HYDRA Multi-axis Shaker
The HYDRA Multi-axis Shaker is the most powerful of all shakers in the ESTEC Test Centre. HYDRA is an hydraulic shaker with a 6 degree of freedom control system that allows testing all axes with one setup and allows excitation in multiple directions and frequencies. The maximum payload tested is 23 tons.
The HYDRA shaker can be used for sine, transient or random testing in the frequency range from 0.1Hz to 100Hz with acceleration levels from 0.02 g up to 5 g. A state-of-the-art control system is available with up to 60 available channels for vibration input control and automatic test article response limiting. More acceleration measurement channels can be recorded by a mobile data handling system with up to 512 measurement channels.
