The vibration test facility located in Building 1250 is equipped to perform vibration testing of aerospace hardware from components through small spacecraft.   It consists of a shaker control system, signal conditioning systems, data acquisition systems and three electrodynamic shakers.   The shaker control system uses the M+P VibRunner software and includes 32 channels of signal conditioning for control and general data acquisition.   An additional 186 channels of data can be obtained with auxiliary, on-hand, signal conditioning and acquisition equipment.   The M+P VibRunner software includes the following capabilities: sine sweep, sine dwell, random, sine-on-random, classical shock, and shock response spectrum (SRS).   The facility is capable of preparing for two separate tests in parallel.
