VisProbe SL

Vibration control systems produced by RULA Technologies are used with a specialized software package for running vibration tests – VisProbe SL. Each software option in VisProbe SL can be activated independently of the others to meet the user’s requirements.

The graphic subsystem of VisProbe SL contains a convenient contextual menu, provides displaying several graphs in one window, autoscale option, unlimited number of user cursors, additional grid lines, textual notes.

Windows integration

VisProbe SL software integrates into any Windows system, starting from Windows 7 and later. To start work, you are to install the program using the installation wizard and run the software.

Supports all test types

VisProbe SL supports all types of vibration tests: Sine, Random, Sine on Random, Sine and Random on Random, Sine on Sine, SRS, TTH, time waveform replication etc. Furthermore, the software enables running and controlling Multishaker tests.

Test types

RL-C21 system can control up to 8 vibration shakers simultaneously with phase and amplitude control.

The system identification algorithm is based on computation of transfer-function matrix.

Supported test types are Sine, Random, Shock and FDR.

Sine Test

Sine tests with fixed or swept frequency provides highly accurate multi-channel control in real time. Resonance Search and Tracking Dwell option helps to determine FRF peaks of the object under test

Sine Test

Random

In case of Random Vibration the object under test is subjected to true random signal with the preset PSD and either Gaussian or non-Gaussian distribution. Random test provides a closer vibration impact to the actual environment.

Random

Shock

RL-C21 supports all the classical pulse types. The shocks are run automatically with the preset interval or in the manual mode. To get the best accuracy the system adjusts drive voltage before each shock.

Shock

SRoR

Besides the Random Test, the RL-C21 controller enables running the following types of tests:

  1. Sine on Random
  2. Random on Random
  3. Sine and Random on Random
  4. Sine on Sine
SRoR

Shock Response Spectrum

The SRS test provides the possibility to control the SRS of the device under test to match the required one. RL-C21 supports all the classical types of wavelets. The shocks are run automatically with the preset interval or in the manual mode. To get the best accuracy the system adjusts drive voltage before each shock.

Shock Response Spectrum

Transient Time History

The Transient Time History (TTH) test provides the possibility to simulate seismic impact. RL-C21 supports all the most commonly used types of waveforms, such as sine and cosine waves, damped sine wave, teardrop, etc.

Transient Time History

Field Data Replication

The Field Data Replication test provides the possibility to reproduce the acquired field data on a shaker in the lab. This test gives the user highly accurate reproduction of the environment avoiding imitations used in Sine, Random or SRoR tests.

Field Data Replication

Sequences of Tests

A test sequence provides the possibility to execute a set of tests by pressing one button. E.g. if the object under test is to be tested sine test first, and then a series of shocks, all the user need to do is to join these tests together into a sequence and start it.

Sequences of Tests

Transient Capture

The Transient Capture option provides the possibility to capture a transient waveform for post processing.

Transient Capture

Data Recording

The data from input channels are recorded into a file of specialized open format. Sample rate of the recording can be changed so that to achieve the optimal combination of the accuracy of data acquisition and the size of the created file.

The recorded file may be used in the “Field Data Replication” test or analyzed in any specialized software.

Data Recording

Fatigue Tests

RL-C21 provides the possibility to run specialized fatigue tests, intended to evaluate the durability of turbine and compressor blades. This mode enables running Sine test with several sine tones simultaneously, searching resonances and tracking several frequencies at the same time. Each sine tone is controlled independently to get the best possible accuracy.

Fatigue Tests

Features

VisProbe SL runs a pre-start check of the vibration set by providing sine vibration with the preset amplitude and frequency. This mode verifies the operation of the amplifier, controller, shaker and sensors. All the relevant information and graphs, such as spectrum scope and oscilloscope, are available to the user.

Test Duration

Test duration is not limited. Any test can be paused and resumed later on the user’s command. All the data, including test progress, frequency, test schedule, etc. will be saved.

Test Duration

Safety System

The software and systems has a great number of safety checks to protect the shaker and the object under test from being damaged. During the test the controller monitors the shaker limits, maximum drive voltage, sensor connection status and other critical parameters.

Safety System

Test Schedule

Test schedule is specified in a sequence of commands, e.g.: run the preset number of shocks at the preset level, change the level, run a sine sweep from one frequency to another, hold frequency, etc. There is an option to form a cycle of commands, which is executed repeatedly a number of times. 

Test Schedule

Report Creation

VisProbe SL software automatically produces ready-to-use, detailed reports at the end of a testing procedure. The user can select the information to be included in the report.
