Choose the MaxQ 2000 for smaller loads and the 3000 for larger ones. The triple-eccentric drive handles heavy loads, provides uniform agitation and continuous 24/7 operation, even at high speeds. The CO2-resistant digital unit can be used continuously in a CO2 incubator without malfunction or the formation of carbolic acid on electrical components.

  • With Variable speed of 40 to 400rpm
  • Platform sizes accept loads up to 35 lb. on 2000 and 50 lb. on 3000 model

Analog Models

  • Variable speed from 40 to 400rpm, controlled by a rotary dial monitored accurately by a traditional tachometer
  • Perform timed studies with timed operation from 1 to 60 min. or operate shaker in continuous mode
Digital Models
  • Variable speed control from 15 to 500rpm
  • Continuous and timed operation from 0.1 hr. up to 999 hr. or 0.1 min. to 999 min.
  • Minimize errors: speed and operating time display simultaneously on two individual LED displays
  • Shaker shutdown and audible/visual alarms signal if unit operates ±10% of set speed, preventing shaker from walking
  • User-adjustable speed calibration can be performed using a digital handheld tachometer, where verification is required and protocols can be standardized
  • Unbalanced load sensor stops platform motion when excess vibration is detected and visual/audible alarms signal until condition is corrected
  • Soft-start feature eliminates sudden starts and stops, splashing of vessel contents or wetting of flask closure
  • Retains parameters during power failure and restarts unit automatically after power is restored
  • RS232 interface allows remote monitoring of speed and time
CO2-Resistant Digital Operating System
  • Electrical and mechanical components treated to protect them from up to 10% CO2 and 95% noncondensing humidity
  • Prevents humidity and CO2 from reacting with electrical components and forming carbolic acid
