about us

Founded in 1980, Dytran Instruments, Inc. specialized at its inception in piezoelectric accelerometers, dynamic force sensors, pressure transducers and impulse hammers.  Dytran is an industry leader in innovative sensor technologies for both fields - product development testing and embedded solutions.


Product development can be a daunting task; sooner or later computer models of dynamic performance expectations need to be validated in the real world. Conversely, permanent, embedded monitoring of machines and structures is becoming a requirement across all industries and market segments, enabling the machines of the future. Dytran is an industry leader in innovative sensor technologies for both fields - product development testing and embedded solutions.

Accelerometers

NEW PRODUCTS at dytran

NEW PRODUCTS at dytran

An accelerometer is an electromechanical device used to measure acceleration forces. Such forces may be static, like the continuous force of gravity or, as is the case with many mobile devices, dynamic to sense movement or vibrations. Acceleration is the measurement of the change in velocity, or speed divided by time.

FORCE SENSORS

NEW PRODUCTS at dytran

PRESSURE SENSORS

When used in force sensors, strain gauges are attached to a material with known mechanical properties, like steel. When a force is applied to the material, it will deform elastically. The strain gauge is used to measure how much the material has deformed by detecting its change in resistance.

PRESSURE SENSORS

IMPEDANCE HEADS

PRESSURE SENSORS

What is the working principle of a pressure sensor? A pressure sensor works by converting pressure into an analogue electrical signal. The demand for pressure measuring instruments increased during the steam age. ... Nowadays we measure pressure electronically using pressure transducers and pressure switches.

IMPEDANCE HEADS

IMPEDANCE HEADS

A mechanical impedance head includes both a quartz force sensor to measure dynamic tension and compression as well as an accelerometer. They are often used to obtain driving point measurements in modal and structural analysis.

IMPULSE HAMMERS

IMPEDANCE HEADS

IMPEDANCE HEADS

The Impulse Hammer from Dytran Instruments is used to excite structures or machinery with a definable impulse force. Resonances are identified by the impulse. Firstly, this is an important measurement parameter for the study of dynamic behavior.

CAN–MD®

Advanced Sensing

CAN–MD®

CAN−MD is a radically new sensing approach designed for ease of integration to next–level data management systems, whether onboard of off–board. To meet the challenges of today, it is no longer enough for an analog sensor to monitor a process and transmit the information as raw time domain data back to a central processing system for reduction and analysis.
