Freight Monitoring Accelerometer F6E
The F6E freight monitoring system is built around our successful X6-1A accelerometer data logger. Inside the compact weatherproof enclosure is the X6-1A system, 2 D-cell batteries for extended data logging life, an on/off switch to initiate data collection, and a lithium battery to maintain the real time clock. This rugged system is designed to constantly collect precise time stamped data for over 20 days.
Reference the X6-1A specification for detailed capabilities and operating procedures.
While no special tools are required to analyze data, we have provided a tool that helps find and save the more interesting portions of a data collection set. Details can be found here
A simple text file is used to configure the device gain, dead band, and size of each data file.
Data is contained in easily readable plain text files. Meta data starts with a ";" and the comma delimited data (.csv) can be analyzed with a spreadsheet or text processor as shown here.
