The Quanser Active Mass Damper (AMD) is a bench-scale model of a tall building equipped with an active damper. It is ideal for studying control techniques used to actively suppress vibrations in tall buildings. The AMD experiment is available in three different configuartions: 1-floor AMD, 2-floor AMD with a single active cart, and 2-floor AMD with two active carts.
The Hexapod is a compact six degrees of freedom parallel robotic motion platform capable of moving up to 100 kg at high acceleration. Unlike most commercially available Stewart platforms, the Hexapod is driven by superior electrical motors which make it precise, responsive and low-maintenance.
The Quanser Shake Table I-40 is an open architecture bench-scale single-axis earthquake simulator ideal for teaching structural dynamics and control, earthquake engineering and other control topics related to civil engineering. With pre-loaded acceleration profiles of real earthquakes, such as Northridge and El-Centro, students can study their effects on buildings, bridges and various materials.
Combining two single-axis Shake Table II units is a cost-effective method to build a dual-axis motion platform. With this Shake Table II XY configuration, you can explore more advanced dynamics analysis topics, and perform research relating to earthquake loss reduction.
The Quanser Shake Table II is a mid-size open-architecture single-axis earthquake simulator ideal for teaching structural dynamics, vibration isolation, feedback control, and other control topics related to earthquake, aerospace and mechanical engineering. Users can generate sinusoidal, chip as well as pre-loaded acceleration profiles of real earthquakes, such as Northridge, Kobe and El-Centro, to study their effects on buildings, bridges and various materials. Additionally, earthquake profiles can be downloaded from the PEER Ground Motion Database, scaled using the supplied software, and replayed on the Shake Table II.
The Quanser Shake Table III XY is a dual-axis, high-powered planar earthquake simulator ideal for more advanced dynamics analysis and research relating to earthquake loss reduction. It is capable of moving high loads of up to 100 kg at high accelerations and velocities.
