Barnstead® MaxQ Platform Shakers
The small MaxQ 2000 and the larger MaxQ 3000 Open-Air Platform Shakers each employ a triple eccentric drive that handles heavier loads, provides smooth, uniform agitation of full or unbalanced loads, even at high speeds, and enables 24-hour operation. Each will operate in environmental temperatures of 32° to 104°F (0° to 40°C) and 20% to 80% relative humidity (noncondensing), making them ideal for use in incubators, warm rooms, environmental chambers and refrigerators. Leveling feet increase stability at high load-speed combinations. Each model is available with either an analog or a digital operating system.more
Analog Operating System: comes with a DC motor and variable speed control, from 40 to 400rpm. Integrated tachometer displays speed in rpm, assuring accurate setting. Rotary dial speed control includes metal locking tab that prevents accidental change in speed. Shaker runs in continuous mode, or set timer from 1 to 60 minutes for time studies.
Digital Operating System: comes with a solid-state DC brushless motor, variable speed control from 15 to 500rpm, and continuous or timed operation from 0.1 hour up to 99.9 hours, or 0.1 minute to 99.9 minutes. Displayed time counts down during timed operation and up during continuous operation. If unit operates at more than ±10% of set speed, or in the event of an unbalanced load, audible/visual alarms go off and platform stops, preventing shaker from walking. When speed must be verified or protocols standardized, user can calibrate speed using digital handheld tachometer. Soft-start feature helps prevent sudden starts and stops, eliminating splashing of vessel contents. During power failure, set point retention retains operating parameters. Unit restarts automatically when power is restored. RS232 interface allows remote monitoring of speed and time.
