Compare our solutions for full mass property measurements

The following table compares the four Resonic product lines which are capable of full mass property measurements. Resonic T is excluded because it can measure only a single MOI.

Suitable applications

Resonic GResonic FResonic SResonic K
ExamplesLarge satellites, helicoptersCars, motorcycles,
truck cabins, engines,
rockets, drones, ship models,
boats, ultra-heavy vehicles
Engines, gear units, car wheelsSatellite components,
helmets, crashtest dummy parts,
optics modules, nano satellites, small drones,
golf clubs, tennis rackets, power tools
Suitable for soft test objects(1)×
Suitable for very tall objects with large enclosed air volumes
Suitable for long, narrow objects(2)(3)
Suitable for tiny objects×××
Suitable for > 20 kg objects  that cannot be easily lifted by hand
Cost-effective for very large objects (> 20 tons)×
Measurement range between smallest and largest MOIs500x1000x(4)50x(5)1000x(6)

(1)   Good for soft objects with low COGs, poor for soft objects with very high COGs
(2)   Even if, for example, Ixx is 100x smaller than Iyy and Izz, percentage errors are still similar for all three MOIs.
(3)   Only if standing upright (similar to conventional 45° positioning adapters)
(4)   For example, a 2000F system can measure a full passenger car and the engine of the same car with the same percentage accuracy
(5)   Limited by work space. Range can be extended by additional smaller measurement platform.
(6)   Requires interchangeable carrier platforms in different sizes. Available as options.

 

Test facility

Resonic GResonic FResonic SResonic K
No infrastructure needed beyond rigid floor, crane and power outlet(1)(2)
Device can be quickly moved into storage between measurements

(1)   For some vehicle adapters, it is possible to drive onto the machine and work without a crane.
(2)   No crane is needed because the test objects are light enough to be lifted by hand.

 

Time requirements

Time per measurement(1)90 min30 min20 min40 min
Time with operator interaction5 min5 min(2) or 30 min(3)20 min40 min
Machine setup time when taken out of storage< 2 h< 1.5 h< 1.5 h< 30 min
Time for moving the system into storage< 1.5 h< 1 h< 1 h< 30 min
Calibration1 h after each measurement (can run without supervision)2-4 d at Resonic facility (or, optionally, as a service on site)1-2 d at Resonic facility (only the detachable springs are calibrated)5-10 min, ideally before each measurement

(1)   Not including the installation of the test object on the platform and not including 3D measurements for coordinate transformation. Please note also that the time requirement is about the same for an additional empty measurement which is often needed for subtracting the fixture inertia.

(3)   In non-automated version
