ACCELEROMETER / VIBRATION CALIBRATION AT CIH EQUIPMENT:
The accelerometer lab at CIH Equipment uses the Bouche Lab's Model 5000C 'Comparison Accelerometer Calibration System' to calibrate piezoelectric accelerometers. Our lab is also equipped with a primary vibration standard shaker (Model 1000A) also manufactured by Bouche Labs. The armatures in these pneumatic shakers are made of beryllium to reduce transverse errors and provide superior high-frequency performance. The standard reference accelerometer is built inside the shaker which drastically increases accuracy.
Vibration is considered to be made up of two independent physical quantities namely, amplitude and frequency. So, depending on the type of vibration meter, a meter can determine its amplitude factor using either displacement, velocity or acceleration. Here, at CIH we are capable of checking each of the foresaid physical quantities.
