New Product NewsMinimize

zyxBox - VastMotion has released its new motion capture device. This device is smaller than a match box but captures data in 3 axes for acceleration, rotation and impacts.

Accelerations up to 250G can be captured (there is also now a 1000G model). The zyxBox has both Bluetooth and USB communications and up to two hours capturing time on rechargable internal power, longer on external power via USB interface.

See the Products tab for more information and pricing.

Sensors:
acceleration (low g) to +/- 16 g in 3 axes at 0.0005 g resolution
impact (high g) to +/- 256 g in 3 axes at 0.5g resolution
rotation in 3 axes to +/- 2000 degrees per second at 0.06 degrees per second resolution
Sample rates are 4000/sec, 1600, 800, 400 and so on down to 0.78 (1.28 seconds per sample)
Recording capacity over 2 million values, recording from 1 to 12 axes in any combination.
Up to 1024 separately triggered records
Triggering by motion using any sensor axis or by time with set retriggering interval
Internal clock/calendar with 1 millisecond resolution
Communications via USB and Bluetooth
Dimensions 52mm (L) x 46mm (W) x 12mm(D), with mounting holes in each corner.
Weight 25 grams maximum.

Introducing Vast MotionMinimize

Vast Motion builds innovative electronic devices for capturing data relating to motion. We specialise in miniature acceleration sensing devices. These devices can sense acceleration in multiple directions, either storing the data for later download and analysis or reporting the data in real time

We derived the name Vast from the four main parameters our devices measure. Velocity - Acceleration - Distance - Time. Many physics students might remember that distance is often represented by the variable "s" in the equations of motion. Also "s" is very similar to the sign used for integration. Much of the analysis of the acceleration data our miniature devices capture is done by integrating the acceleration with respect to time to gain velocity data and then integrating velocity with respect to time to determine the distance travelled. Since these four parameters,Velocity - Acceleration - Distance - Time, are so important to what we do we incorporated them into our name, Vast Motion

We have explored a number of applications for our devices from F1 in Schools racing to model rocket launching. We are sure there are many more applications that these devices could be used to collect and log data with. We would like to hear your ideas for potential new applications. Please visit our blog page and add your comments.

We hope you enjoy exploring our site and learning about how collecting motion data on your project can help you push the envelope for the development of your own products and hobbies.

Vast Motion NewsMinimize

"F1 Puck - Vast Motion collborated with the F1 in Schools Australian National Champion Teams to develop an Accelerometer data logger for collecting acceleration data from the car during a race. Over a three year period teams we assisted finsihed on the podium in consecutive World Championships events. We congratualate the team in their success."

"Vast Motion is currently conducting test on the F1 Puck versatility by using it to collect data on model rock launches. The F1 puck has a programmable data collection interface."

"Vast Motion is looking for other applications of the F1 Puck minature acceleration data logger. There has got to be a hundred different uses for this little data gathering puck. Can you think of any? Let us know."

"VAST Motion has released a new motion capture device for 2011.Tthis device captures 3 axis of acceleration, rotation and magnetic field data. Shock acceleration up to 250G. Programmable trigger events. The device is smaller than a match box and can capture data autonomously for up to six hours. Bluetooth and USB interface for programing and data download."

"The Australian National F1 in Schools Championship was held in the Nation Capital, Canberra on November 24th to 26th 2008. Racing saw all Australian National and State records fall with three cars going under the magic 1 second barrier."

F1 in Schools International SuccessMinimize

Vastmotion has been colaborating with F1 in Schools teams over the last few years. Teams we have supported and assisted have placed second at the F1 in Schools International Event over the last three years in Malysia, England and Singapore. Congratulations to those teams.
