Vibration table enables test of small components

May 7, 2014. Cincinnati Sub-Zero’s (CSZ) new TCB-1.3 bench-top vibration table is suitable for reliability testing of compact products and electronics. The dual-purpose system is available in a 16” x 16” (40-cm x 40-cm) table size and may be used as a stand-alone vibration table for vibration testing or placed inside of an environmental chamber for combined vibration and temperature testing, offering customers’ flexibility and greater return on their investment.

Equipped with an all-axis vibration system, the TCB-1.3 utilizes four pneumatically-actuated vibration hammers providing 6-DOF random vibration along x, y, and z axes with roll, pitch, and yaw rotation. The chamber comes standard with two accelerometers, one for control and one vibration monitor with a vibration range of 1g to 60g RMS.

Design includes a removable lid and easy-lift off control console to allow the table base to be placed inside a typical 16 cu. ft. or larger chamber and can be operated in a temperature range of -70°C to +168°C. Utilizing random vibration technology combined with an environmental chamber provides a cost-effective method to perform combined temperature/vibration testing.

Bob Nelson, vice president and general manager, said, “This table allows our customers to economically expand their testing capabilities and provides them with another tool to help discover product failures and make more robust products.”

The chamber is equipped with 115-V electrical plug allowing for easy installation. Standard features include vibration safety limit, audible alarm, and 2” access port. The vibration table incorporates CSZ’s EZT-430i Touch Screen Controller, equipped with features such as automated alarm text/email, remote monitoring and control, data logging, and trend plots. CSZ’s VibTrak software offers full control of the CSZ environmental chamber and bench-top table. Software also includes the ability to generate PSD curves.
