SMALL SCALE SHAKETABLES

TDG-SHAKETABLE


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.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


Where can I get the EASYTEST shake table control sofware training?

Answer: A YouTube video is available HERE.


Can the shake table work with 110 Volt AC?

Answer: For correct functionality, 220 Volt is needed. We recommend using a portable transformer with a minimum of 500 Watt.


What should be the network setting of the computer to be connected to shake table?

Answer: We recommend setting the network configuration as follows:
IP: 192.168.2.5
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway is not important but it can be set to 192.168.2.1


Pressing "go to zero" does not center the mounting plate. How to fix it?

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.
