MB Millenium MIMO Vibration Controller

The MB Millenium™ MIMO controller replicates actual-use vibration conditions by simultaneously controlling up to six actuators connected to one test item running independent vibration profiles, synchronized or unsynchronized. MIMO shaker control applications include Time History Replication and Random vibration (PSD control), as well as single-shaker and multi-shaker Sine.

Practical MB hardware features and functions from 40+ years of applications know-how honed by doing vibration and dynamics tests augment commercially-available, continuously-innovated A/D and D/A hardware. The MB Millenium™ MIMO controls electrodynamic, electromagnetic, pneumatic, and hydraulic actuators as
well as linear and rotary motion control test systems. Profiles are acceleration, velocity, displacement, force, motion – and mixed profiles to simulate the end-use environment. A test item’s “End-Use” vibration environment imposes multiple load inputs from multiple directions. A realistic test lab simulation should do the same. MB’s Millenium MIMO makes it reliable and affordable.

Key Differentiators:

  • "Millenium Fusion" Control Laws
    • Fusion of classic electro-dynamic (Fourier) & Servo-motor control (PID)
    • Superior control of chaotic payloads (IP´s, Seats)
    • Much faster convergence, saves test time
  • Enhanced Control Accuracy - Errors typically under 5%, often as low as 2%
  • Coordinate Transforms
    • Superior control of multi-axis shaker systems
    • Uses natural coordinates (Vertical & Roll; 6 DOF)
    • Allows direct control of certain high-Q test article resonances
  • Skewness, Kurtosis and Crest Factor control
