Vibration control system composed of single output generation and multiple channels hardware associated with powerful software.
The LynxTM is a powerful, flexible and affordable vibration test control system designed to meet a wide range of environmental test requirements. It combines simplicity of operation required for production screening with the power and versatility required for R&D prototype testing.
The LynxTM is no ordinary controller when it comes to vibration testing. To meet your most stringent test requirements, the system incorporates our patented Adaptive Digital vibration control technology. Our Adaptive Technology is the advanced technology every vibration controller should have. Our leading-edge algorithms calculate complex closed loop control solutions in milliseconds in a unique iterative process. This allows your test article and the system to be controlled during the test in the ultimate fashion. Our technology protects your test article and the test system while allowing for the ultimate in response delivering you the confidence in test results you desire.
- 4 Input channels expandable to 16
Each module is composed with a drive channels and 4 inputs. Synchronization of modules allows to increase the measurement channels number to fit your application.
- Multi-channel control capability
Each input channel can be declared as control channel. If several inputs are selected, the user can easily define the strategy for a multi-channel control of the test.
- Advanced graphics & reports
Our team developed a powerful graphic interface to monitor your testing and visualize data in a customizable and flexible manner. It allows to configure your display and export your results directly to Word® or Excel®.
- Data storage options
You entirely define the storage of the test. The LynxTM will accordingly record the time stream and/or the analysis, to meet your customized parameters.
- Automation features
Need to Sequence several random profiles during an extended test? Linking our different control software modules (Random, Sine or others) can automate your testing with LynxTM.
The LynxTM has integrated several internal systems checks to prevent damage to your system prior to starting a test sequence. This feature, along with our user control limits, provide for the ultimate in safety and protection of your equipment.
- System on Windows 10 – USB3 connection to host
Spectral Dynamics integrates the latest technology in its products. The Lynx™ is Windows 10 based and our hardware to PC communication is the latest in USB technology -USB3.

LynxTM Software Modules and Test applications:
Spectral Dynamics software modules always provide you with the best in control technology. Our LynxTM Sine Module incorporates a true analog-quality sine sweep with a double precision integrated phase algorithm in order to ensure the lowest signal distortion possible. Our easy-to-use flexible user interface, will allow you to configure your control parameters: manual or automatic test, control with the fundamental signal (tracking filter) or with the RMS of the broadband, control strategy. Other Sine based software modules; Stepped Sine and Search& Dwell can be easily incorporated into your testing control suite with your original system configuration or added later to your system as your testing needs to expand down the road.
Spectral Dynamics developed a control algorithm with separate controls loops dedicated to controlling the shape of the drive spectrum and overall RMS level. This optimizes the random control signal while providing both control speed and stability during your test. This “forward looking” technology allows the LynxTM to adjust the control speed in real time to the next measure of error that is about to occur. This control algorithm is one feature of our Adaptive Technology which ensures the control and repeatability you demand when testing to higher tolerance random control spectra while exciting your test product to give you the test confidence you need.
The LynxTM Shock Module solution generates different types of shock pulses to simulate the test item experiences in its real environment. As an expert in the field, Spectral Dynamics developed algorithms for shock testing with transfer function updating and coherence smoothing to accurately and quickly compensate for non-linearity or time varying changes which may occur with a dynamic load. The control strategy is easily defined by the user with pulse compensation, tolerances, number of control channels. SRS testing, automation of the shock test and repetitive pulse mode are available with our solution. The LynxTM stands alone in the industry as the “true tool” in realistic shock environment simulation.
Sine on Random Module
This application consists in combining pure sinusoidal signals with random signal waveforms. The highest quality random signals are generated and controlled via our advanced algorithm signal generation. The sinusoidal signals are then combined with the random waveforms and a high-quality spectrum is generated which can be then swept across your desired band of interest.
Random on Random Module
Random on Random simulates complex narrowband random on broadband random vibration environments. Narrow-bands may be swept or stationary. This vibration environment is typically seen in reciprocating equipment, repetitive impacts from tracked vehicles, and aircraft gunfire vibration.
Road simulation (Time replication) Module
Road Simulation application makes it possible to reproduce actual measured time history vibration data in the laboratory on your vibration system.
Signal Analyzer Module
The analyzer provides a comprehensive set of tools for data acquisition and signal analysis. Tests can be performed with or without output generation.
