MadgeTech Demolition Derby Car Records Crash Data

Posted on

Here’s a throwback from six years ago today, when MadgeTech engineers and staff installed several data loggers in a car destined for destruction. MadgeTech was proud to sponsor a Demolition Derby car for the 2013 Hopkinton State Fair, driven by then 20-year-old, Roddy Tanner, of Warner.

Installed in Roddy’s blue Ford LTD were an UltraShock-50G, two TSR101-50G shock loggers for monitoring the G forces of the crashes, three TC101As for monitoring the temperature of the engine block, radiator and transmission and a Pulse101A for monitoring the engine RPMs. The loggers were secured to various positions within the vehicle using industrial strength high powered magnets. There’s no need to worry about the shock loggers themselves, their steel enclosures are built to be virtually indestructible.

Since then, MadgeTech has released the new UltraShock, available for preorder now, which replaces all of our older shock models. The UltraShock contains powerful improvements and an all-in-one functionality capable of recording shock, temperature, pressure and humidity. Featuring a smaller, lighter design, the UltraShock has a battery life of up to 90 days and uses a USB-C cable, making it easily rechargeable.

If you would like more information on the new UltraShock, please email MadgeTech at [email protected] or give us a call at (603)-456-2011.
