The Talboys Advanced 5000 Orbital Shaker is designed for a wide range of applications with larger or heavier loads that require accurate and repeatable results.

Orbital Shaker is supplied with an 18 x 24" (45.7 x 61cm) non-skid rubber mat. Shaker includes a 5 year, industry leading limited warranty on parts and labor.

Operating Conditions: Orbital Shaker can be run in cold rooms, incubators, and CO2 environments from -10 to 60°C (14 to 140°F), maximum 80% relative humidity, non-condensing.


  • Exclusive Patented Accu-Drive Shaking System
  • Accu-Drive Shaking System delivers exceptional speed control, accuracy and durability. The shaking system continuously monitors shaking speed and maintains set-point, even under changing loads. When unit is set to a speed above 100rpm, the speed accuracy is ±1% of set speed. When set under 100rpm, speed accuracy is ±1 rpm.
  • LED Displays for speed and time. Touch pad controls with easy-to-read, independent LED displays for speed and time allow operator to view both settings at once. Provides repeatable and accurate results every time and is easily visible across lab benches. Timer will display elapsed time, or when programmed to user defined limit, will shut off unit when time reaches zero. Display will show last used settings, even after power has been turned off.
  • The variable speed microprocessor control provides consistent uniform shaking action. The shaker will automatically restart after a power interruption.
  • RS-232 Interface provides two-way communication for data logging and unit control.
  • Triple Eccentric Drive Permanently lubricated ball bearings and maintenance free, brushless DC motor provides reliable service and continuous duty operation.
  • Speed Ramping Feature slowly increases speed to desired set-point to avoid splashing.
  • Speed calibration mode allows user to automatically recalibrate speed display.
  • Low profile design takes up less space and easily fits into most fume hoods and incubators. Cast aluminum base offers durability and added stability.
  • Spill-Resistant design channels fluids away from internal components.
  • Load Sensor detects unbalanced conditions and automatically reduces rpm to a safe speed to protect samples.
  • Overload protection audible and visual signals will activate when system detects an obstruction or overload of the tray.
  • Audible Alarm in timed mode, alarm will sound when time reaches zero. Alarm has optional mute function which can be set from the touch pad controls.
  • 5 year industry leading warranty

Also available with a NIST Traceable Calibration Certificate provided by Troemner's ISO/IEC 17025 accredited laboratory. Multiple data points within the speed range and time function are reported on the certificate with the associated uncertainties. Please allow a two week lead time for certification.

I have an application where I need to shake items under vacuum. Can the Talboys Advanced 5000 Orbital Shaker be used in a high-vacuum environment?

There could be issues with the controls. There is a small air pocket behind the buttons on the front panel, and placing the unit under vacuum would remove that air and cause the buttons not to function. If you do not need very precise control, the Standard Analog 5000 would be recommended above the Advanced 5000 for such an application.
