The miniature Slice data recorder from DTS is designed to be mounted directly on the test article so no slip rings and no telemetry are required. Slice fits on virtually any moving or rotating part without altering test dynamics and can be used in extreme test environments. It is also designed for field testing and is shock rated up to 5000 g, which makes it useful in rotating applications like automotive, aerospace, and military. For applications like measuring torque on a drive shaft, Slice mounts directly on the shaft next to the strain gauges while eliminating issues with noise, data transfer and cumbersome fixtures.

Slice's built-in microprocessor manages a full featured signal conditioning and storage system that includes independent excitation sources, variable gain amplifiers, adjustable sampling rates from 10 sps to 500k sps, and adjustable anti-alias filters up to 40 kHz. It also features a 16GB direct-write flash memory that can record high sample rate data continuously for hours. Slice also supports bridge sensors, strain gauges, IEPE sensors, voltage inputs and temperature sensors. Because Slice stores all data onboard, it eliminates reliability issues from streaming data, especially with higher channel counts or high bandwidth tests. A 3-channel DTS Slice data recorder, including battery, is mounted directly on a CNC shaft along with strain gauges to measure torque and a DTS ARS PRO angular rate sensor to measure angular velocity.
