Exciter Head

The Exciter Head, with its force and displacement transducers, generates and measures the force or torque to the structure being tested and provides feedback signals for control of the test variables.

Exciter heads are designed for maximum problem-solving flexibility in applications, fixtures and operation. Available in a broad range of force/ torque capabilities in linear, torsional, and inertial mass models, the exciter heads provide controlled static and dynamic force for a wide range of structural testing applications.

  • Miniature strain gauge load cell for both static & dynamic force feedback & output

  • Small size

  • Tandem mounted displacement kit

  • High frequency servovalve

  • Easy to fixture

  • Bronze impregnated TFE piston rings for low stiction

  • Long life rod seals

  • Precision ground piston rods

  • Low maintenance

Linear Exciter Head

The Modal Excitation Systems are the most popular of the Xcite product line because of its large force capacity and broad frequency range compared to its extremely compact size.

Torsional Exciter Head
