High-End Vibration Analysis in a Compact Package
What’s Causing the Vibration?
There are many reasons why vibrations occur. An imbalanced disc, for example, can cause periodic vibrations that are felt during each revolution. Some vibrations aren’t necessarily an indication of a problem, but a normal operating condition of mechanical systems. It’s important to know the difference between types of vibrations in order to avoid overlooking serious issues or making unnecessary repairs. High-quality vibration analysis equipment assists with evaluation and gives valuable insight to the possible cause and source.
How Vibration Analysis Works
The ACES Edge
Performing rapid and precise aircraft vibration testing can be difficult in a busy hangar or maintenance facility. Having the right instruments can often make all the difference. Our vibration analysis instruments deliver speed and reliability in a compact package. The ACES line of Vibration and Performance Analyzers allow for high-end analysis of vibration, along with acoustics and balance (transient, rotor track, propeller) as well.
They’re engineered to deliver clear-cut results quickly, at speeds rivaled only by manufacturer test cells. Four channel data acquisition and SmartTach direct engine speed measurement provide unparalleled accuracy. Multiple speed inputs and sensor flexibility allow even more versatility for customized testing. ACES has combined powerful functionality with convenient 1GB memory storage and multiple USB port connectivity in the Viper II for a testing solution that makes data more accessible.
