Svantek reports increased demand for SV103 personal hand-arm vibration exposure meter
06 April 2016
Further reinforcing its position at the forefront of high performance noise and vibration monitoring instrumentation, Svantek is reporting significant demand for its SV103 personal hand-arm vibration exposure meter.
The popular instrument easily 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.
Svantek’s well-proven SV103 incorporates an additional contact force transducer that measures whether the tool is being gripped correctly. The lightweight, easy to use instrument meets ISO8041:2005 and is suitable for taking measurements in accordance with ISO5349 and European Directive 2002/44/EC.
Most assessment methods for hand-arm vibration are subject to a very high level of uncertainty. Vibration measurement accuracy can vary in the range of ± 20% to 40% which makes a big difference in relation to the risk of operators developing white finger disease.
The SV103 has set a new benchmark in hand-arm vibration exposure monitoring. It significantly reduces measurement uncertainty as it is strapped to the operator’s arm and is small enough to take daily vibration exposure measurements without interfering with normal working activities.
