Electrodynamic Shaker Systems

Electrodynamic shaker systems and amplifiers from MB Dynamics help to support a wide range of general-purpose vibration test requirements. The electrodynamic shaker systems are offered in a variety of force ranges, from 100N (25 lbf) to 22kN (5,000 lbf). The innovative design of MB Dynamics PM-Series electrodynamic shakers incorporates permanent magnet technology and the voice coil principle to create vibration. These heavy-duty electrodynamic shakers feature a robust design for maximum reliability, with end-users reporting a useful service life of 10, 25 or even 40 years! The shakers come in five unique sizes, with peak sine force ratings of 100 N, 200 N, 500 N, 1000 N and 2000 N; or, 25 lbf, 50 lbf, 100 lbf, 250 lbf and 500 lbf. The MB Dynamics C40HP electrodynamic shaker outputs 22 kN or 5,000 lbf peak. The C40HP is a part of the legacy C-Series of shakers, which have served as the foundation for today’s modern electrodynamic vibration test equipment industry.

PM25, PM50, PM100 and PM250 electrodynamic shaker systems from MB Dynamics are powered by either the MB500VI or MB1000VI amplifier. The PM500 and C40 are powered by selections from the P-Series amplifier family. MB can provide its MB Millenium Hawk vibration controllers, horizontal moving tables, slip tables, vibration fixtures, accelerometers, and applications know-how, to assist customers in the implementation of a vibration test system turnkey installation.

Because MB Dynamics electrodynamic shaker systems, including the C10, C90 and C150, are known to last for decades, end-users have relied upon the expertise of MB to upgrade these shakers, whether those upgrades include strokes of 50 mm pk-pk; retrofits with modern amplifiers; or added vibration controllers, to further extend shaker useful service life. The team at MB Dynamics takes pride in supporting an end-user’s continued use of their original MB shaker equipment for many years into the future.
