TSR AIR – Universal Data Logger with Built-In 6DOF Sensors, Onboard Recording, Real-Time Streaming

The TSR AIR is a high-performance data logger with built-in 6-degree-of-freedom (6DOF) sensors designed for collecting shock and vibration data in harsh test environments.

Compact and self-powered, the rugged system is ideal for unattended monitoring of shock, vibration and other parameters with multiple triggered-event capabilities.

Simple and reliable, the TSR AIR is “always on” and ready to record. An advanced sleep mode “wakes” for an event trigger, collects data to flash memory, then automatically re-arms and returns to ready mode to capture the next event.

TSR AIR Applications Include: Shock & Vibration Analysis, In-Flight Testing, UAV/Drones, Parachute Deployment, Engine Vibration, Vehicle Crash, Transportation Monitoring and High-Value Asset Tracking


  • Standalone data logger with built-in sensors and memory
  • Small and lightweight for quick installation and testing
  • Internal Sensors
    • Multiple accelerometer g-levels for full dynamic range
    • Angular rate sensors (high-rate gyroscope)
    • Environment sensors temperature and pressure
  • Advanced “sleep & wake” feature extends battery life for months
  • Wide operating temperature range of -40C to 60°C
  • Data writes to flash memory (8 GB), stores 1000’s of events
  • Programable sampling rate from 100 to 20,000 sps
  • User-programmable trigger modes; msec to hours for each event
  • Unit-to-unit synchronization via IEEE 1588 PTP, IRIG or GPS
  • Streaming format is IRIG 106 Chapter 10 compliant
  • Simple, intuitive software for arming, downloading and viewing data
