Paper Abstract

This paper presents an automated accelerometer calibration system based on an homodyne quadrature interferometer. The vibration exciter and the interferometer are mounted on separate seismic blocks. To minimize the influence of low frequency noise due to the relative movement between the blocks, a high-pass recursive moving average filtering algorithm is implemented. The vibration and the measuring system are fully synchronized. A flexible setting of the acquisition rate is used to improve the computational efficiency and allow the calibration at any desired frequency within the frequency range from 10 Hz to 10 kHz. The theory of the method is briefly described. The experimental set-up is presented and some results are given.
