New High-Frequency Vibration Exciter

New sensor technologies based on micro-mechanical structures (MEMS) increasingly require mechanical tests in the frequency range beyond 20 kHz. In this high frequency range, the trick is to stimulate the DUT with well-defined oscillations without causing uncontrolled vibration and transverse movements by resonance of the exciter. The new SE-11 vibration exciter provides the ability to excite the DUT with very low lateral accelerations to the main axis of motion in the frequency range of 1 kHz - 50 kHz.
