Operating Features:

  • Low Profile Design: Takes up less space and easily fits into most hoods and incubators.
  • Microprocessor Control: The variable speed microprocessor control provides consistent uniform shaking action. Microprocessor will display last set-point and will restart if power is interrupted.

  • LED Display: 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.

Safety Features:

  • Overload Protection: Audible and visual signals will activate when system detects an obstruction or overload of the tray.
  • Speed Ramping Feature: Slowly increases speed to desired set-point to avoid splashing.

What is the resolution of the speed settings on the 3 mm shaker?

The speed is adjustable in 10 rpm increments from 100 to 500 rpm, and in 25 rpm increments from 500 to 1200 rpm.


What is the resolution of the speed settings on the 15 mm shaker?

The speed is adjustable in 1 rpm increments.


I see a lot of attachments for these Shakers, but not a universal platform. How do I affix the attachments?

For the Digital Light Duty 3mm & 15 mm Orbital series shakers, the platform is built into the tray. Just remove the rubber mat and you'll be able to screw the various attachments directly onto the shaking platform.
