In this paper we present experimental results on the control of seismic attenuators and inertial platforms with horizontal monolithic sensors based on the classical folded pendulum architecture (Watt's linkage), taking ad- vantage of some of its peculiar characteristics like compactness and robustness coupled to resonance frequency tunability and high sensitivity over a large measurement band. We show that the main resonant frequencies of the inertial platform used for the tests, located in the frequency band 0.01 ± 10Hz, can be controlled with horizontal monolithic folded pendulums configured as seismometers (inertial sensors), presenting and discussing the control approach and the results.
