A top quality vibration generator for producing mechanical vibrations when used with a signal generator. For experiments in producing standing waves on a string or elastic cord to demonstrate resonant frequency, harmonics, nodes and anti-nodes. Also for use in experiments with resonance in springs, Chladni plates etc.
The design includes two 4mm safety sockets for signal input and the unit is fuse-protected and lockable, to protect moving parts while changing accessories. A string holder, mounting post, and a spare fuse are included with the apparatus.
Frequency of vibration ranges from 0.1 Hz to 5 kHz, with amplitudes up to 7mm at the low end of the frequency range.
The Vibration Generator may be used sitting upright, on its side, or inclined e.g. on an OHP.
Maximum input: 6 V / 1 A
Impedance: 8 Ohms
Dimensions: 100mm diameter x 120 mm
Weight: 1.2 kg
