Shock-Mount Option for IDAN®


The IDAN® shock and vibration isolation base plate is ideal for mounting PC/104 Systems in aircraft, shipboard or vehicular applications. The system can be installed in any attitude yielding superior high frequency vibration isolation along with low resonant amplification increasing equipment reliability and extending component life. The IDAN-Base-SM includes a flanged base plate for mounting, 4 shock mount isolators, and a bottom plate which can be assembled in any standard IDAN® system.


  • All attitude isolators
  • Meets crash safety requirements of MIL-E-5400
    (30g 11 millisecond half-sine pulse shock)
  • Meets MIL-E-5400 requirements for resistance to ozone, humidity, salt spray, and fungus
  • Meets MIL-S-901 lightweight Grade B Navy high impact
    shock test requirements
  • Isolates under sustained loadings of up to 5 g
  • Provides efficient vibration isolation at frequencies above 40 Hz
  • Natural Frequency: 15 - 40 Hz
  • Transmissibility at Resonance: 4.0 Max
  • Resilient Element Hi-Damp Silicone
  • Operating temperature range -55°C to 150°C

On November 1, 1999 the RTD BME Laboratories evaluated the vibration resistance of the shock mount isolation base plate. View the white paper for the study. Several videos were taken and are available to download. Save the links below to your computer to view (note: these are large files).

History (1) of IDAN Movie (1.33MB .avi file)

  • 1cm p-p 10 Hz platform vibration

History (2) of IDAN Movie (6.44MB .avi file)

  • 00:00...00:22 -- Calibration of accelerometer and amplifier.
    • The acceleration is 1g RMS, 160 Hz
    • The Accelerometer sensitivity is 5 mv/g
    • Gain is 100, so 1 g means 500 mV
  • 00:23...00:47 -- Random noise excitation.
    • The spectra of the platform acceleration can be seen on the spectrum analyzer,
      the voltmeter shows the 10 g RMS value.
  • 00:48...00:54 -- the experimental setup
