TDG SHAKETABLE is a mobile size uni-axial shaketable. It can simulate
earthquakes using real records as well as operate waveforms such as sine,
triangle etc. and any user defined acceleration or displacement profile. The
system is fully controlled via a computer software. It's commonly used in Civil
Engieering departments. It can also be used for structural mechanics,
earthquake, soil and geological engineering tests and calibrating accelerometers
and seismic instruments.
The product has become the market choice in the last decade, due to its price advantage, flexibility and practical use. It's actively being used in many university laboratories in Turkey and several countries all over the world, such as USA, Spain, Netherlands, India, Taiwan, Thailand.

Answer: A YouTube video is available HERE.
Answer: For correct functionality, 220 Volt is needed. We recommend using a portable transformer with a minimum of 500 Watt.
Answer: We recommend setting the network configuration as follows:
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway is not important but it can be set to 192.168.2.1
Answer: Assuming all the software is installed properly,
if the system does not move even though you click the "Torque" button and
Click "Go to zero" in the software, a setting may need to be changed in a
file inside the installation folder. Please refer to Section 3.2 of User
Manual to change "dioType" in "project.ini" file. The alternatives are
"Sinking" and "Sourcing"
After changing this parameter and starting the software again, make sure that the small LCD display on the table read "RUN" after you hit "Torque" button on the software. When the torque is closed, the screen will read "RDY" and it will turn into "RUN" when the torque is enabled. When it reads "RUN" system will respond to motion commands through the software.
