Support for the Infinity Rocker™
Will Infinity Rockers™ work with different voltages (in different countries)?
Yes. The rocker uses 12V DC supplied by a small external power supply that plugs into a wall outlet. Next Advance will supply the appropriate power supply for the local power and wall outlet configuration.
What is the maximum load?
The rocker can handle 11 lbs. (5 kg).
What is the range for the tilt angle?
The amount that the rocker platform tilts back and forth can be adjusted from as little as +/- 1 degree to as much as +/- 18 degrees.
What is the rocking rate?
For Infinity Rockers, the rocking rate can be as slow as barely moving to a maximum speed of 80 cycles per minute (160 rocking motions per minute).
Can I use these rockers in incubators or cold rooms?
Our rockers can operate in incubators or cold rooms (down to 4°C) if the temperature is kept constant and the humidity is not excessive. Temperature swings which cause condensation will damage the electronics and void the warranty. In fact, the electronic circuitry includes additional heat sinks to ensure reliable operation at elevated temperatures.
How do I adjust the tilt angle?
To adjust the angle, use a flat blade screwdriver to loosen the labeled screw on the rear of the instrument, slide the linkage to the desired position, then tighten the screw.
How do I adjust the rocking rate?
You can turn the knob on the front of the instrument to adjust the rocking speed.
Can I clean the rubber mat?
Yes. You can remove the rubber mat from the platform and clean it with soap and water. Let it dry before placing it back on the platform.Infinity

If the rocker is not turning on…
Check that the rocker is plugged in and that the power switch on the front of the instrument is turned on.If the unit still doesn’t turn on, shut the system off for 15 minutes to allow the electronics to reset. If the rocker does not turn on after this period, contact customer service.
If rocking stops intermittently…
Check that the rocker is not overloaded with too much weight. If it is not, the brushes in the motor of the Next Rocker may be worn out. We can refurbish the rocker for you, or if you have someone with excellent mechanical skills, you can order a motor or brushes from us (call or email us for more information) and replace it yourself.
If rocking motion is uneven…
Check that the rocker is not overloaded with too much weight and that the weight is distributed evenly across the rocker tray. If weight distribution does not appear to be the issue, the angle adjustment screw may need to be tightened. Check the back of the instrument to find the screw located on the cam.
