Modal Shaker 60 lbf

Ground Vibration Testing Exciter | Model 2060E

The Modal Shop’s Modal Shaker Model 2060E, a lightweight electrodynamic modal exciter, is capable of providing up to 60 lbf (267 N) of peak force excitation in a small footprint weighing just 37 pounds (17 kg). With an extended 1.4" (36 mm) stroke enhancing input levels at low frequencies and useful frequency range beyond 6 kHz, the 2060E is suitable for structural testing and experimental modal analysis applications, including single and multiple inputs (SIMO and MIMO) using random, burst random, sine dwell or chirp excitation signals.

Highlights

  • Through-hole armature with chuck and collet attachment provides simple set-up with modal stingers.
  • Lightweight and portable – weighing just 37 lb (17 kg)
  • Trunnion base provides flexibility and easy set-up when aligning the shaker and choosing best exciter location(s)
  • 1.4" extended stroke for low frequency and broad frequency range supply adequate input energy for most modal applications
  • Forced air cooling sufficient to meet full shaker performance (60 lbf/133 N) specifications

The 2060E modal exciter is supplied in a trunnion base allowing full rotation for easy setup. The through-hole armature design with chuck and collet attachment is ideal for use with either traditional modal stinger rods or piano wire stingers. These stingers greatly simplify test setup with an easy connection to the force sensor and test structure, and help decouple cross-axis force inputs, minimizing input force measurement errors while using the modal shaker. For horizontal force inputs, the 2060E adapts directly to The Modal Shop’s Lateral Excitation Shaker Stand Model 2050A.

All of the Modal Shop modal shakers are supplied in a trunnion base allowing full rotation for easy setup. The through-hole armature design with chuck and collet attachment is ideal for use with either traditional modal stinger rods, like the TMS 2150G12 1/16” diameter stingers, or piano wire stingers, like the TMS K2160G piano wire stinger kit with force sensor quick disconnect. These stingers greatly simplify test setup with an easy connection to the force sensor and test structure, and help decouple cross-axis force inputs, minimizing or eliminating input force measurement errors while using the modal shaker. For horizontal force inputs, the modal shakers adapt directly to The Modal Shop’s 2050A lateral excitation shaker stand. Using four turnbuckles, the modal shaker is supported by its trunnion base and can be adjusted over a wide horizontal and vertical area relative to the test structure.
