Shock sensors

To complement Strainstall’s service offering, we offer specialist stress, strain and shock front time-of-arrival measuring equipment, from Dynasen Inc.

The shock sensors can be incorporated into a full monitoring system to suit your specific application to increase safety and operational efficiency.

See Dynasen position transducer pins (new window) for more information. 

A small coaxial probe that produces an electrical signal when impacted at its sensing end by a fast moving object or when exposed to either an ionization or shock front.

Thin film sensors provide shock pressure measurements via a number of different types:

• Switches
• Stress gauges
• Strain gauges
• Electromagnetic velocity gauges

They produce an electrical signal when subjected to sudden contact force or to a continuously varying stress, strain, or a velocity field. See Dynasen thin film sensors (new window) for more information.
