ELSTAR Elektronik AG is a Swiss company formed in 1984 specialising in the field of vibration and mechanical shock.

Today ELSTAR has grown into a company providing industry worldwide with Vibration measurement systems, mechanical shock test machines, expert field measurement services particularly in the area of rotating machinery. ELSTAR is also a supplier of accelerometers, vibration testing equipment high voltage safety testers and laboratory power sources for the Swiss market.

Mechanical Shock Test Machines 

STM Plakat kl

For over 15 years, Elstar have been manufacturing a range of shock test machines for payloads of between 5 and 200kg. These machines are closed loop controlled and have a shock repetition rate of up to 60 shocks a minute.

High repeatability of shock quality is a key factor when carrying out shock testing and we believe that we manufacture a machine that produces the very best quality in the industry.

This is indorsed by a large number of machines being delivered to the Swiss watch and the precision optics industry.

Signal Analysers

elstar starline software

General purpose FFT spectrum and time domain analyser with powerful recording functions have been developed and sold worldwide.

There are many FFT analysers on the market but few with the capability of our Corvus system.

We don’t just sell our software, we are able to support it through our in house expertise. We are able to give comprehensive assistance to almost any measuring task.

Rotating Machinery


By working closely with several world class power plant manufacturers Elstar has developed and supplied a series of vibration monitoring and analysis systems ranging from simple 4 channel portable systems up to plant monitoring and test bed systems with several hundred dynamic channels.

We also supply one of the world’s most advanced Run out measurement system. Our Orbistar system measures using wireless technology and has been supplied to factories worldwide.

We have built up a team of engineers with many years of practical field experience who have helped to develop these systems.

  • ELSTAR Services
  • Sensor calibration, we are able to calibrate accelerometers, eddy probes or velocity transducers at your site or ours.
  • On installations that use our Cabstar system, we are able to measure the complete measurement chain using a vibration table in the balancing pit. We measure simultaneously the Cabstar measurement values and compare to a local calibration system, this enables us to measure the line loss. The transducer calibration value and line loss can be entered into Cabstar for line loss compensation.
  • Bearing pedestal stifness. Using our centrifugal exciter we are able to measure the force being applied to the bearing pedestal through three calibrated force transducers. With this method we can provide a traceable stifness measurement for your balancing bearing pedestal.
  • Remote service access. With your permition we are able to use VNC to remote the access your Cabstar system in order to assist online any issues which may occur.
  • Elstar offers a range of service contracts which cover worldwide support (we support installations in America, Europe and Asia) to assist you with service planning.
