XCITE 1300 Laboratory Series

1300 Laboratory SeriesThe Xcite 1300 Laboratory Series is used in applications where longer stroke and extremely high forces are required to determine the modal characteristics of flexible structures such as truck suspensions and engine mounts, transit vehicles, locomotives, drag lines, backhoes, cranes and large electrical generating apparatus. The 15 GPM Hydraulic Power Supply of these systems allows frequency responses in the 100 Hz to 500 Hz range while the larger exciters generate forces to 20,000 lbf.

This series is used primarily in heavy industrial applications such as nuclear power generating plants and foundries for foundation and bearing pedestal dynamic testing. The 1300 Series has also been used in shipboard applications for testing of major propulsion equipment foundations, mounts, drive shafts and propellers.

Xcite 1300-1 Laboratory System

This system consists of the 1306-15-T/C Exciter Head, 1302C Hydraulic Power Supply and the 1304-MOD4 Master Controller.

Xcite 1300-2 Laboratory System

This system consists of the 1352-15-T/C Exciter Head, 1302C Hydraulic Power Supply and the 1304-MOD4 Master Controller.

Xcite 1300-3 Laboratory System

This system consists of the 1310-15-T/C Exciter Head, 1302C Hydraulic Power Supply and the 1304-MOD4 Master Controller.

Note: The above force curve is for the Xcite 1310 Head used in Tension/Compression mode with ZERO STATIC FORCE and the load cell rigidly connected to the structure for “PUSH/PULL” operation. In Compression mode only with 5000 lbs of Static Force the curves are derated to a maximum of 4000-5000 lbs Peak Dynamic. (Depending on the structure stiffness of the test article).
