The AS10 accelerometer simulator is a multi-channel, electronic impulse generator capable
of simulating two-wire constant current accelerometers.
The AS10 is a low-power, stand-alone device, and does not require batteries. The internal impulse generator is powered by the constant current signal from the recording equipment. Once connected to a suitable instrument, the AS10 immediately activates, and begins generating a continuous train of exponentially decaying impulses.
Since the AS10 accelerometer simulator provides a consistent, repeatable signal over a maximum of three channels, it is ideal for troubleshooting or for use as a reference signal source. It can be used as a field test generator to verify a recorder and cabling is functional without needing a range of expensive accelerometers. It does away with the noisy and expensive shaker table, since the signal is generated electronically rather than mechanically.
