Positioning a THOR dummy and monitoring ATD temperature just got easier with DTS’s complete SLICE6 in-dummy data acquisition solution. Each SLICE6 module features a built-in tri-axial tilt sensor, designed specifically for ATD positioning. The unit also logs temperature to make sure the THOR is within regulation boundaries before each test. Tilt and temperature datalogging are managed through a standalone software utility that works in conjunction with DataPRO, the main control software.
In the user interface, target bubbles change from red to green when each position point is within the specified positioning values. Multiple bubbles can be viewed simultaneously to ensure that all required measurement points within the dummy are properly aligned. Temperature is monitored via the SLICE6 distributor, which features user-programmable options for frequency, sensor selection and recording modes.
