Once again Thermotron is shaking up the vibration industry by introducing its versatile 8000-force pound electrodynamic shaker, the DSX-8000. This electrodynamic shaker features a lightweight 16″ (40.6 cm) diameter magnesium armature able to produce acceleration levels up to 150 g. Rated at 8,000 lbf (35.6 kN) for sine and random tests, the DSX-8000 also features best in class shock performance for low-frequency, high-displacement tests.
Thermotron’s dynamic centering system with optical sensors ensures that the armature remains centered during travel. The system offers vibration test solutions for a wide range of applications, including automotive squeak and rattle testing, military transportation testing, avionics/aerospace vibration test requirements, and stress screening applications. It is air cooled and fully compatible with environmental test chambers. The DSX-8000 is able to support payloads up to 1,000 Lbs (454 Kg) and offers velocity up to 145 ips (3.68 mps).
The DSX-8000 is controlled by Thermotron’s exclusive VCS-3200 Vibration Control System. Updated for Windows XP®, VCS-3200 software is available for accurate sine, random, shock, resonant search and dwell, real data acquisition and playback (RDAP), random-on-random and sine-on-random capabilities. The software runs off Thermotron’s VCS-3200 Vibration Control System platform. The VCS-3200 features over 85dB of dynamic range, a selectable resolution up to 3,200 lines and a user selectable frequency range up to 3,000 Hz.
