The shake Table (ST-ER-1) helps successfully integrate Structural Dynamics & Control, Earthquake Engineering and related fields into Civil Engineering curriculum and research. This portable, bench-scale table is powered by a Ironless linear motor.
The load is directly connected to the motor. Therefore, there is no backlash or elasticity from the moving elements. Thus, the dynamic behavior of the servo control is improved and higher levels of accuracy are achieved.
The ST-ER-1 is instrumented with an optical encoder and accelerometer. Each ST-ER- 1 moves along a single axis, however, two tables can be coupled for dual axis, x - y operation.
