BOUCHE LABS MODEL lOOOA & 1000AD

VIBRATION STANDARD CALIBRATION SHAKERS


BOUCHE LABORATORIES Model 1000A and 1000AD Vibration Standard Calibration
Shakers provide accurate sensitivity and frequency response calibrations at frequencies up
to 10 000 Hz and resonance frequency measurements at frequencies up to 65 000 Hz.
The 1000AD provides a larger displacement for higher accelerations at low frequencies.
The unique air bearing suspension virtually eliminates transverse motion and waveform
distortion. The standard accelerometer built into the shaker armature is calibrated by the
reciprocity method to provide a sensitivity uncertainty of 0.2% from 100 Hz to 2 000 Hz
and 0.5% from 2 000 Hz to 5 000 Hz. Adapter bushings are supplied to permit
calibration of almost any accelerometer by direct attachment to the armature/standard.

Frequency response calibration from 1 000 Hz to 50 000 Hz

NOTES
1. Continuous operation at high acceleration for more than one minute will result in heat buildup due to the heating
effect of the high armature current required. This will result in excessive heating of the integral standard
accelerometer causing its sensitivity to shift and increasing the uncertainty of the calibration. Normal calibration
procedures should limit continuous operation at levels greater than 10g to less than one minute, with a 50%
maximum duty cycle.

The superiorities of the Model 1000A/1000AD over conventional shakers:


1. The Bouche Labs Vibration Standard Calibration Shakers have a unique beryllium armature which has a f n of 49.5 kHz
in the Model 1000A and 36 kHz in the Model 1000AD, the highest of any electromagnetic shakers on the market. Compared
to all of the other useful engineering metals, only beryllium has an outstanding "square root of K over M", producing the
high f n . (The in-house NIST shaker is approximately 30 kHz, with an alumina-ceramic armature.) The High f n permits:
a) moving the "trouble spots" from the amplifier 3rd & 5th harmonic up and out of the useful usual frequency
range. Other shakers f n is about 6 kHz and the "trouble spots" are at 2,000 Hz for the 3rd harmonic and 1,200 Hz for the
5th harmonic.
b) permitting the plot of the test accelerometers resonance curve. The f n (precisely measured with a DMM) and
"Q" make a fine "fingerprint" by which to recognize later concealed-damage, even though subtle or minor, to the test
accelerometer.
2. The air bearings have 1 mil clearance and proper air pressure provides transverse motion that cannot be measured.
The 5% maximum on the data sheet is a conservative spec since transverse motion instrumentation is a problem.
3. Other shakers also have "trouble spots" in the 20 to 40 Hz region, depending on their suspension flexure first
resonance. Non-linearities put distortion in the waveshape. Cross-motion is the norm since the different flexures cannot be
built with precisely the same f n . The Bouche "suspension" is almost non-existent. It is long and has very soft O-rings of
near zero mass, serving only to keep the armature from falling out of the shaker.
4. There is no fixturing to decouple the standard accelerometers from the armatures. The standard accelerometer is
built into the armatures and their resonance frequencies are nominally 80 kHz.
