  THE STANDARD IN ENVIRONMENTAL TESTING EXCELLENCE
Free Fall Shock.........
.
This test is conducted to assure that material can withstand the relatively infrequent, non-repetitive shocks or transient vibrations encountered in handling, transportation, and service environments. Shock tests are also used to measure an items fragility, so that packaging may be designed to protect it, if necessary, and to test the strength of devices that attach equipment to platforms that can crash. 
.

A variable duration shaped pulse device. Designed for high "G" shock test.
The "G" level and duration depend on impact material and sample weight.
Shock duration: Approximately 0.5 to 30 milliseconds
Shock range: 8 to 2,500 G's (with up to a 300 lb. payload)
