Exciting new changes to Thermotron Industries vibration systems has added a versatile 2,250 force-pound vibration system to their shaker line up. The DSX-2250 Shaker features a 12″ diameter magnesium armature that provides acceleration levels up to 100 g. The compact vibration system is rated at 2,250 lbf for sine and random tests and features superior 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-2250 supports payloads up to 500 lbs (227 Kg) and offers maximum velocity up to 170 ips (4.32 mps).

The DSX-2250 Shaker 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. Eight input channels are standard.
