Shaker system installation


What are the requirements and tips for shaker system (vibration exciter) installation and mounting?


Compact shaker systems used for sensors calibration and verification (for instance, TV 50018), can be placed on tables and small cabinets for the operator’s convenience. However, in order to avoid resonance, one should use special furniture with thick table boards and install the shaker system on the legs (most of such shaker systems have rubber legs).

Medium-sized shaker systems should be installed on the floor or a foundation.

Larger shaker systems are installed on the floor. Such systems may be equipped with pneumatic discharge module neutralizing shaker system vibrations occurring in phase opposition to the tested object oscillation. For large shaker systems that are not equipped with pneumatic discharge module, it is necessary to provide a vibration-isolation foundation.
