The MSR165 shock and vibration data logger has made a name for itself, particularly in the field of transportation monitoring. The MSR165 features 1600 shock measurements per second in all three axes, the capacity to store over 1 billion measured values and the ability to add additional temperature, humidity, pressure and light sensors. All this is diligently manufactured in Switzerland and packaged in a compact case.

Shock values up to ±200 g

Following the recent enhancement of the MSR165 memory capacity (2 million measured values by default, 1 billion measured values with a microSD card) as well as improved software for capturing and evaluating the recorded data, the MSR165 now has an increased working range and longer life battery. Whilst it was previously possible to monitor shocks up to ±15 g, this has been increased to ±200 g. This extended working range is beneficial for recording applications where very large forces occur suddenly. High transient shocks can occur during transportation monitoring of delicate goods, industrial drop and impact testing and in aerospace applications. With its digital 3-axis acceleration sensor, the MSR165 can detect any unplanned events. The 3-axis acceleration sensor starts recording data either when an acceleration threshold is exceeded or at a set time. 32 measured values are recorded even before the shock event takes place, in order to ensure that the history of the shock can be examined during G-force analysis.

Recording data for up to 10 times longer

The MSR165 data logger is designed for long-term operation. It has extremely low power requirements and thanks to its rechargeable 800 mAh lithium-polymer battery, the unit can record shock measurements for a period of up to six months by default. In order to satisfy user demands for an even longer recording period, MSR Electronics GmbH now offers two additional long-term power supply options. For a recording period of up to five years the MSR165 can now be equipped with two replaceable Li-SOCl2 3.6 V 7700 mAh batteries. The batteries are stored in a separate industrial-strength; splash-proof cast aluminium case. The second option for increasing the recording period by up to six times is to use the “MSR Power Pack”. The MSR Power Pack is an autonomous charging station with a capacity of 5000 mAh that can be used to recharge the internal battery of the data logger during operation. The charging interval can be set to: 24 hours, 7 days or 30 days.
