Germany-based supplier of maintenance technology, Prüftechnik, has established a new calibration laboratory for its condition monitoring vibration sensors. The laboratory includes two state-of-the-art shakers on a solid concrete-granite foundation that enable an even-more-precise calibration of sensors.

“Thanks to the high weight of the base of 7.6 t and decoupling of this foundation from the remainder of the building, faulty measurements caused by building vibrations are excluded,” the company said in a press release.

The two new high-frequency shakers can generate vibrations in the ranged of 1 – 500 Hz and 5 – 50 000 Hz. “With that, the analysis and calibration possibilities exceed far beyond the limits of requested standards and measuring tolerances,” the company added.

The new laboratory will also speed up the calibration time with calibration of one sensor taking just a minute, providing an “enormous advantage of saving factory calibration time during volume production.” End-to-end calibration will also be offered in the future.
