Environmental Sensors

Get the Most Comprehensive View of Any Testing Environment Quickly, Easily, and Accurately with enDAQ's Sensors

Characterize your shock or vibration testing environment with enDAQ's standalone environmental sensing devices.

Each of our enDAQ sensors have a primary accelerometer and then 7 additional embedded sensors. enDAQ sensors include:

  • An embedded accelerometer with a wide dynamic range to capture low amplitude vibration with high resolution (0.0001g)
  • Seven additional environmental sensors, including: gyroscope, temperature, pressure, humidity, light, microphone, and GPS
  • The ability to capture shock events up to 2,000g
  • Fast sample rates - up to 20,000 Hz
  • Ability to upload raw data to the enDAQ Cloud

These wireless devices save data locally. Download your data post-test via USB or over Wi-Fi with your W-series sensor.

More On Our Embedded Sensors

Sensor Series Description
Vibration Sensor S | W Vibration Accelerometer: The triaxial piezoelectric accelerometer, when compared to the DC MEMS accelerometer, offers a higher data quality. Piezoelectric accelerometers are the most popular because of their versatility but they have two disadvantages: an AC coupling and their charge amplifier can become saturated during high frequency and/or amplitude shock events. » Specifications
Vibration Sensor S | W Shock Accelerometer: The piezoresistive accelerometer offers similar advantages as the piezoelectric in terms of data quality. But they have the added benefit of being capable of measuring static accelerations and low-frequency vibrations. They also have internal gas damping to widen the dynamic frequency range of the accelerometer. These accelerometers are increasingly becoming more popular for shock and vibration testing applications. » Specifications
Light Sensor S | W Light: This sensor is capable of capturing the intensity of visible and ultraviolet light at a rate of 4 Hz. This sensor is not calibrated and is intended for rough, relative measurements only. » Specifications
Pressure Sensor S | W Pressure: External: All enDAQ sensors now include temperature, pressure, and humidity sensor in the external "control pad" (has LEDs and button). This new sensor has improved accuracy and response on its own; but with its external location, the data will be a better representation of ambient conditions.» Specifications

Internal: This sensor is still used to compensate for change in sensitivity of the piezoelectric accelerometer over temperature which is why it is still enabled.» Specifications
Thermal Sensor S | W Thermal: External: All enDAQ sensors now include temperature, pressure, and humidity sensor in the external "control pad" (has LEDs and button). This new sensor has improved accuracy and response on its own; but with its external location, the data will be a better representation of ambient conditions.» Specifications

Internal: This sensor is still used to compensate for change in sensitivity of the piezoelectric accelerometer over temperature which is why it is still enabled.» Specifications
Rotation Sensor S | W Rotation:All enDAQ sensors now include an embedded "smart sensor hub" that has an integrated triaxial gyroscope, triaxial accelerometer, triaxial geomagnetic sensor and a microcontroller for intelligently fusing raw data from the 9 sensors.» Specifications
Humidity Sensor S | W External Humidity:All enDAQ sensors now include temperature, pressure, and humidity sensor in the external "control pad" (has LEDs and button). This new sensor has improved accuracy and response on its own; but with its external location, the data will be a better representation of ambient conditions. » Specifications
Microphone Sensor W Sound: The microphone records at the same rate as the other analog channels (up to 20 kHz) and was added for W series devices.» Specifications
GPS Sensor W GPS: The W series units have a GPS module that can record: Latitude and Longitude; Speed in m/s; Epoch time (number of seconds since 1/1/1970)» Specifications
