A vibration calibrator, like the SV 111 Vibration Calibrator, is a sophisticated instrument tailored for conducting on-site calibration checks. This type of calibrator is specifically designed to align with the BS EN ISO 8041 standard. Key components include a built-in triaxial reference accelerometer and a microprocessor-controlled shaker. These elements work in tandem to both generate and monitor vibration signals, ensuring accuracy and precision in the calibration process. The device detects any interference in the calibration signal, with any errors promptly indicated by three LEDs on the calibrator’s panel. This setup guarantees exceptional stability in both the calibration level and frequency, regardless of the mass of the object being tested. Such stability is crucial for accurate calibration, making the device an essential tool in various technical and industrial settings in the UK.
What is the use of vibration calibrator?
The primary use of a vibration calibrator is the verification of both uniaxial and triaxial vibration sensors. These include a range of accelerometers used in different contexts: hand-arm, whole-body, and industrial applications. The calibrator allows for checking these sensors at a variety of frequencies (from 16 Hz to 640 Hz) and vibration amplitudes (from 1 m/s² to 10 m/s²). This range ensures versatility for different sensor types and application requirements in the UK. The calibrator’s shaker can handle substantial weights, up to 1 kilogram at 16 Hz, making it particularly suitable for calibrating seatpad accelerometers for whole-body vibration assessments. Triaxial accelerometers are tested using various optional adapters, enabling orientation changes, while uniaxial sensors can be directly mounted on the calibrator’s plate. Additionally, industrial sensors equipped with magnets can be attached to the plate using a special disc.
