Active Systems

Active vibration control systems control vibration by electronically sensing the disturbance and taking an action to compensate for it. Most active vibration control systems are hybrid systems using active control for low frequencies and passive isolation for higher frequencies. They offer superior performance compared to passive systems by providing better low frequency isolation, without the high static deflections associated with passive devices, and improved settling times. Active actuators can be hydraulic, pneumatic, piezoelectric and other styles.
