Low Frequency Portable Shaker Table

Confirm Slow Speed Machinery Vibration Alarms | Model 9200D

The 9200D Low Frequency Portable Shaker Table is the world’s first and only ISO 17025 accredited, NIST-traceable portable shaker table designed for verifying critical vibration instrumentation used to protect slow speed rotating equipment. Until now, technicians were required to remove moving coil velocity sensors, low frequency accelerometers, and proximity probes during an outage and send these instruments to a separate lab for calibration. Battery-powered, rugged and portable, the Model 9200D brings low frequency calibration to the plant floor, allowing users to verify all aspects of their measurement chain and confirm correct operation of critical alarm thresholds.



  • Verify Alert and Alarm Settings
  • Simulate Vibration at Actual Running Speeds
  • Rugged, Lightweight, and Battery-Powered Design
  • On-Site ISO 5041 HVM Calibrations
  • Confirm Entire Measurement Channel
  • Proximity Probe Adaptor Kit


  • Hydro and Nuclear Power
  • Human Vibration Measurement
  • Seismic, Building Vibration
  • Moving Coil Vibration Sensors
  • Condition Monitoring System, Process Control, DCS and SCADA
  • Portable Vibration Meters and Analyzers

An internal high-resolution quartz reference accelerometer provides unparalleled accuracy while the rugged carbon fiber composite armature supports heavy payloads. A durable Pelican® Storm Case and long battery life make it ideal for use on the plant floor. Closed-loop control shortens calibration time. The 9200D can be scaled in displacement, velocity, or acceleration (metric or English units) with 0.7 Hz to 2 kHz frequency range (42 to 120 000 CPM).

Portable Shaker Table Return on Investment

  • Cost Savings – With no moving parts, piezoelectric instrumentation and proximity probes can generate reliable output for years. Too often these sensors are deemed disposable, tossed away and replaced on an annual basis. Save the maintenance budget – validate old sensors instead of throwing them away.
  • Promote Safety – Catastrophic machinery failures have dangerous consequences. The vibration protection system is often the last line of defense. Simulating vibration faults and testing the system ensures your teammates are safe on the job.
  • Reduce Downtime – Machinery failure without warning becomes a thing of the past with a field tested vibration protection system.
  • Improve Personnel Efficiency – Stop “chasing ghosts.” Checking nuisance vibration trips with a portable shaker table identifies cabling faults, scaling errors, programming errors, and sensor sensitivity shift allowing analysts to focus the real goal: uptime.
  • Strengthen Departmental Relationships & Confidence – Often false vibration alarm trips are just as costly as late trips. The Operations Department scoffs as Reliability struggles to explain the shutdown to management. Confidence in the system erodes quickly, which costs time and money. Field verification promotes confidence and uncovers system errors.
  • Reduced Business Interruption Insurance Risk – Calibration and confirmation of alarms in the vibration protection system is part of the recommended best practices issued by risk engineers representing the world’s primary insurance underwriters. Checks, certifications, and audits of the condition monitoring system – like a well maintained fire protection system – make the plant more desirable in a potentially hard insurance market.
  • Peace of Mind – The calibrator is a low cost insurance policy against vibration protection system failure. When that $1 million asset begins to fail, will you get a critical text to your cell phone from the monitoring system? Simulating vibration faults at various running speeds allows reliability managers to ensure they will.
