The Accelerometer extends the VibraAS possibilities to contact vibration measurements. With the accessory the VibraAS is able to measure vibrations on machines, oscillators, motors or any another source of vibrations in laboratory environment. Students can obtain valuable experience with measurement of vibrations and learn basic work principles with regard to accelerometers. Bundled software can analyze the measured data from vibration sensors and export either raw data or simplified image bitmap. The software also includes functions for calculating the spectrum of measured vibrations. NOTE: For proper functionality the control unit is necessary device. Software is included.
The accelerometer is a suitable tool for the detection of: :
- determinate deflections
- character of vibrations
- dominant frequencies of mechanical oscillators
- determining stiffness of spring
