Abstract We present the investigation results of vibration characteristics of miniature stirling electric coolers, which can be used for compact HPGe spectrometers for space applications. Comparative assessment between three Stirling cycle coolers – two Ricor model K508 coolers and one Thales model RM3 cooler were done. In spite of the limited number of the coolers tested, the following conclusions can be made, that there are significant differences in the vibration characteristics between the various types of coolers and between coolers of the same type. To categorize the vibration characteristics of the coolers we carried out our tests by different methods in certified Vibroacoustic laboratory and BSI laboratory. The results obtained in our laboratory follow the same trends and give the same ranking as the test results obtained in the Vibroacoustic laboratory.
