APS Dynamics Inc. Shaker & Amplifiers

The Company began operations in Anaheim, California in 1971 as Acoustic Power Systems, Inc. Initially, the Company specialized in the development of high power acoustic generators. Subsequently, the company focused on the development of electro-dynamic shakers and power amplifiers. The Company's name was changed in 1989 to APS Dynamics, Inc.

SoundPLAN - essential

SoundPLAN-essential is a single document application including all the basic information for noise control modeling and planning. It calculates noise from roads, railways or industrial noise sources. The computation can include one or multiple noise sources.

Air Bearing Horizontal Shakers

The APS Dynamics series of air bearing long stroke vibration exciters provide excellent properties for low frequency excitation of accelerometers and other low frequency instruments and sensors. Some models have a horizontal air bearing table coupled to the driver unit that allows high payloads up to 23 kg e.g.

SoundPLAN User Training Workshop
Noise Contour Examples from SoundPLAN training

The 2 day SoundPLAN Software Training  is intended for those engineers and technicians with little or no experience with SoundPLAN software and for users who have not had any formal SoundPLAN training.  Attendees will develop several  noise models and predict the noise from an industrial plant, local roads, a rail system, a race track, a constru

In-house Training & Workshop

Navcon Engineering Network conducts seminars and workshops on a variety of noise and vibration related topics.  Educating between 80 to 125 engineers and technicians per year, each presentation is custom tailored for the specific audience. 

Some of the custom training topics are as follows:

Vibration Consulting Services - Overview

Navcon engineers have a strong background in physics, mechanical design, digital data acquisition, vibration and noise. This combination of theory & application, analysis & test allows us to attack a wide variety of vibration or noise related projects. Following is a brief list of our general vibration services:

SIDLAB Double Plug Muffler Flow Model Schematic

SIDLAB Flow is a very quick 1D tool to calculate the pressure drop introduced by the designed muffler system. It calculates the flow distribution and pressure drop inside the network using a two-port formulation, and feeds the results into the acoustic calculation in SIDLAB Acoustics.


The APS 0109 Zero-Position-Controller automatically controls the zero position of a vibration exciter irrespective of the payload. It is essential to employ a position controller of type APS 0109 especially when working with a vibration exciter without any integrated load compensation.
