In this video, we analysis the impact of a bicycle helmet when dropped on a flat impact anvil. An Accelerometer was placed to measure the peak acceleration (G-force).
In this video shows part of the CPSC 1203 Helmet tests, in this case, we test to see if the helmet is able to stay on a person's head. For this test an strap is hooked over the front edge of the helmet, and a 4 kg weight is dropped from a height of 0.6 [...]
Continuing with the CPSC 1203 Helmet tests, in this section, we measure the amount of stretch in the straps. In this instance, a technician attached the helmet chin straps to a 4 kg weight roller bar assembly. When the weight drops a laser measuring device collects data regarding the amount of expand the straps experienced.
In this video, we analysis the impact of a bicycle helmet when dropped from a 1.2 meter height into a curb impact anvil. An Accelerometer was placed to measure the peak acceleration (G-force). A peak G-force inside the helmet should not exceed 300 g. in accordance of CPSC 1203.
When conducting bicycle helmets impact attenuation testing we employ multiple anvils types. In this instance, a hemispherical impact anvil is placed at a 1.2 meter height. When using flats anvils, we perform the test dropping the helmet from a 2 meter height.
We are able to conduct a wide range of Motorcycle/Sport helmet test. In this video, we perform a Helmet Penetration test. A 3 kg pointed steel striker is dropped from a 3 meter height. The steel striker should not touch the headform inside the helmet after the drop in accordince of FMVSS 218.
