Saver Instruments

SAVER ProductsPortable SAVER Field Instruments can autonomously measure and record tens of thousands of targeted events of interest. The collected data allows for assessment and characterization of both the dynamic and atmospheric hazards present within measured transport and in-use environments.

Our products range from Monitoring Instruments, which monitor if and when significant impact events occur, to Measurement Instruments, which record thousands of shock and vibration events, allowing for detailed characterization and analysis.

SAVER 3D15

SAVER 3D15 is intended for applications where DC recording capabilities are required. Most often these are low frequency measurements such as amusement park rides, aerospace flight applications, rail-car coupling impacts, and vehicle crash testing. SAVER 3D15 is the first model to use MEMS technology accelerometers with DC response measurement capability. This instrument is equipped with an internal triaxial accelerometer and will take measurements for up to 15 days.

SAVER 3X90

SAVER 3X90 is the most popular SAVER model–it combines everything you need into a single small package. SAVER 3X90 is powered with 9V lithium (or alkaline) batteries and provides continuous operation for up to 90 days. The internal triaxial accelerometer and temperature and humidity sensor can be used to record both signal-triggered events (data recorded when exceeding a threshold) and timer-triggered events (data recorded on a time interval).

SAVER 9X30

SAVER 9X30 has the ability to record up to 9 dynamic channels–an internal triaxial accelerometer as well as 6 external accelerometer inputs. SAVER 9X30 also includes sensors to record temperature, humidity, and atmospheric pressure. SAVER 9X30 is powered with 9V lithium (or alkaline) batteries and will take measurements for up to 30 days.  SAVER 9X30 can be setup to record signal-triggered and time-triggered events.
