Medical Vibration Testing

Vibration testing is critical in the medical industry as hidden fatigue damage can have significant consequences. Medical equipment can be exposed to vibration during transportation or everyday use, so both shock and vibration testing are necessary for the safety and reliability of the machinery.

Drop Shock

Test a packaged item’s capability to survive a drop, hit, impact, fall, or any other source of transient vibration that may occur in transit.

TRANSIENT CAPTURE

Record a transient waveform during data acquisition to use in post-processing. Define the triggering and data capture settings pre-test and allow the software to handle the rest. Use the captured waveform(s) alongside the acquired data or for analysis with the shock response spectrum (SRS).

Random Testing

Validate Package Durability

Fulfill test standards with random software features such as:

  • Control any electrodynamic or servo-hydraulic shaker
  • Frequency/amplitude breakpoint table (up to 9,999 entries)
  • Easy-to-read tabular format
  • Power spectral density (PSD) and probability density function (PDF) display
  • ASTM/ISTA test profile templates

Field to Lab

VibrationVIEW offers several test development methods to replicate the original environment of a product using recorded data. The result is a test profile that closely reflects—or is the equivalent to—the field environment.

FATIGUE DAMAGE SPECTRUM

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

Field Data Replication (FDR) software icon VR

FIELD DATA REPLICATION

Reproduce recorded field acceleration measurements on a shaker. The software performs an iterative time-history playback to replicate waveforms.

Random Import

Generate a random test profile from recorded data and analyze statistics from a time-history recording.

Customizable Automated Reporting

With custom reports, you can define the included parameters to adhere to test standards or customer requests. Add other details such as data vectors, graphs, screen images, test notes, and company branding.

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.
