Active isolators cancel the incoming vibration by generating a dynamic force of same magnitude in opposite phase through the use of electro-dynamic actuators, thus improving the low frequency performance of the suspension. The goal is to improve the insulation of vibration in the range 10 to 1000 Hz even more – according to the needs of the application.

Active structure borne noise control is managed by introducing interior actuators in the transmission paths between the source of noise/vibration and the receiver.

The applications of STRACTIVE™ are endless: reactive silencer, electric motor, transformers, internal combustion engines, structures, pumps, to name a few. It is particularly suited for hybrid and diesel-electric propulsion rafted systems.
