Dynamic

We offer a full complement of vibration, shock, and other dynamic tests to Commercial and International requirements in its Dynamic Test Laboratory. Dynamic Testing is necessary to ensure products will function as designed during transportation, installation, and throughout the product’s life when installed in its intended environment. Products typically evaluated include integrated circuits, circuit packs, shelves, indoor type frames and cabinets, and outdoor type cabinets.

MTS 1818 Shock System

Our Dynamic Test Laboratory equipment capabilities are:
  • Electrodynamic and Hydraulic Vibration Tables - Five vibration tables capable of performing Sine, Random, Synthesized Classical Shock, Random on Random, Sine on Random, and Transient Capture type tests.
  • Mechanical Shock Equipment - Two vertical drop tables controlled by universal programmers that are capable of reproducing half sine, saw tooth, and trapezoidal pulses.
  • Handling and Installation Drop Equipment - Capable of performing tests on packaged and unpackaged equipment up to 4,000 pounds.
