DSC02762On September 9-10, 2014 Radiy conducted Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) of the new Vibration-Measuring System (VMS-1) to be used for calibration and verification of sensors in the seismic protection systems of nuclear power plants.  

Below is a list of notable and newly introduced features:
- extended lower limit of the oscillation frequency of the oscillations with high-quality sinusoidal mechanical motion of the vibration-scheduling platform;
- introduced nonlinear distortion measurement of the sensor model and the device under test;
- introduced measuring of the peak value of the oscillation of the first harmonic amplitude in the signal spectrum;
- firstly introduced is the opportunity to fix the device under test below the level of the vibration-scheduling platform for testing of vertically fixed products;
- the excess of the dimensions of the device under test in the longitudinal and transversal axes which are imparting vibrations is acceptable;
- load capacity is increased, the weight of the test item can be up to 10 kg inclusive;
- automation of calibration (verification) process of the test items according to predefined functions.

The Factory Acceptance Committee included representatives from Rivne NPP, Khmelnytska NPP, Zaporizhzhya NPP and South-Ukraine NPP. The committee commended the performance of VMS-1 during the FAT and confirmed compliance with Ukrainian National regulations.
