Crash test and automotive
Every vehicle type, as well as individual components, must be tested for safety and reliability in various crash tests. Dynamic sensors play a key role in these tests.
Based on their results and the detailed information provided by the tests, the protection of the vehicle occupants can be analyzed. Here it is essential that the measurement systems used provide accurate values.
SPEKTRA provides a broad portfolio for all crash test equipment suppliers and operators. From complete systems to data connections and special accessory components.
With the crash test and automotive industry firmly in our sights, we can respond to individual requirements.
CS Q-LEAP™ - the complete calibration solution
Cutting-edge technology – flexible, efficient and future-oriented
The CS Q-LEAP™ calibration system from SPEKTRA sets new benchmarks. By combining our HERO™ controller and various exciters, we can cover an enormously wide frequency range from 8 mHz to 350 kHz. A system can thereby be configured for different measurands such as acceleration, vibration, shock, acoustic measurands, rotation rate, pressure and others. It can process both analog and purely digital sensors and is fully traceable to PTB.
The new service concept significantly minimizes downtime, and modules can be calibrated individually and configure themselves independently following replacement. In addition, our CS Q-LEAP™ software and eCal™ are future-proof and already offer many advantages, such as a test item database and simple, flexible data exchange for, e.g., printable PDF calibration certificates or digital calibration certificates.
Modular for any application
Wide range of calibration exciters and components
SPEKTRA develops and manufactures a wide range of calibration exciters for vibration, shock, pressure and rotation rate which can be used in complete systems as well as in test systems for small devices under test.
We also offer components such as the anechoic chamber for secondary calibration of measuring microphones, sound level meters and other sound sensors.
Check and calibrate sensors directly on site
Sensors in crash test equipment must be checked regularly for accuracy and reliability. With our mobile CV-10 calibration system, traceable to the PTB, this can be done quickly and easily directly on site. With a frequency range of 5 Hz...10 kHz, an extension module for PR sensors and a special adapter for proximity sensors, the CV-10 is the perfect tool for the crash test and automotive industry.
Our CV-01 vibration calibrator allows, among other things, the calibration of vibration measuring devices on site, the inspection of sensor cabling or the troubleshooting of vibration measurement chains on machines.
