grams) and large surface area (3.5 in2) minimize mass loading and enable adhesive mounting using double sided tape or other suggested adhesives. Its rugged enclosure, and wide temperature operating range (-40°C to 80°C) enables the Slam Stick X to perform in many harsh environments.

A micro-USB receptacle allows for quick and easy connection to a computer where data can be analyzed with Mide's provided software package. The software also enables configuration of the device to meet a variety of customer needs. Triggers for data capture include time delays, calendar date/time wake up and acceleration, temperature or pressure trigger.

Why Choose the Aluminum Enclosure?

We have introduced the premium Slam Stick X with Aluminum enclosure into our current suite of vibration data loggers in direct response from our existing customers looking for an even more accurate, durable and versatile shock and vibration data recorder. The significantly stiffer aluminum enclosure makes it ideal for shock testing, high frequency vibration testing, and applications where accuracy is paramount and semi-permanent mounting, for instance epoxy or bolting, is available.

What is the Difference Between Measurement Ranges?

The Slam Stick X is available in three selectable measurement ranges: ±25g, ±100g, or ±500g. The part number of the product specifies this range (see the datasheet (PDF) for part numbering information). The Slam Stick X has 16-bit resolution. This means that there are 216 (65,536) acceleration levels that the device can measure. As the measurement range increases, so does the difference between each measurable acceleration level. The noise level also increases as the measurement range increases. All other characteristics of the unit are the same: including cost, form factor, battery life, etc.
