ZET 017-U4 Vibration controller represents a software and hardware suite based on FFT spectrum analyzer. ZET 017-U4 Vibration controller is designed for testing specimen, hardware, and other products, which can be impacted by random vibration or harmonic vibration when transported and operated. These tests mainly involve following vibrations impacting the sample:

Automated shaker controller

Now you don’t have to spend much time on settings and tests in manual mode. All you need to do is to select the test mode, set parameters, and press “Start” button! Besides, this system is significantly cheaper than foreign counterparts available on the market.

Shaker is controlled by FFT spectrum analyzer using ZETLAB VIBRO programs: sinusoidal signal, broad-band random vibration, classic impact, vibro impact. In this programs, you can set the test type to be carried out on the shaker stand and to be controlled by FFT spectrum analyzer over the feedback channel.

To affect the specimen with vibration (random or harmonic) similar to typical equipment operation, shaker controller provides generation of the control signal for shaker stand according to the customized level of vibration set by the user, which must be sustained at the reference measurement point. The system maintains the set level automatically, regardless of any external impacts to the specimen.
