Broad Frequency Options: 5 Hz – 10 kHz

Model 9100D Portable Shaker Table

The 9100D Portable Shaker Table is designed to withstand the harsh conditions of the industrial environment and can be taken directly to the location of installed sensors – eliminating downtime and making regular calibration a viable option. This product is ideal for:

  • API 670 compliant system testing
  • Troubleshooting, SIL Confirmation
  • 4-20 mA vibration transmitter linearity & vibration analyzer calibration reports

Model 9110D Portable Vibration Calibrator

The 9110D Portable Vibration Calibrator, building on the benefits of the 9100D, offers real-time calculation and display of test sensor sensitivity, saves calibration records and facilitates generation of calibration certificates. This product is ideal for:

  • Creating ISO 16063-21 compliant accelerometer calibration certificates
  • Dynamically creating proximity probe linearity calibration certificates
  • Discovering & troubleshooting proximity probe installation errors
  • Testing for accelerometer sensitivity drift

Low Frequency Options: 0.7 Hz – 2 kHz

Model 9200D Portable Shaker Table

The 9200D Low Frequency Portable Shaker Table is designed to verify critical vibration instrumentation used to protect slow speed rotating equipment as low as 0.7 Hz (42 CPM). This product is ideal for:

  • Loop checks on vibration monitoring systems protecting slow speed machinery
  • Testing emergency seismic detection and shutdown systems

Model 9210D Portable Vibration Calibrator

The 9210D Low Frequency Portable Vibration Calibrator allows generation of ISO 17025 compliant vibration calibration certificates, reducing perceived insurance risks and promoting a safe working environment. This product is ideal for:

  • Creating ISO 16063-21 compliant accelerometer calibration certificates for high sensitivity, low frequency transducers
  • Testing for sensitivity drift on velocity sensors, velometers or moving coil displacement sensors
