Hammer Impact Testing

Impact testing, also known as bump testing, tap testing, or hammer resonance testing, involves the use of an instrumented force hammer to excite a structure in order to measure the response with an accelerometer. The DATS-HITS (Hammer Impact Testing System) solution is straightforward to use, fast, reliable and accurate. The HITS system includes a 4-channel DATS-solo data capture system, the DATS Hammer Impact software and, optionally, an instrumented hammer and/or accelerometers.

Key Benefits

Easy setup

The DATS-HITS software leads the user, step-by-step, through the setup process.

Simple & Fast

The simple setup process and automatic processing means results are produced quickly and easily.

Accurate & Reliable

The DATS software integrates with all of the hardware options and blends ease of use for beginners with power for experienced users

Decades of knowledge

We made our HITS system to help us in our consultancy work so the hardware & software is designed around real world needs


From 4 channels upwards

The standard HITS system uses a 4-channel DATS-solo. The system can be expanded for more complex tests using other DATS platforms.

We do the clever bit

The complex mathematics of windowing, transfer function type, frequency range is all taken care of for you.

Data export included

Do you need to export test results to Word or Excel for FEA validation? No problem. It’s all included.

Simple USB power

Simply plug the DATS-solo into the USB port on your laptop or PC. No need to connect any extra power sources.

Optional sensors

You can either use sensors you already have or we can supply accelerometers and/or instrumented hammers as part of your system.

Prosync synchronisation

Prosync means that every sample on every channel is accurately synchronised. Ensuring that all of your data is accurate & precise.
