What is PolyLab?

PolyLab is a turnkey educational kit accessible to students as an experimental framework and covering concepts such as vibration testing and modal parameters (damping, natural frequency and modal deformities).

Several test stations will be shipped to your facility, each with test items, a portable VibroGo® vibrometer and a lab tutorial including relevant content and exciting experiences.

As it is simple to use and offers the ability to fully digital non-contact vibration measurement, students will enjoy working with the VibroGo®. It also includes analog data acquisition for visualization of transfer functions among many other features.

Included in the kit

  • Practice tests and demonstrative experiments in a detailed script to teach vibration testing and measure parameters such as resonant frequency, damping and deflection.
  • Choice for the acquisition and analysis of digital and analog data with Polytec VibSoft software.
  • The VibroGo portable laser Doppler vibrometer®, which measures the actual vibrational behavior, dynamics and acoustics of excited structures via a flexible, non-contact method, with a wide frequency band from DC to 100 kHz.
