V9940 Shaker Platform for EV Shock & Vibration Testing

Aug. 15, 2023
Hottinger Bru?el & Kjær's high-force, water-cooled shaker platform tests EV battery vibration and shock performance.

The V9940 shaker platform is specifically for vibration and shock testing on electric vehicle (EV) battery modules and packs, e-axles, and e-drive trains. Designed primarily for testing EV battery systems during prototype development to validate product release to series production, the V9940 shaker system can also be used for end-of-line sample testing to validate manufacturing process parameters and ensure consistency of quality, making it ideal for vehicle and battery manufacturers, independent test houses and systems Integrators.


The platform is an end-to-end solution, with HBK project managers taking responsibility for the full project, from initial inquiry to go-live and throughout the working life of the system. A professional service team will provide global support and preventive maintenance to maximize the availability of the shaker system and ensure a long-term return on investment.
