AC Motor Wiring
Description: We created this equipment to give students hands-on experience regarding AC motor wiring to control the motor, such as start-stop, reverse rotation direction, wye-delta configuration (3-phase AC motor), etc.
Description: Camera for recording specimens during testing.
a. Sony AS200VR – White Action Camera, ½ .3” Exmor R CMOS Sensor, 8.8 MP, Memory Stick
b. SJ CAM SJ5000 + Full HD 1920 x 1080p, 16 Megapixel 1/2.33″ CMOS Sensor, 170 Degree HD Wide-angle Lens
Description: Shaft alignment is an absolute requirement before the machine is put in service. If the alignment process isn’t done properly, misalignment can cause increased vibration and loads. Therefore, students will get hands-on experience regarding the alignment process with the face and rim method.
Balancing of Rotating Equipment
Description: The laboratory-scale balancing equipment is built to demonstrate the 1-plane and 2-plane balancing process with phase angle or three trial mass method.
Bump Test and Resonance
Description: Students perform a bump test to find the natural frequency of the system. Afterward, the system is excited by the unbalance force, and students observe the system’s mode shape when resonance occurs.
DC Power Supply and DC Motor
This apparatus is designed for practical learning. It helps the student to have a better understanding of the DC power supply working principle and also DC motor characteristics.
Displacement Measurement Device
Description: Used to measure the displacement that occurs in the specimen when subjected to loading.

Description: We have four hydraulic cylinders that can work simultaneously, and each cylinder is capable of generating sinusoidal motion up to 60 Hz with constant stroke.
Description: Earthquake simulations are generally performed to examine the effects of earthquakes on man-made engineered structures. Studying a structure’s response to an earthquake is achieved by putting the structure model on a shake-table that simulates the seismic loading.
Free and Forced Vibration
Description: This apparatus can be presented in two configurations. In the first configuration, free vibration, students learn how to determine spring stiffness and damping coefficient experimentally. Meanwhile, in the second configuration, forced vibration, the system is excited by the unbalance force, and students observe the system’s response.
Introduction to Control Systems
Description: Students learn P, PI, and PID controller characteristics to control the DC motor and the heater temperature.
ISO Standard Vibration Test
Description: Students conduct vibration measurement and compare the vibration result with the vibration ISO standard. On the other hand, students learn how to identify the bearing failure based on vibration spectrum analysis.
