Electromagnetic vibration generator
Meggitt Sensing Systems - Wilcoxon Research
Wilcoxon Research manufactures instruments which generate vibration for structural research and modal testing. The vibration generator or "shaker" produces dynamic force operating on the mass reaction principle. Basically, a heavy mechanical component of the shaker is caused to oscillate by the drive signal from the power amplifier. A reaction force is generated, which excites the structure under test. We manufacture two types of shakers - the low frequency electromagnetic shakers and the high frequency piezoelectric shakers.
