JAGUAR Shaker Control and Analysis System


Powerful workstation-based system for large scale Shaker Control, signal analysis, and MIMO Shaker Control

Shaker Control

Jaguar provides a full suite of closed loop Shaker Control applications with up to 98 control channels and over 500 response channels.  Patented adaptive control techniques provide the highest levels of accuracy and safety.

Signal Analysis

Jaguar’s multiple Acquisition Control Peripheral (ACP) architecture allows expansion to hundreds of channels without sacrificing signal processing performance.  Dedicated throughput disks for each ACP provide time streaming to disk at up to the maximum sample rate. Comprehensive signal analysis capabilities include FFT Analysis, Transient Analysis (SRS), Swept Sine Analysis (with true digital tracking filters) and Modal Analysis using MTS I-DEAS™.

Multi-Input Multi-Output (MIMO) Shaker Control

With hardware optimized for multiple degree of freedom control testing, Jaguar provides MIMO control capabilities not found in any other system.

  • True Gaussian random control using Spectral Dynamics patented adaptive control
  • True swept sine control with digital tracking filters.
  • Transient control for shock synthesis and seismic testing.
  • Waveform replication control with real-time frame by frame H(f) updating

Features and Applications


Mixed-Mode

Spectral Dynamics’ Mixed-Mode is a true closed-loop controlled test in every respect. Tones, bands and the broadband base are each controlled to the specified shapes and tolerances.

24 Drive Multi-Shaker Control

Spectral Dynamics Inc. has been delivering multi shaker control (MIMO) systems since about 2001. Over this time the requirements for additional output Drives has grown steadily as 3 DOF and 6 DOF testing gains in popularity. We now offer up to 16 controlled Drives in a single standard system.

Random Control

Random vibration testing is intended to verify that the device under test will withstand the vibration and perform to specifications afterward. Test accuracy is expected. Accuracy of signal generation, signal measurement, filtering and control algorithms are required to ensure accurate test results.

Sine Control / Analysis

Swept Sine testing is done to determine resonant frequencies and damping factors, overall peak G response of the structure to stimulus, or simply to adhere to a test requirement. Whatever your needs are, JAGUAR establishes new levels of performance.

Multiple Input - Multiple Output

JAGUAR recreates multiple degree of freedom environments in the laboratory. Applications as diverse as shaking a portable computer in 3 axes simultaneously,driving a very heavy structure in one axis while sharing the load over many shakers,or even recreating 6 DOF movement at each of the four wheels of an automobile may now be accomplished with JAGUAR MIMO applications.

Shock Synthesis

Create arbitrary waveforms to match your SRS and your table capability; provides the ability to enter a Shock Response Spectrum (SRS) into a table. JAGUAR then permits the generation of an unlimited number of waveforms that will result in the reference SRS being optimized and the resulting time domain waveform compensated to permit replication on a shaker table. JAGUAR Shock Synthesis permits the operator to easily create new waveform tables. Simply press a button and a new table will be created with automatic convergence to the specified percentage of error defined by the operator.
