The IMI Sensors division of PCB Piezotronics (PCB) has released the Model 699A02 portable, lightweight, battery powered industrial handheld shaker. It is designed to verify accelerometer and vibration system performance, as well as confirm the operation of interconnecting cables, switching devices and monitoring systems. The unit operates at 159.2 Hz and delivers a controlled, 1g rms or 1g peak acceleration to test accelerometers and vibration sensors weighing up to 250g. Model 699A02 is appropriate for field troubleshooting predictive maintenance and condition based monitoring systems, and it can be used to verify sensor calibration and performance right at the machine, including permanently mounted accelerometers. Additional features include automatic shut-off to preserve battery life; an external power jack for AC compatibility and extended operation; mechanical stops for overload protection; and capability to perform up to 1,600 operating cycles in the field. Model 699A02 comes standard with a durable carrying pouch with belt loop. The unit also meets NIST traceability requirements.
