Transducer Calibration

Transducer calibration procedure is necessary to ensure the accuracy and reliability of the sensors in the course of your tests. RULA Technologies presents an extensive, easy-to-user transducer calibration software.

The software provides traceable back-to-back calibration of vibration sensors according to ISO 16063-21.

The program module has advanced technical capabilities:

  • User-defined sine excitation;
  • Random signal excitation;
  • Calibration by substitution method;
  • Triaxial measurements in one protocol.

Flexible application

The software is intended for calibrating transduces in production, as well as for research and development. For the latter purpose, the system supports manual calibration mode.

Intuitive Interface

The software provides an innovative, yet user-friendly and comprehensive interface, which allows calibrating a wide range of vibration sensors.

Features

A complete vibration transducer calibration system consists of:
Calibration shaker(s); 
Reference accelerometer(s);
RL-C21 vibration control system;
Calibration module of VisProbe SL software.

Calibration standards compliance

Calibration is a strictly standardized procedure. Our software is made according to the most recognizable standards:

  • ISO 16063-1:1998 Methods for the calibration of vibration and shock transducers — Part 1: Basic concepts
  • ISO 16063-21:2003 Methods for the calibration of vibration and shock transducers — Part 21: Vibration calibration by comparison to a reference transducer
  • ISO 16063-31:2009 Methods for the calibration of vibration and shock transducers — Part 31: Testing of transverse vibration sensitivity
Calibration standards compliance

Comprehensive reports

After any calibration, VisProbe SL automatically creates  a comprehensive report, which includes:

  • measurement results in the form of tables and graphs;
  • detailed information about the reference sensor;
  • calibration date and place, etc.
Comprehensive reports

Shorter calibration time

RULA VisProbe SL software provides calibration with Random signal excitation, during which  the shaker is excited with a random signal containing all the frequencies in the sensor frequency range. 
This way reduces the calibration time to three or four minutes.

Shorter calibration time

Research and development

Besides the automated measurements, a manual measurement mode is implemented in VisProbe SL.
The mode allows specifying the frequency and amplitude (in acceleration, velocity or displacement units) manually and checking the response from the sensors. The mode is highly useful for research purposes.
