A vibration calibrator is used to simplify troubleshooting, verification and calibration processes for test systems. It is basically an instrument that electronically simulates a variety of outputs from common types of accelerometers. After a calibration is performed, the measurement system sensitivity is reported for the system, which consists of an
accelerometer with associated cable and signal conditioning. Calibration data is presented in a one-page certificate.
The vibration calibrator allows the user to adjust entire systems from transducers to measurement equipment. For calibration verification, reference test points are provided to verify the output of the internal sensor. The calibrator also enables the sensitivity calibration of the accelerometer or measurement system. which is performed by comparison to a NIST traceable precision standard accelerometer.
