Recently, m+p international supplied a complete ground vibration test system to a reputable customer who will use the system for mobile aircraft testing.
The deal comprises the m+p SO Analyzer including the "Normal Mode Tuning" (NMT) software package, m+p VibRunner hardware with 56 input channels and 8 output channels as well as 4 modal shakers (200 N sine force). The customer will perform ground vibration testing on aircraft with a total of 8 modal shakers.

Normal Mode Tuning uses multi-point sine excitation at a strategic choice of the exciter locations with force control and tuning of the sinusoidal inputs. Read more.
Did you know that m+p international's acquisition systems can be used for all your strain measurement requirements?
For channel counts from 4 to 32 we support National Instruments 9237 USB and CompactDAQ Simultaneous Sampling Bridge Module.

¼, ½ and full-bridge conditioning are available with a range of excitation voltages. Hence, transducers, e.g. load cells, are supported as well as traditional foil strain gages. m+p international’s SO Analyzer automatically detects the bridge module(s) and adds the strains page to the setup wizard.
For higher channels counts m+p software products support the EX1629 Remote Strain Gage Measurement Unit from VTI Instruments. This provides conditioning in multiples of 48 channels.
And if you need a very rugged, standalone solution? New from m+p international for portable and standalone data acquisition of strain, temperature and vibration signals is the compact and rugged Ethernet-based cube I/O chassis together with our Coda software product family. The small 3-slot cube only measures 4” x 4.1” x 4”, its “big” brother provides slots for 6 I/O boards and is 5.8” high. Read more.
Sira Test and Certification, one of the UK's leading testing and certification organisations, is using m+p international’s VibPilot frontend and SO Analyzer dynamic measurement software to offer transducer shock calibration to BS ISO 16063-22 alongside the more traditional sine methods.
After assessing various products Sira selected the m+p solution. Factors which influenced this decision include:
- Easy-to-use flexible system software providing rapid configuration for each test set-up.
- Simple measurement operation giving improved test efficiency, lower costs and higher throughput.
- The system's dynamic range, measurement stability and repeatability (the calibration of the system has not changed over five years' usage).
- Comprehensive data export facilities, including custom templates and export to popular Microsoft Office applications.
- m+p international's continuing technical support to ensure a high quality system which met their stringent requirements.
