LDS Shaker Systems
LDS V555 Low-Force Shaker
Designed to reproduce field vibration environments in controlled settings, LDS® V555 is used in R&D in the automotive, aerospace & defence, and consumer electronics industries – where strict standards demand that products be subjected to real-world conditions while ensuring safety during the testing process and confidence in the results.
- Testing of automotive components, such as motorcycle brake lines and seat belt mechanisms
- Aerospace component testing, including tests of aircraft instrumentation systems
- Testing of electronic assemblies
- Structural dynamics testing and modal analysis
- Vibration stress testing under varied environmental conditions
- In-house testing and calibration facilities
The smallest of our low-force shakers, V555 is a dependable, versatile and cost-effective alternative for a variety of testing needs, including product qualification, quality assurance, machinery diagnostics and instrument calibration. Capable of delivering peak sine forces of 940 N (211 lbf) and operating in frequencies from 5 to 6300 Hz, this shaker is suitable for shock and vibration tests using sinusoidal and random excitations.
For enhanced acceleration and velocity performances, the armature assembly incorporates a unique suspension system specifically developed to offer better lateral and rotational restraints and axial stiffness. Additionally, a built-in pneumatic mechanism provides support for both the armature and the payload and allows the shaker to accommodate devices up to 25 kg (55 lb) for testing.
As standard, V555 comes mounted on a solid cast-iron trunnion and can be locked in the vertical or horizontal position for operation on either axis. The trunnion itself is supported by four air-isolation mounts to prevent shaker-generated vibrations from travelling through the floor; this is particularly useful for sine testing at very low frequencies.
