Dytran Instruments, Inc.
Dytran Instruments, Inc. is the industry leader in innovative sensor technologies for product development testing and embedded solutions. Dytran specializes in designing and manufacturing custom high-end sensors, including piezoelectric and MEMS accelerometers, dynamic force and pressure transducers, USB accelerometers with software included, and digital bus-based sensors. Founded in 1980, they are an AS9100 and ISO17025 / A2LA certified company. Today, the company continues to provide the test and measurement community with outstanding customer service and high-quality products that reliably operate in extremely harsh environments.
Striving to provide customers with a “one stop shop” Dytran has an extensive product line, including a full line of triaxial accelerometers, high temperature sensors with built in electronics (IEPE), miniature accelerometers, variable capacitance DC sensors with low noise differential output and sensors with TEDS capability. Dytran also offers a broad line of impulse hammers, force sensors, pressure sensors, electronics, low outgassing cables and accessories for all your dynamic measurement needs. Their sensors are used by flight test engineers in fixed-wing aircraft, rotorcraft, launch vehicle and spacecraft flight test programs.
Their newest innovation, CAN-MD® (Controller Area Network – Machinery Diagnostic) acquires data, fully processes it, & delivers actionable outcomes – all inside the sensor. CAN-MD® is a new digital sensing platform for machinery diagnostics featuring highly configurable CAN-Bus based sensors with integral DSP micro-processors that enable data reduction and algorithm processing to migrate to the sensor itself rather than reside in separate boxes or processing layers. CAN-MD accelerometers collect vibration data, process spectral data, and post condition indicators that allow advanced vehicles and machines to have the ability to self-diagnose conditions that could lead to catastrophic failure or to unanticipated downtime. As the vibration sensing industry is trending towards a new era of distributed processing, CAN-MD® sensors are leading the paradigm shift in how the industry manages machinery monitoring.
Dytran has gained their reputation as an industry leader by working closely with their customers in developing unique solutions to their test and measurement challenges. They are known for their customer service and quick turnaround times, so whether you need off-the-shelf or custom sensors, their trained team of application engineers will guide you through the buying process with ease.
Dytran sensors are designed and manufactured in Chatsworth, just outside of Los Angeles, California. Their state of the art, in-house CNC machine shop allows them to tightly control quality and production schedules. Both the in-house design and machining capabilities afford them the ability to make modifications to their standard product line or start with a “clean sheet of paper”.
Their facility also houses Dytran’s 17025 certified calibration laboratory. Whether you need to send your units in for calibration or repair, you can trust that your sensors are in good hands with their well-trained service technicians.
