INTRODUCING THE NEXT GENERATION OF SHAKER TESTING: LDS V8800 + XPA-K SHAKER SYSTEM
A new medium-force electrodynamic shaker system with high shock performance and low energy consumption. Ideal for various R&D and testing scenarios in the automotive, aerospace, transport, packaging and defence industries.LDS V8800
Watch the launch event to find out about the V8800 shaker system and how it will optimize vibration testing costs. Tim Gardiner and Tim Bidwell from HBK LDS will talk you through:
- User and market challenges in vibration testing
- The characteristics and tech specs of the V8800 + XPA-K shaker system
- Possible testing applications and system performance
- The benefits of the Inductive Centring System

LDS V8800 + XPA-K Shaker System FAQs:
The 100g 11ms shock performance is very impressive. How is this possible without the traditional matching transformer?
All tests on an electro-dynamic shaker (including shock tests) require certain electrical power to run the test and this is defined by the voltage and amps. When the shaker requirements exceed the electrical capabilities of the power amplifier (either volts or current), it is addressed by connecting the shaker and amplifier via a transformer that matches the requirements (hence the term matching transformer, MTX).
For the new V8800 shaker powered by the XPAK amplifier it is possible as a standard feature to adjust the electrical power requirements of the shaker for this test to be met by the output of the XPAK without the need for the MTX.
I am more interested in the reduction of acoustic noise with the field. I’ve been asking for likely noise reductions for some time. The 0.5T fan for the V8900, for example, reaches 110 dB at full speed. What is the reduction in noise for the step reductions of the field?
