The 2002E Miniature Electrodynamic Inertial Shaker is a new compact and lightweight shaker in The Modal Shop's shaker lineup.
The 2002E is capable of producing up to 2 lbf (9 N) peak sine force over a wide 20 Hz to 3000 Hz frequency range. The 2002E is attached either directly to the test structure, through a PCB Model 288D01 Impedance Head, or through a PCB Model 208C Series Force Transducer via the 0.141 in (3.58 mm) diameter through-hole (mounting screws included). The shaker can be mounted in any orientation eliminating test fixture requirements for most testing applications.
With its compact size and correspondingly low cost, the 2002E is ideal for a variety of applications. It will allow automotive NVH engineers the ability to actively vibrate structures in locations that are not accessible with a typical modal shaker or modal hammer. This makes the 2002E a valuable tool for transfer path analysis or active noise and vibration cancellation studies in the automotive industry. It can also be used for traditional transmissibility and structural test studies on any number of components such as aerospace composite panels and frames. The 2002E can be powered by The Modal Shop's 2100E21-100 SmartAmp™, the upcoming 2000E miniature Class-D amplifier, or any other user-owned power amplifier, adding to its flexibility as a tool in your testing lab.
