IMV-SmartTM technology

① Improvement of performance
  • Improvement in excitation force

    When compared with the conventional i- & J-series, the A-series has increased relative excitation force.

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

    Improvement in excitation force

  • ■Standard 3.0 inp-p displacement
    *Only for A30, A45, A65, A74

    A-series has a displacement of 3.0 inp-p (3-inch stroke), which provides a good balance within the specifications for velocity, acceleration and displacement. This single system can be used for a very wide variety of tests.

    Standard 76.2mmp-p displacement

  • ■Increase in frequency range

    In addition to the increased displacement of 3.0 inp-p, the maximum frequency range is also increased when compared to the i- and J-series.

    Increase in frequency range

  • ■Adoption of new module

    Featuring a power amplifier with an upgraded power element, the A-series achieves low noise and high efficiency. This upgrade is standard for all A-series models.

    Adoption of new module

  • ■High-velocity shock testing

    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 138 in/p-p shock velocity testing.

② User-friendly and secure
  • ■Lower power consumption

    In comparison with the same class of conventional systems (i, J-series), the A-series achieves lower power consumption. Energy savings are increased across all force ranges thanks to an automatic energy-saving function.

    Lower power consumption

  • ■International safety standards

    A-series complies with international safety standards.
