a program from the scope of ZETLAB VIBRO software suite
The admissible limits of test parameters, used for control of test performance are displayed in the “Interruption” tab of the program. If the actual parameters do not correspond to the values specified in this tab, the test procedure will be suspended.
In the case if several independent control channels are used, the corresponding parameters should be set in the “Phase” tab:
- if only one device is used, the generator mode should be “In phase“;
- if two or more devices are used, the generator mode should be “In phase“, “In phase opposition“;
- when three or more devices are used, the generator operation mode can be set as “In phase”, “In phase opposition” and “Wave”.
Another feature of this new software is the preview of testing results for the set profile, which is produced based on the parameters obtained in the course of the pre-test. The correspondings graphs are available in the “Channels” section.
The information displayed at these graphs is intended for general information purposes. It displays the data, that is likely to be obtained for the selected test profile.
The preview of the test data displays the statistical data relating to the loading of the shaker system in the course of vibration testing. This option allows to evaluate capabilies of the system prior to tests performance, thus ensuring normal operation of the instruments used for testing purposes.
In the bottom section of Harmonic vibration program window there is Events log, which is used for saving the data, which has been accumulated in the course of program operation.
To start the vibration testing, use the Start key.
The user can start or suspend the recording of electrical signals from active channels of the VCS systems using the Recording key.
During the test process, it is possible to view the changes of the tested specimen parameters via the control channel in real-time mode (this function is available as the “Additional graphs” option).
