Dyena Acceleration Recorder
The Dyena Acceleration Recorder (DaccR) continuously records impact exposure (g-loads), time, speed, heading and position for over 600 days. A color-coded 3D map trace of each days operation indicates the severity of exposure to vibration and impacts. Spreadsheet data is also provided. Supplied with an external GPS antenna, the compact unit is simple to install and self calibrating, requiring only a 9v to 32v power source to begin collecting data.

It is ideal for use in showrooms, boat shows, repair shops and storage areas. Three phenolic wheels with casters prevent scratches on showroom floors and the foam-padded top protects against scratches to the boat. The dollies hold up to 2,000 lbs and are suitable for all pontoon boat sizes.
