MS Testing have both the expertise and comprehensive range of vibration testing
equipment in order to replicate harsh environmental conditions.

Dynamic Testing - Vibration, Inclination and Shock

Vibration Testing

Vibration testing simulates one of the more challenging environmental conditions that equipment may encounter. These vibrations may take the form of periodic or random vibrations. Resonant vibrations can occur at relatively low frequencies, such as with marine vibration testing, or at higher frequencies such as deep sea ESS testing.

MS Testing have a comprehensive range of vibration testing equipment that can reproduce both low and high frequency conditions. The vibration testing conditions represent real life situations on a wide range of products from as small as a gas detector to as large as full 19" racks.

With a modern oil slip table and three independent electromechanical vibration machines, the laboratory is capable of testing multiple products simultaneously. Each machine is capable of vibration testing in three axes. We have the access and the lifting capability to test up to 250kg (please contact our Laboratory Manager for more details).

Most equipment can be attached straight to the vibration tables but some equipment requires specialist jigs and fixtures (cylindrical enclosures etc). MS Testing can help you with the design and manufacture of these, allowing your product to be securely fitted to our vibration machines providing repeatable, accurate results.

UKAS AccreditationCapabilities
BS EN 60068-2-6: 2007
IEC 60068-2-6: 2008
BS EN 60945: 2002
Vibration Sinusoidal (ambient temperature)
Frequency Range 2 to 3000 Hz
Maximum PK/PK Displacement 25mm

Inclination Testing

Our Dynamic inclination testing protocol simulates cyclic motions like those that are encountered by equipment in marine applications, such as pitch, yaw, and roll. The equipment is inclined over a period of time to simulate these conditions. The static inclination test requires that the equipment is positioned at fixed angles of inclination in all axes.

UKAS AccreditationCapabilities
IEC 60092-504: 2001 Static and Dynamic Inclination
Max angle: 45 degrees

Shock Testing

The shock test is performed to determine the suitability of equipment for its intended environment. Shocks as the result of rough handling, transportation or field operation can be simulated during each stage of the design process.

Shock is the result of suddenly applied forces or abrupt changes in direction. Shocks of this type may change the operating characteristics of the equipment or cause permanent damage, especially if the shock pulses are repetitive and are of a high enough level.
