Mobility redefined

TESTelligence on the road with the CV-10

On-site testing and calibration made easy!

When a test setup has to be inspected quickly on site, a portable calibration solution is often the only option. The CV-10 combines all advantages of mobile calibration with the trusted, advanced technology and user-friendliness of SPEKTRA laboratory devices.

We have developed the CV-10 mobile calibration system to considerably simplify on-site testing and calibration of accelerometers, proximity probes, velocity sensors and much more. The CV-10 has many applications particularly in the automotive industry. When used in conjunction with the CV-10 PR , piezoresistive transducers can also be tested and calibrated quickly and reliably. Additionally, the CV-10 can be used to calibrate vibration measuring instruments and complete measurement chains.

A wide range of applications in a lightweight case

The CV-10 mobile calibration system can tackle a wide range of measurement tasks.

  • Its continuous frequency sweep enables users to check the entire frequency bandwidth of the device under test.
  • The manual mode lets you check the functionality of a sensor at an individually selected frequency and amplitude.
  • In profile mode, the unit automatically runs through and processes a series of measurement points at preset frequencies and amplitudes. You can store and edit a set of calibration profiles in the system for this purpose.

The high-performance vibration exciter of the CV-10 delivers frequencies from 5 Hz to 10 kHz.

Thanks to its compact size, the CV-10 is easy to transport and can be easily carried to measurement assignments in various laboratories or in the field. And with a battery that allows up to 10 hours of operation, there is no need for a power connection at the test site. This is another convenient feature of the mobile calibration system: the possibility of testing and calibrating acceleration sensors and test setups in any location means that downtimes are significantly reduced.

Take hold of the future of calibration – in a compact rugged case

In addition to its high-performance vibration exciter and multiple integrated signal conditioners, the CV-10 offers an extension port for further options. The signal conditioner already available for piezoresistive accelerometers will be followed by a programmable power supply unit for other sensor types. In addition to the simple data exchange currently offered via USB storage media, a network connection will be added in the future, using the existing Ethernet interface and/or an optional WiFi adapter.

SPEKTRA stands for precision and proven quality. For this reason, all CV-10 units are calibrated in our DAkkS-accredited laboratory before shipment and are thus traceable to national institutions such as the German Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
