DTS ARS PRO is the world’s smallest high shock and vibration tolerant angular rate sensor designed specifically for high energy test environments.

"No other sensor comes close," said Mike Beckage, DTS VP and co-founder.

Diversified Technical Systems, Inc. (DTS), a global industry leader in the design and manufacture of highly rugged data recorders and sensors, announced the market launch of the ARS PRO series of high performance angular rate sensor for dynamic testing applications.

The ARS PRO is a silicon-based microelectromechanical system (MEMS) that uses a resonating gyro to discern angular rates by measuring deflections in the sensing element that occur when rotational forces are applied. Key advantages include DC response, low power requirements, compact form factor and high shock tolerance.

All models are linear over the rated range and comply with SAE and ISO recommended practices for frequency response in all applications. DTS offers full-scale ranges from ±300 to ±50000 deg/sec and bandwidths up to 2000 Hz, fully supporting CFC 180, 600 and 1000 testing requirements. DTS also offers the ARS HG with an impressive 10000 g shock rating, the highest in the industry, which features reinforced mounting points designed to withstand high energy test environments including blast and missile. All models are packaged in compact rugged enclosures and weigh only 2.5 grams. Other features like high output voltage and shunt check capability put the ARS PRO in a class by itself.

DTS ARS mounting blocks offer an easy triax solution. Blocks also include mounting points for three accelerometers to create a six degrees of freedom package. For more information and detailed specifications on the ARS PRO visit http://www.dtsweb.com.
