The SAA (ShapeAccelArray) sensor cables are manufactured by Measurand Inc and have gain popularity in certain geotechnical applications. Its data is somewhat complex to use. VDV fully supports SAA data using special SAA import and graphs. It is simple to import SAA data into VDV and create a SAA view. In VDV configuration you may choose to auto detect the sensors (X,Y,Z) or you may select the (X,Y,Z) sensors manually. Part of the configuration is to insert the distance between sensors, the actual end position of the SAA array and then update all sensor positions automatically.
The VDV interface is easy to use; Within minutes you can be looking at the SAA graphs and start to analyze the data.
