ITM’s Custom Kits Simplify Vibration Testing

Whether you are diagnosing a mechanical failure in anything from trucks to trains or elevators to excavators, it seems vibration is often the key to tracking down the root cause.

At ITM, we have customized a Vibration Test Kit that is helping our clients isolate vibration levels no matter if they are collecting data for operating deflection shapes (ODS) or measuring overall vibration levels for ISO standards.

Depending on your needs, our rugged and portable Vibration Test Packages will be built with as few as 4 channels or as many as 32 channels and include National Instruments cDAQ chassis combined with NI-9234 accelerometer input cards, power supply, and industrial accelerometers.

In addition, you can use ITM’s iTestSystem software to stream the vibration and rotational speed data from the cDAQ chassis directly to your laptop.

Find out more about our Vibration Test Kit options, and let us know if we can assist your next project.

Explore ITM’s Rugged Data Acquisition Systems for Rent

If the right tool doesn’t exist, build it.

For years that has been the approach ITM engineers have taken when it comes to gathering data and building tests for clients. And after decades of performing structural testing in aerospace, off-highway, automotive, industrial and many other environments, we’ve built up an impressive line of custom Rugged Data Acquisition (RAC) Systems that are now available for rent.

Our RAC systems integrate NI hardware solutions with our proprietary iTestSystem data acquisition software, so you can be sure these units are technically sound.

At ITM we believe that our ability to make tough measurements for clients is often only limited by the availability of the ideal tool for gathering the right data. In other words, necessity really is the mother of invention.

So whether you need to do some long-term, high-speed in-vehicle data logging or you need a portable and rugged system that can withstand harsh environments while gathering high channel counts, our RAC systems will do the job — or we will customize one that will.

Check out our lineup of Rugged Data Acquisition Systems.

iTestSystem Overview

The iTestSystem (iTS) 2011 Platform enables the user to organize, acquire and view important engineering data using National Instruments (NI) C-Series hardware.  This video shows cDAQ hardware configuration, sensor configuration, data acquisition, data logging, and real-time data viewing.  It also shows the roving hammer impact test DAQ application.
