The Model 9100D Portable Shaker Table performs on-site calibrations of accelerometers, velocity sensors and proximity probes from 5 Hz to 10 kHz. Designed to withstand the harsh conditions of the industrial environment, the 9100D can be taken directly to the location of installed sensors, eliminating downtime and making regular calibration a viable option.

  • Validate from 5 Hz to 10 kHz (300 to 600 000 CPM)
  • Extensive 18 hour battery life
  • Supports payloads up to 800 grams
  • Test accelerometers, velocity sensors, proximity probes
  • Test complete measurement chains on the plant floor
Low Frequency Portable Shaker Table

Low Frequency Portable Shaker Table - 9200D
(Learn more on www.modalshop.com)

The 9200D Low Frequency Portable Shaker Table is designed for verifying critical vibration instrumentation used to protect slow speed rotating equipment as low as 0.7 Hz (42 CPM). 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 9200D brings low frequency calibration to the plant floor.

  • Calibrate from 0.7 Hz to 2 kHz (42 to 120 000 CPM)
  • Long lasting 14 hour battery life
  • Rugged, lightweight design is ideal for industrial applications
  • Closed loop control reduces testing time
  • Confirms entire measurement channel: sensor, cabling, signal conditioning and data acquisition systems
