Measuring Hand Arm Vibration
It is advisable to validate your instrument prior to, and after taking measurements using a known vibration source, such as the Castle GA606 Vibration Calibrator.
To ensure measurements are as accurate and as repeatable as possible always ensure that your cable is tightened securely to your accelerometer and that the accelerometer is mounted as securely and as flush as possible to the vibration source. The trailing cable of the accelerometer should also be attached to the vibration source without creating a potential hazard for the operator or other people.
Where possible always mount the accelerometer as near to the centre of where the operator holds and grips the vibration source. In reality this is not always possible and the best compromise must be achieved.
Measurement durations are dependent on the vibration source, and a minimum period of 30 seconds for Hand Arm Vibration is recommended. Measurement periods of 3 to 15 minutes are often used for Hand Arm vibration. These increased durations will undoubtedly increase the accuracy and repeatability of your measured results.
Keeping it Simple
Modern tri-axial accelerometers make measuring hand arm vibration levels much easier than ever before. With the Vexo H combating HAVS has become even easier thanks to the small and powerful meter, easy to read colour display and three button operation. All you need to do is press the power button and start recording.
The 'Flash' memory in the Vexo H is large enough to store all the data you collect. The data can then be downloaded to the VibdataPro Vibration Analysis Software for further analysis.
Standard Vibration Measurement
Adhering to ISO 5349:2001 has never been easier. You can now monitor a worker's vibration exposure and coupled with the Integrator Software for Health & Safety and HR, you can keep a complete record of vibration measurements.
Take Hand-Arm vibration measurement to the next level with the Vexo H Tri-Axial Hand-Arm Vibration Meter.
