The Hardware

We pride ourselves in a quality product and outstanding customer support. You can rest easy that both are taken care of with your VR9500 Revolution.
  1. Front End Signal Processing Box. The Revolution uses a high speed RISC processor, which is capable of quickly processing large amounts of data.
  2. High Sample Rates. Runs vibration tests efficiently at both low and high sample rates, and with up to 26,000 lines of resolution for random testing.
  3. PC Congfiguration. Does NOT require any board in the PC. All the critical calculations are done directly in the hardware box, with the results communicated via Ethernet connection to the PC.
  4. Low PC Requirements. The PC is only used for user interface and data storage so the PC requirements are quite low.
  5. High Analog Channel Count. From 1 to 128 input channels (in blocks of 4 channel controllers)
  6. Control Loops. Up to 4 simultaneous control loops.
  7. Ethernet connection:
  8. Eliminates the grounding issues created by a USB connection or PCI cards.
  9. Ethernet is great for getting rid of 50/60 Hz noise problems.
  10. TEDS Interface - the software reads the calibration information right off of the accelerometers (if available).
  11. Power requirements: 90-250VAC, 50/60Hz, 1.2/0.7A
