Accelerometer Calibration

VR’s accelerometer calibration performs automatic and accurate calibration and verification of IEPE accelerometers and charge mode piezoelectric accelerometers/transducers in your lab. Dytran model 3123 Reference Accelerometer The module provides an easy interface to calculate accelerometer sensitivity. The user can perform a sine sweep controlled on a reference accelerometer to produce a calibration report while calculating the accelerometer sensitivity at the defined frequency.

Quick & Easy Calibration

Calibrate a vibration accelerometer to determine its sensitivity at various frequencies of interest. Vibration Research uses the most convenient and least expensive technique (per ISO 16063-21): the back-to-back comparison method, approved by the International Society of Automation (ISA).

10-minute Procedure

  • Preloaded Sine test profile: select, adjust if needed, and run
  • Automatically generate a report (customizable template included)
  • Compare sensitivities and save new values; VibrationVIEW reads and re-writes to TEDS

Why Calibrate?

  • Early detection of incorrect sensor sensitivity​
  • Discover sensor defects​
  • Confidence in your test results

Save Time & Money

Vibration Research knows your time is valuable. Its accelerometer calibration package eliminates the need to pack and ship each accelerometer to be calibrated, reducing your downtime.

You can use the calibration package on all your accelerometers for one price, time and time again. Simply set up each unit for calibration, run the 10-minute verification procedure, retrieve the report, and continue with your day.
