Calibration sequence

The main purpose of the vibration exciter calibration is to ensure various test conditions reproduction within the specified tolerance limit and, thus, to confirm the operational state of the shaker system. The shaker calibration system is suitable both for primary and the subsequent calibrations of the vibration exciters.

For user’s convenience, some stages of the calibration procedure are performed in automated mode:

  • Evaluation of acceleration and frequency non-uniformity;
  • Evaluation of acceleration, displacement, and frequency ranges;
  • Evaluation of acceleration and displacement harmonics ratio;
  • Evaluation of lateral components ratio;
  • Evaluation of vibration irregularity ratio.

Some stages of the calibration procedure require the use of the shaker controller together with the task-specific software package (e.g., Shaker controller ZET 017-U), to be used in addition to the shaker calibration system components.
