|IH series IEPE impact hammer features a rugged, force sensor that is integrated into the hammer’s striking surface.
The force sensor serves to provide a measurement of the amplitude and frequency content of the energy stimulus that is imparted to a test object. Accelerometers may be used in conjunction with the hammer to provide a measurement of the object’s structural response due to the hammer blow. A variety of tips supplied with each hammer permit the energy content of the force impulse to be tailored to suit the requirements of the item under test. Using multi-channel data acquisition and analysis software, the test engineer is able to ascertain a variety of mechanical properties leading to an understanding of an object’s structural behavioral characteristics. Items analyzed can include resonance detection, mode shapes, transfer characteristics, and structural health – such as crack and fatigue detection. IH series impact hammers be applied for Structure Health Testing, Resonance Determination, Modal Analysis etc.
