Designed for measuring Hand-Arm vibrations, the Svantek SV 103 meets ISO 8041:2005 and is the ideal choice for making measurements according to ISO 5349 and European Directive 2002/44/EC.
The SV 103 from Svantek significantly decreases the measurement uncertainty as the instrument is attached to the user’s arm and is small enough to take daily vibration exposure measurements without interfering with normal working activities.
Measurement modes include RMS, Max, Peak, Peak-Peak, Vector, A(8) Daily Dose, ELV, EAV with simultaneous measurement in three channels.
The SV 103 uses the latest accelerometer from Svantek, the SV 107B, which has a contact force sensor in addition to the standard accelerometer. Contact force is the sum of grip force and push force and is therefore a measurement of how firmly a user is holding the tool being measured. This is a recommendation of the new standards and the reading from the contact force sensor is also displayed on the screen. The SV 107B accelerometer is based on MEMS, the very latest in transducer technology. MEMS gives many 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.
Lightweight and easy to use, the SV 103 is battery operated and will run for up to 24 hours on one charge.
