Full technical details on the SRS Analysis capabilities of the SignalCalc 900, can be found on our website. 


Acoustic Analysis - Visit our website

Whilst we focus on vibration control, it can be difficult to separate acoustics and vibration as they’re often linked. In terms of acoustic analysis, this is used to quantify noise or sound power that is being emitted from a product. Devices benefit from sophisticate functionality, including real-time octave measurements thanks to customisable octave bank filters, as well as synthesis from narrowband FFTs. Feel free to get in touch with us directly, if you have any questions about acoustic analysis.


Vibration Controllers - Visit our website

The 900 Series benefits from cutting edge technology, completely transforming aspects of signal analysis and vibration controllers. Current vibration controllers from the 900 series feature sophisticated hardware, a new software interface and unbeatable shaker control algorithms. The vibration controllers themselves can be used in a wide range of applications, including random vibration control, SRS Synthesis Control and Time History Replication, just to name a few. To find out more about this solution, full details can be found on our website. Alternatively, you can give us a call if you have any specific queries.


Sine Vibration Control - Visit our website

Sine vibration control uses sinusoidal excitation to excite resonance within a test article and therefore test its durability. This data can then be used in the creation of custom reports, reviews and exports. Just some of the unique analysis that is available to users, includes data overly from multiple runs, image attachment, custom report templates and report generation on any computer. Further details on our sine vibration control, including technical information, can be found on our website.


Time History Recording Editor - Visit our website

The time history recording editor is a useful tool that allows for the editing and subsequent analysis of time domain data files. Users can utilise files from the 900 Series itself, or from another external source and then modify time histories graphically. As well as incorporating different events, editing can also include files being trimmed, resamples, filtered and scaled. To find out more, don’t hesitate to visit our website.


Random Vibration Control - Visit our website

Often vibration testing will involve very specific circumstances but in the field, products will face a wide range of vibrational stress. Random vibration control attempts to simulate the environments that a product will face in real-world settings. These tests can be either short or long-term and will excite all of the structure’s resonant frequencies at the same time. With such stringent testing and real-world validity, users can ensure that the products and structures in question are put through their paces.

Classical Shock Vibration Control - Visit our website

Classical shock control has a number of advantages when compared with other alternative forms of testing. For example, classic shock testing on a shaker is an extremely efficient, accurate and reliable way to test products against high-acceleration transients. Users who choose classical shock control will also have access to a wide range of classic pulse types, ranging from rectangular, triangular and half sine, to sineburst. For more information on this form of testing, customers can visit our website.


Mixed Mode Control (Sine on Random, Random on Random) - Visit our website

There are circumstances in vibration testing when a more unique approach is required and this is where mixed mode vibration control comes in. Mixed mode testing simulates environments in which there are two different types of vibrational energies—broadband and cyclic. A real-world example of this would be helicopter operation, as the turbulence causes random vibration and the rotor shaft causes sine vibration. If you’d like to lean more about this type of testing, don’t hesitate to visit our website.


Sine Resonance Search and Dwell Control - Visit our website

Testing the fatigue life of a product or structure is extremely useful as it allows you to identify weaknesses and improve quality and reliability. One of the best tests for ascertaining fatigue is resonance search and dwell, as its repeatable and tests for both low and high cycle fatigue. It’s also worth noting that these tests offer validity as the stress is applied to the locations on the subject that would experience in its natural lifetime. If you have any questions on this type of testing, feel free to get in touch with us directly, via prone or mail.


SRS Shock Synthesis and Control - Visit our website

Whilst much vibration control testing is used to simulate relatively normal environments, such as workplaces, there are more extreme alternatives. SRS shock control is a specialised form of testing which simulates the vibration environment during an earthquake or pyrotechnic shock. Alongside simulation and measurement, users can also benefit from many advanced features. These include fully customisable plots, data overlay, data export and the ability to access this data from any computer.  


Time History Replication Control - Visit our website

Replication of data is a powerful and useful tool but it can be difficult to achieve with existing methods. Fortunately, the 900 Series Time History Replication software makes the process much easier, minimising the amount of data acquisition and control hardware required. For example, you could record data in the field using a device such as the Abacus 901 and then replicate this data on your shaker. Full technical details on our time history replication control capabilities can be found on the website.
