Vibration Testing – Where Should You Mount The Control Accelerometer?

Vibration Testing – Where Should You Mount The Control Accelerometer? When you contract a vibration testing services laboratory what you’re really doing is hiring someone to input a precise amount of energy into your DUT in a way that can be repeated. In order to do this the laboratory requires a detailed test method and[…]

Accelerometer Selection for Vibration Testing

Accelerometer Selection for Vibration Testing When you boil it down to its essentials, vibration testing is about introducing a specified level of energy into a DUT at or over a range of frequencies. We normally control and measure that energy with one or more accelerometers. Understanding the capabilities of these accelerometers is important to ensure[…]

Vibration Testing Buyers Guide

Vibration Testing Buyers Guide The validation laboratory can be a little intimidating for a product development engineer as their product get closer to production kick-off.  The product that they’ve been working on for months is to be put to test to determine if it will cope with the shocks and stresses of its service life[…]

Your Vibration Testing Fixture Shouldn’t Be An Afterthought

Your Vibration Testing Fixture Shouldn’t Be An Afterthought Resonances are great for musical instruments, but except for some very specialized vibration applications, resonances should be avoided in vibration fixtures. The objective of vibration testing is to introduce a specified level of energy into your device under test (DUT) at or over a range of frequencies.[…]

Vibration Testing Standards

Vibration Testing Standards The field of vibration testing, like all other areas of conformity assessment is regulated by a series of testing standards. Vibration testing standards, whether they are industry or international collaborations or are company specific, ensure that when products are tested in accordance with the standard, that they are stressed with appropriate stressors[…]
