When your Advanced applications need the most powerful controller available, the Jaguar™ is the ultimate in controller solutions.

Key features

  • From 8 to 588 input channels
    Our unique and powerful hardware architecture allows expansion to hundreds of channels without sacrificing signal processing performance.
  • Up to 98 control channels
    With the powerful design of Jaguar™, you have the option to configure up to 98 control channels at the same time. All the channels can be used as control channels.
  • Accuracy
    The Jaguar™ is the only system in the world capable of changing the input ranges during a test with no adverse effects on the data. This occurs in our Sine or Random applications ensuring optimal use of the available dynamic range.

  • MIMO Capabilities
    MIMO (Multiple Input – Multiple Output) The Jaguar™ has the power to recreate multiple degree of freedom environments in your test laboratory. Applications as diverse as vibrating a complex configuration of electronics 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 the Jaguar™ MIMO application. The Jaguar™, well known throughout the world for advanced vibration controller testing, also has a strong application success for acoustic control technology. The Jaguar™ is unmatched in its ability to control and analyze advanced test configurations when performing Direct Field Acoustic Testing (DFAT) for Satellites. Contact local Spectral Dynamics sales representative to find out more about our DFAT capabilities and experience as well as see the detail below MIMO Random acoustic Module.
  • Spectral Dynamics Adaptive Control Algorithm
    The JaguarTM uses an advanced Adaptive Control method, which is patented and declared to be a fundamental and revolutionary control method by the European and US patent offices. The adaptive control updates the system model as part of the multi-dimensional optimization used by the underlying optimal control method. These integrated control methods permit to reach the best control performance on the market for any test conditions. Our technology protects your test article and the test system while allowing for the ultimate in response delivering you the confidence in test results you desire.

Jaguar Features

 For over fifty years the PIND Products Group of SPECTRAL DYNAMICS, INC. has given users simple, reliable, and inexpensive tools to perform Particle Impact Noise Detection (PIND) testing to increase the reliability of electronic components.
 Our non-destructive high frequency acoustic test monitors for loose particles moving inside high reliability internal cavity electronic components such as relays, transistors, hybrids, integrated circuits, and switches – particles that have the potential of causing short circuits and serious malfunctions in system operations.
 A shaker is used as a linear motor to excite loose particles to move within the component cavity. Upon striking the lid of the cavity, some of the particle kinetic energy (½mv2) is converted to a wide band acoustic pressure wave that travels through the lid, through the attachment media, and onto the top surface of the Impact Detection Sensor. The acoustic wave is detected by the sensitive ultrasonic crystal or crystals within the sensor and converted to an electrical signal. To keep the particle moving, a very accurate shock, generated internal to the shaker and controlled by the computer, monitoring the motion of the sensor, is employed.

Spectral Dynamics, Inc. is a leading worldwide supplier of systems and software for vibration testing, structural dynamics, and acoustic analysis. Spectral Dynamics' products are used for design verification, product testing and process improvement by manufacturers of all types of electronic and mechanical products.
