December 3, 2014 - The REF2500 handheld shaker quickly and easily checks operation and set-up of accelerometers and velocity sensors in the field. Ensure confidence in the entire measurement chain before beginning expensive tests and calibration. The REF2500 promotes continuous cost savings through affordability and steady equipment performance.

REF2500 checks acceleration and velocity measurements with no imperial-metric conversions - no extra steps and no calculations. Frequency and measurement type (peak or RMS) can be selected at the push of a button.


  • 61.4 Hz for imperial measurements: 1 g (acceleration) equivalent to 1 in/sec (velocity)
  • 100 Hz to simulate standard calibration conditions
  • 159.2 Hz for metric measurements: 9.81 m/sec2 (acceleration) equivalent to 9.81 mm/sec (velocity)
  • Keyring and caribiner easily attaches to belt loops or tool belts
  • Carrying case with shoulder strap organizes accessories for easy transport
  • Battery life of up to 40 continuous hours allows extensive tests

ReferenceMate hass designed with multiple features that ensure accurate readings and proper operation. LED indicators activate if battery levels are low or if the unit is overloaded. A built-in reference accelerometer maintains a 1 g test level for sensors weighing up to 250 grams.

The ReferenceMate 2510 industrial kit is ideal for use with sensors monitoring manufacturing equipment and rotating machinery.

REF2510 includes:

  • Handheld shaker REF2500
  • AA batteries
  • Calibration sheet
  • Belt clip
  • Wrench
  • Carrying case with foam insert
  • ¼-28 to ¼-28 stud compatible with most industrial accelerometers
