C-Series Shaker Systems

C-Series ShakerThe MB Dynamics C10E, C40HP, C90HP and C150HP Electrodynamic Shakers comprise current deliverables in a long history of reliable and rugged shakers earning a well-deserved reputation for high performance, longevity, and dependability. They build upon MB’s family of CSeries products (C10, C25, C40, C50, C60, C90, C125, C126, C150, C200, C210, C220) with a heritage spanning 50 years.

The C-Series “HP” Shakers offer exceptionally high acceleration levels with stiff armatures, have 50mm of stroke (continuous duty), full performance SINE & RANDOM tests out to 3000 Hz (usable, at reduced levels, out to 4000 Hz), rugged armatures with no resonances below 2000 Hz, reliable for shock testing using classical pulses (half sine, sawtooth, etc.) as well as time history replication, force ratings from 5kN to 80kN, vertical & horizontal operation, direct-coupled, automatic payload recentering, and trunnion isolation.

Amplifiers Used in The C-Series

P-Series Power Amplifiers drive C-Series shakers. Amps are air-cooled, pulse width modulated using MOSFET technology, 85-90% efficient, 100 – 215 VRMS output, peak currents of 3X continuous-duty, 6 and 18 kVA power modules, usable bandwidth from DC – 5000 Hz, 0.2% distortion, direct coupled, 19” racks, integral shaker field supply, control panel with normal indicators and interlocks, and reliable. The high fidelity, low noise MOSFET design is used in the medical imaging field.
