Inductive Centring System (ICS) - Inspired by accuracy

Brüel & Kjær’s non-optical and non-contact armature positioning sensor for the most precise and accurate tests.

How many of us own a digital camera? If you are not sure, just look at your smartphone. As a matter of fact, the world has become increasingly digital. Brüel & Kjær, with its technology driven focus, wants to lead this change in the market with its new Inductive Centring System (ICS). 

The Inductive Centring System (ICS), a new sensor, patented by Brüel & Kjær, adjusts the armature position without the use of any optical targets. Thanks to its non-contact and non-optical design, the ICS is unaffected by environmental conditions. As a purely digital sensor, the ICS makes the need for regular calibration and sensor maintenance obsolete. But this is just the beginning: the ICS is maintenance free, giving you peace of mind when running your tests. Customers will not need to wait for routine in-field service or calibration of the sensor as no technical actions are needed. 
 
Previously only available for the LDS V8900 shaker, the ICS is now designed to work with the comprehensive LDS V8 shaker systems. Customers, both existing and new, will be able to benefit from an ICS upgrade: 
  • Existing shakers: Our best in class Global Field Service team can easily install the ICS on existing systems as part of an annual service
  • New shakers: We directly supply ICS as standard on your new V8 and V8900 shaker systems
