The Motion test module requires an accelerometer signal from one of the supported Sensors to acquire the vibration from Shakers/Screens. The Motion Test provides a simple way for field technicians to completely characterize Shaker/Screen behavior including G force value, displacement, stroke length motion type and apect ratio. After test is complete users can create PDF reports which can be emailed or stored.


This module is compatible with the following sensors:

  1. Sensoteq® Chi

Main Menu

  1. The Main Menu shows three buttons: 1)Shaker/Screen Motion Test, 2)Settings, and 3)Report Manager. On the tp right corner the user can access the About page by clicking on the "i" button.

  5. Once the test is completed the user can press on the top right corner on the report button, which will generate a pdf report, showing the Machine Info, Motion Type, Stroke Length & Horizontal-Vertical Displacement and Attack Angle. The picture will be attached to the second page. More info on the report can be viewed in: Report.
  6. Pdf report can be saved or sent by clicking on the SHARE button, see more info in: Report.


  1. From the Main Menu Screen, click the SETTINGS button to open the settings view. Here the user can change the units between Metric/Imperial, Toggle between Filtered Peak or Overall Amplitude and activate/deactivate the low pass filter.

  1. Clicking on the Report button will open a new view with the pdf report. The report view contains several options: 1:Back, 2:Config, and 3:Share.
  2. The Config button will open a new screen where the user can add/change the Report Title, the Machine ID or the Picture. Here the user can also add notes or comments to the report.
