Model 816 Electrodynamic Shaker
The Glotech/Ling Model 816VH Shaker is a wideband, air-cooled, electrodynamic shaker designed for continuous duty testing of small to medium sized specimens for product qualification, reliability acceptance, and production stress screening application.
The shaker employs Ling’s field-proven composite leaf flexures and high stiffness linear bearing for armature guidance. Heavy duty hexagonal head raised armature table inserts afford rigid, rattle-free attachment to test fixtures.
The 816VH body suspension employs the exclusive Lin-E-Air pneumatic isolation system which suspends the body on air springs located at the trunnions. This system incorporates linear bearings which restrain and guide the body motion in the thrust axis, simplifying alignment with auxiliary horizontal tables. The low natural frequency of this body suspension system virtually eliminates the need for expensive large reaction masses for most applications.
The new “E-Class” system ratings using the new Ling Digitally Modulated Power Amplifier substantially higher peak currents to be developed in the armature drive coil for both random and shock testing.
The shaker is cooled by forced air which is exhausted by a remotely located blower to
Minimize heat and blower noise in the area adjacent to the shaker.
