New Shaker System

The ATS Vibration Lab now operates a 3rd electrodynamic shaker table. This new shaker has a force rating of 10,000 lbf, an armature diameter of 24" and is coupled with a slip table of 48"x48". Slip tables have the advantage of allowing the testing of a product on all 3 mutually perpendicular directions while keeping the product in the same orientation relative to gravity.

We can replicate/accelerate field vibration and shock found in a variety of conditions:
  • Sinusoidal excitation (resonance dwell and sweep)
  • Random vibration (found in road/transportation simulation)
  • Sine-on-random vibration (typical of helicopter excitations)
  • Random-on-random vibration (tracked vehicles)
  • Classical shock (1/2-sine, trapezoidal, sawtooth)
  • Shock Response Spectrum (SRS)
This new system also comes with 8 accelerometer channels to acquire vibration response at various locations on the unit under test (UUT).

ATS can now test larger items and offers even more scheduling flexibility with the addition of this new system.
