  • Description

    Castle GA606 Vibration Calibrator

    The Castle GA606 Vibration Calibrator is a portable 1g handheld shaker that allows the user to perform speedy checks on accelerometers and other vibration recording systems/devices. The calibrator produces user-adjustable calibration vibration for either RMS average or peak for accelerometers weighing anything up to 210g.

    Calibration signal operates at 159.2Hz and the user can choose between a 1g RMS or 1g peak acceleration output. Depending on the weight of the accelerometer under calibration, the Castle GA606 can perform between 80 and 1600 cycles and there is manual override of the 1min 45s automatic shut-off point if required. Mechanical stops protect the internal suspension from overloads.

    The Castle GA606 complies with CE standards and has a long battery life of 2 to 10 hours depending on load mass. It has a female thread for mounting and can also be adapted to run from an AC supply.
