New Modal Shaker Available in Equipment Rental Program

The Modal Shop, a PCB Group Company, announces that their 100lbf electrodynamic exciter designed for experimental modal analysis is now readily available as part of their comprehensive rental services program supporting the sound and vibration testing industry.  The 2100E11 modal shaker features a through-hole armature with a chuck and collet stinger connection for easy setup and attachment to the test structure.  Weighing just 33 lbs, the unit provides excellent force to mass ratio with nearly half the weight and twice the force as other common modal shakers.  The unit also employs two critical protection features – an electrical fuse preventing overcurrent and a mechanical limit switch preventing overtravel – which ensure that your equipment investment and test schedule are both safe and secure.

The shaker is available for monthly rental by itself or as a kit with either the 2050E05 shaker amplifier or the 2100E18 power amplifier.  Accelerometers and force transducers from PCB Piezotronics are also available for rental, as well as test software and data acquisition systems.  You can rent anything from a single piece of instrumentation equipment to a complete turnkey system.

The Modal Shop has been offering sound and vibration test equipment rental services for nearly two decades.  The program provides well-maintained and calibrated instrumentation for short term testing needs or for times when capital budgets just aren’t what they used to be.  As with our products, all rental services are backed by the PCB Group Total Customer Satisfaction Policy, which guarantees satisfaction or your money refunded.
