A water-cooled electrodynamic shaker for shock and high-performance vibration tests of extra-large payloads up to 5000 kg (11,000 lb), such as satellites, electronic assemblies and defence hardware. It has a peak sine force rating of 289.1 kN (65,000 lbf).
The largest and most powerful shaker in the LDS® range, V994 is used for durability and reliability testing of some of the world’s most complex products and applications, including avionics, telecommunication and satellite systems, military instrumentation, and commercial aircraft components. Built for high-frequency, high-force vibration and shock testing, it can be arranged in single- or multi-shaker configurations.
Three-axis testing of complete satellite systems
Durability tests of avionics and military hardware
Structural dynamics testing, including SRS analysis, Test-FEA integration, and classical and operational modal analyses
Testing in cleanrooms and controlled environments, such as aerospace test facilities
Tests involving hazardous materials, including transport simulation
Multi-shaker, multi-axis applications, such as satellite and rocket testing
CHARACTERISTICSStrong and sturdy, V994 is the ideal choice when testing requires that oversize products be subjected to extreme vibration conditions. As well as delivering high forces, thanks to its rolling armature the shaker can achieve up to 50.8 mm (2 in) displacement for sine operation and 63.5 mm (2.5 in) for transient pulses. The large diameter of the armature – 760 mm (29.9 in) – offers ample load-mounting surface to easily and securely accommodate large devices for testing.
