A-series

A-series

A new standard created by listening to our customers.

A wider range of test requirements and higher test specifications.
A-series meets the needs for such a versatile test environment.
Advanced automatic energy saving, high level of functionality and a protected test environment.
A series improves the working environment of vibration testing.

Features

① Improvement of performance
  • Improvement in excitation force

    When compared with the conventional i & J series, the A series increases the relative excitation force.

    ・Increased force per system power requirement
    ・Increased force per system mass
    ・Increased force per system size

    Improvement in excitation force

  • ■Standard 76.2 mmp-p displacement
    *Only for A30, A45, A65, A74

    A-series has a displacement of 76.2 mmp-p (3 inch stroke) which gives good balance between specification of velocity, acceleration and displacement. This single system can be used in a very wide variety of tests.

    Standard 76.2mmp-p displacement

  • ■Increase in frequency range

    In addition to the increased displacement of 76.2 mmp-p, the maximum frequency range is also increased when compared to the i, and J-series.

    Increase in frequency range

  • ■Cross-axis acceleration reduction

    A series dramatically reduces cross-axis (crosstalk) acceleration (horizontal vibration).
    Highly accurate testing is achieved.

    Cross-axis acceleration reduction

  • ■High velocity shock testing *Only for A30, A45, A65, A74

    Where a test requires a high shock velocity, traditional shaker systems use a matching transformer to achieve the necessary higher armature voltage.
    Since IMV’s ECO-system has complete control over the field level, the field value can be adjusted to increase the maximum shock velocity capability of the system. By entering the specified shock profile into IMV’s K2 controller. The field level in the shaker is automatically adjusted to ensure that the required velocity is achieved. A-series (EM amplifier model) provides a maximum of 4.6 m/s shock velocity testing.
