Arizona Based Test Laboratory Adds New ETS I1045 Shaker System
National Technical Systems, Inc. (“NTS”), a qualification testing, inspection, and certification solutions supplier in North America, has added a new ETS I1045 shaker system with a 480kVA amplifier. The shaker is available at its laboratory in Tempe, Arizona.
With the expanded capability, NTS can meet the increasingly stringent requirements more quickly while testing to various standards, including MIL-STD-810, RTCA/DO-160, ISTA 2A and 3A, UN38.3, and RTCA/DO-293.
To ensure customers maintain flexible scheduling options with the surge in demand, the Tempe facility plans to add top echelon technicians and engineers to operate the ETS I1045 exclusively. “We’re excited to expand our offering to remain the region’s most comprehensive test facility,” said Connor Smith, General Manager of NTS Tempe. “With the investment, our lab is the only one-stop-shop for advanced dynamics, environmental, and EMI/EMC testing in the State of Arizona.”
With a three-inch peak-to-peak displacement and velocities up to 180 inches per second, this system will significantly increase high-level shock and SRS testing capabilities to the Tempe lab. In addition, the new shaker exerts 24,000 force-pounds with a two-inch peak-to-peak of continuous displacement. It can also produce 220 Gs in sine vibration and 180 G in random vibration. “We’re laser-focused on accelerating time-to-market with the latest technology, fastest turnarounds, and best engineers,” continued Smith.
