Modal 1000 Exciter System

Modal 1000 ExciterThe Modal 1000 exciter system offers 900 Lb (4,000 N) of force with a 1.8″ (45mm) peak-to-peak stroke and includes all of the unique features that make MB Dynamics’ exciters the best around the world. With optional cooling unit and force sensor, the Modal 1000 can be customized to suit a number of different applications.

There’s more to using and buying modal exciters than meets the eye. Misjudging modal testing applications can be fraught with unforeseen hazards that contaminate data and miscalculating hidden costs can be risky. Avoid pitfalls and trust MB Dynamics, the leading world-wide supplier of modal exciters and excitation testing applications.
