Svantek launch world’s first personal vibration dosimeter
Svantek have launched the SV 103, the first ever personal hand-arm vibration exposure meter. It meets ISO 8041:2005 and is the perfect choice for making measurements according to ISO 5349 and European Directive 2002/44/EC.
The SV 103 significantly decreases the measurement uncertainty as it’s attached to the user’s arm and is small enough to take daily vibration exposure measurements without interfering with normal working activities.
The SV 103 is powered using rechargeable batteries or through the USB interface which also enables easy interconnection between the instrument and a PC. The measurement data is safely stored in the large 8 GB memory. The instrument works with Svantek’s powerful “Supervisor” software which allows instrument configuration as well as the viewing and exporting of measurement data and daily vibration exposure recalculations. The colour OLED screen displays information in both text and graphical form, offering superb visibility even in full daylight.
The SV103 uses a MEMS accelerometer, the very latest in transducer technology. MEMS gives a number of advantages including shock resistance, very low power and frequency response down to DC. The usage of MEMS breaks the technological barrier of a weight and dimensions additionally reducing the cost of the complete system.
