* when FFT spectrum analyzer is connected over Ethernet, the system response delay increases by an order of magnitude as compared to USB-connection, and the system might not complete resonating products or shapes with a sudden level drop. The table shows values for the FFT spectrum analyzer connected by USB.

ZET 017-U16 Shaker controller represents a software and hardware suite based on FFT spectrum analyzer. ZET017-U is designed for testing specimen,  hardware, and other products, which can be exposed to the impact of random vibration or harmonic vibration when being transported or in the course of operation. These tests mainly involve the following vibrations impacts to the specimen:

Shaker controller: automated system

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, configure the parameters and press “Start” button! Besides, this system is significantly cheaper than the analogs currently available on the market.

The vibration exciter is controlled by FFT spectrum analyzer using ZETLAB VIBRO programs: sinusoidal signal, broadband random vibration, classic impact, vibration impact. In these programs, you can set the test type to be carried out on 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 the vibration exciter according to the customized level of vibration set by the user, which must be maintained at the reference point. The system maintains the set level automatically, regardless of any external impacts to the specimen.
