This equipment allows to analyze the vibrations of structures, telescopes, instruments, etc. with the aim, in most cases, of verifying that they comply with the applicable requirements or, in other cases, to determine the origin of these vibrations to proceed to their elimination or damping.The vibration measurement and analysis equipment has an 8-channel signal conditioning system, with 4 accelerometers for structural analysis (0.5-3 KHz) and 2 general purpose accelerometers (1-10 KHz). It also has an impact hammer and a data acquisition system.
The Mechanical Integration and Verification Laboratory provides the basic and specific infrastructures needed for the development and integration of the medium-sized mechanical systems developed at the Technology Division.
