Our heart beats for intelligent test solutions. To a high frequency range. To the rhythm of time.

SPEKTRA Schwingungstechnik und Akustik GmbH Dresden, Germany was founded in 1994 and has established itself as a renowned manufacturer of components and systems for the testing and calibration of sensors. The products of the family business are used worldwide for the reliable measurement of dynamic physical quantities such as vibration, acceleration, sound pressure or alternating charge.

The product group Calibration Solutions includes various calibration systems, individual exciters and comprehensive services. With the CS calibration systems, SPEKTRA provides a means to cope with all requirements of traceable calibration and efficient laboratory operation in conformance with all applicable standards. Our complete turnkey calibration systems have a modular structure to allow for the calibration of several measurands (acoustics, acceleration, shock, dynamic force, dynamic pressure…) by means of one system and hardware interfaces for the calibration of sensors with digital interfaces (DTI, I2C, CAN...). On top of that, we provide mobile calibration solutions. Our systems are available for primary as well as secondary calibration.

From individual laboratory-scale sensor technology to high­frequency mass production, our Device Testing product group offers TESTelligent solutions for testing and characterization of MEMS sensors. We are very familiar with laboratory environments. Our S-TEST Lab product line enables the system testing of a wide range of sensor types. Because SPEKTRA also thinks big, we have developed our S-TEST Fab equipment for parallel final testing of sensors in mass production. These products enable easy scaling at optimal cost per sensor.

SPEKTRA also includes the APS trademark under which we manufacture and sell long-stroke vibration exciters. APS has been a well-known supplier of modal exciters for over 45 years. In 2008 SPEKTRA and APS joined forces, and together have built a new generation of even stronger vibration exciters and Structural Testing solutions for modal test excitation, low frequency calibration as well as component test. 

TESTelligence is our creed. Based on our extensive product portfolio in the measurement and testing technology, we can offer complex Engineering Solutions that are customized to meet individual requirements. Benefit from the technical know-how of the SPEKTRA engineers and contact us with any specific challenge.

Furthermore we can offer a wide range of calibration services in our accredited laboratory. Benefit from qualified advice on the appropriate service and conformity statement, short lead times and internationally recognized calibration certificates (DAkkS, ILAC-MRA). And all this at a level of measurement uncertainty that can normally only be guaranteed by topmost national metrology laboratories.

The fast pace of technical development and the ever-growing complexity of customer demands is our biggest motivation. SPEKTRA is often pioneer when it comes to the development, manufacturing or distribution of measuring and testing systems as well as calibration equipment. Our own range of products and services also benefit from the solutions developed on customer projects.
