The BEI test center has a 32-channel state-of-the-art data acquisition system that is capable of collecting data up to 10 kHz.  Our many transducers include accelerometers, tension/compression load cells, strain gauges, and pressure sensors.  Two Hybrid III dummy heads are in-house equipment and full Hybrid III dummies are available when needed.  Other test equipment includes a drop tower, a digital oscilloscope, and high-speed video cameras.  In addition to testing conducted directly for clients, our test center staff works in conjunction with our engineers and researchers to conduct testing that supports our biomechanical analysis and research projects.
