Svantek has launched what is said to be the world’s first personal hand-arm vibration exposure meter.
The SV103 attaches to the operator’s arm whilst the lightweight MEMS accelerometer straps to the hand making it the only device to accurately measure the vibration dose being received.
In addition, Svantek’s new SV103 incorporates an additional contact force transducer that measures whether the tool is being gripped correctly. The lightweight instrument meets ISO8041:2005 and is suitable for taking measurements in accordance with ISO5349 and European Directive 2002/44/EC.
The device offers 1/1 or 1/3 octave real-time analysis and is powered using rechargeable batteries or through the USB 2.0 interface which enables interconnection between the instrument and a PC. The measurement data is stored in the large 8GB memory.
It operates in conjunction with Svantek’s ‘Supervisor’ software which allows instrument configuration, viewing and exporting of measurement data and daily vibration exposure recalculations. A colour OLED screen displays information in both text and graphical form and the triaxial MEMS accelerometer incorporates shock resistance, very low power and frequency response down to DC.
