The USB Accelerometer
Gulf Coast Data Concepts is introducing a USB Accelerometer to record movement in 3 axes (G forces) and saves the data to a microSD card.
The product has several applications including the shipping industry. It helps shippers know how critical freight is handled during transportation. The USB Accelerometer records and time-stamps continuous shock and motion data. The resulting data reveals when freight was dropped, tilted, or moved.
Another application is in the medical industry of Actigraphy. Actigraphy is the monitoring of human motor activity, such as exercise intensity or sleep disorders. The USB Accelerometer records the movement of a patient throughout the day, night, or an entire week. Analysis of the data can quantify the amount of physical activity or exercise conducted by the patient.
This is especially important for verifying that certain patients exercise properly, like the elderly or physically disabled.
The USB Case
Gulf Coast Data Concepts (GCDC) selected J&L Plastic Molding to supply the USB Case for the USB Accelerometer. GCDC liked the savings of tooling in China with the security of J&L taking responsibility for the logistics and tooling.
The USB Case is an assembly of the Case Top, Case Bottom and Case Cap. GCDC submitted a purchase order and supplied J&L with the final CAD models to begin the tooling process.
