New Mechanical Impulse Pyroshock Simulator (MIPS) Setup Helps Customers

We’re constantly tinkering in the lab, always asking questions to provide you with the best-in-class test options. How do we improve accuracy? How do we reduce customer cost? How do we deliver test results more quickly? With the new Mechanical Impulse Pyroshock Simulator (MIPS), we found answers to these questions.The new setup is located in our Boxborough lab, which is one of NTS’s 28 labs in North America. With the new improvements, the setup makes it easier to meet high shock requirements in multiple axes at once, thus allowing for an acceptable test result in less time. Its clamped-clamped resonant beam design provides better efficiency, higher test levels, more accurate test results, and the ability to adjust in axis and cross-axis shock levels. Highlights of the new system include the following:

  • Resonant Beam (Clamped-Clamped) with T-1,000 Shaker Pattern
  • High Shock to 100,000 G SRS in Axis
  • Consistent Shock Pulses and Low Risk of Errant Shocks
  • Positive and Negative Shocks Near Identical Levels in Axis
  • Reduced test time by testing multiple axes at once.

Plus, the MIPS table is located in an area of the lab with hot and cold chambers for EUT temperature conditioning. If you need MIPS testing—or if you want to learn about all the new investments in—please contact us today.
