File Sharing and Reporting

All systems include our robust reporting package that automatically produces presentation-ready, sophisticated reports at the end of a testing sequence. Select a pre-packaged report template with the option to enter data such as technician, customer name, time, date, test parameters, and more or create a custom branded report. VibrationVIEW also supports report generation from PCs not connected to the controller.

Vibration Research Lifetime Hardware Warranty

Lifetime Hardware Warranty

Vibration Research warrants the controller hardware to be free of defects in materials and workmanship for the lifetime of the product.

Software Key Structure

Our control software modules are activated by electronic keys, so you can rent modules short-term for specific tests. Not sold on rental or purchase? Feel free to try it out for a week or two.

Remote Interlocks

Shut down your shaker, amplifier, and blower upon the completion of a test to save significant facility costs.

Mix & Match Controllers with Shakers

Product stack with ObserVR1000, VR9500 and VR10500

Control modules can be used independently on separate shakers or linked into a single stack for jobs requiring a higher channel count (up to 512 channels total).

This cost-effective solution creates substantial savings for our customers.

Product Reliability

Accelerated Testing

The lifespan of a crucial component or the overall product helps to set customer expectations. From accelerated test data, address vibrational issues to extend the service life.

FATIGUE DAMAGE SPECTRUM

Use recorded data to create an accelerated random test that represents a lifetime of fatigue damage.

Sine Tracking Analysis Generation (STAG) software icon VR

SINE TRACKING, ANALYSIS AND GENERATION (STAG)

Generate an accurate representation of an environment with dominant sinusoidal vibration and background random vibration, such as an engine environment.

Field Data Replication

With Field Data Replication (FDR), engineers can reproduce the service environment in the lab without acceleration. The software includes higher intensities than a random test by replicating a waveform from the field environment. The result is 1:1 replication.

Common Consumer Goods Specifications

  • MIL-STD-810G
  • MIL-STD-810H

Autonomous DAQ

OBSERVR1000 & VR MOBILE

The ObserVR1000 hardware can be controlled remotely with the VR Mobile application, which runs on a smartphone or tablet using a WiFi connection. Set up, monitor, and modify field data recording without a wired configuration.

VR Mobile

MONITOR TESTS REMOTELY: Observe live data recording from any mobile device. Select, start, and stop the test; analyze issues with a live FFT display.

SET UP AUTONOMOUS ACQUISITION: Define any number of triggering events to record data without interference.

CONNECT A TACHOMETER: Configure a dual or quadrature tachometer to measure rotation. Encoder types include wheel, rotational, or scalar.

DISPLAY GPS DATA: View position updates at about 1Hz along with GPS timebase synchronization. Then, play the GPS media files in sync with a waveform recording.
