Connection of VCS – ZET017 to a shaker with vacuum-tube amplifier


Is it possible to connect the VCS to an obsolete shaker system with vacuum-tube amplifier?


It is possible in the case if the amplifier has an output for external generator connection. If the output is of BNC type, there should be no difficulties. For another output type it is necessary to use additional cable.

The main condition for normal operation of  VCS-ZET 017-U  with any amplifier is the circuit coincidence. Different grounding levels of amplifier and VCS cause distortion that may negatively affect the test perfomance or damage the equipment. Grounding level control can be performed with a multimeter.
