X-Act Universal Shaker

X-Act exciters – Compact universal shakers for modal analysis and vibration testing

The X-Act 325 is a universal electromagnetic shaker with a force of 300N sine pk and a maximum displacement of 25mm pk-pk. Unlike conventional shaker systems, the X-Act 325 can be cooled with air or water as standard. The much more efficient water cooling allows the X-Act 325 to operate continuously and quietly at high excitation forces where normally only larger, more expensive and noisy air-cooled shakers can be used. The compact dimensions and low weight enable mobile use and facilitate the positioning and alignment of the system. For component testing, an exchangeable vibration table with a diameter of 115mm and integrated M6 threaded inserts is used. For modal analysis the vibration table is simply exchanged against a collet chuck. Due to the low weight of the moving element, interactions with the structure to be examined are minimized while maximizing the maximum possible peak accelerations. A through-hole in the armature also allows the use of pre-stressed wires to introduce the generated forces into the structure under investigation. When using a stinger, the length of the stinger can be adjusted by clamping it in a chuck.
