Basic Vibration Test Controller System

The Spider-81B vibration test controller is developed to meet the requirements of basic vibration testing applications. It has 4 inputs, 1 output, and 4 pairs of digital I/O.

Software Features

The software includes Random, Sine, Shock, and RSTD testing suites.

Black Box Mode: Operate Without a PC

The Spider-81B vibration test controller runs autonomously in Black Box mode without a PC connected. In this mode, a PC is used only to configure the control system before operation and to download data after the test is complete. During the test, the vibration test controller operates according to a preset schedule or from a choice of external devices using the digital I/O interface.

Intuitive User Interface

The vibration control software is further improved at the user interface level. More graphic guidance, wizards, and tools were added to make setup a snap. The interface has been rearranged to make it more logical and more useful. Event-Action rules, Abort-Sensitivity, and other new interface features are used to simplify operation. Searching through a large number of tests is easy with keywords.
