Svantek SV 103 Hand-Arm Vibration Dosimeter

The Svantek SV 103 Human Vibration Meter 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. 

The SV 103 Human Vibration Meter uses our latest accelerometer, the SV 107, that 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 vibrating tool. This is a recommendation of the new standards and the reading from the contact force sensor is also displayed on the screen. 

The standard SV 103 kit includes personal vibration meter together with a detachable triaxial accelerometer SV107 with set of adapters for a hand mounting. The USB cable for the communication with PC software (license for PC software is included) and the SA 54 charger for recharging the inbuilt battery is provided. Each SV103 has its factory calibration certificate and 36-months warranty upon registration. 



Hand-Arm Vibration

Hand-arm vibration meter 
in accordance to ISO 5349 and ISO 8041

Hand-arm vibration occurs when one or both of the upper limbs is in contact with a vibrating surface (e.g. power tools, steering wheels and levers to control vehicles). Changes in the human body resulting from contact with mechanical vibrations are recognized as an occupational disease called “vibration syndrome” (or “vibration disease”). The only effective way to avoid vibration disease is by prevention. The ISO 5349 contributes to the gathering of consistent data in order to improve occupational safety. In particular, ISO 5349 specifies the general requirements for the measurement and evaluation of human exposure to hand-transmitted vibration. 



ISO 5349-2 and European 2002/44/EC

A(8) vibration exposure both in m/s² and points

SV 103 measures the A(8) vibration exposure in accordance with the ISO 5349-2 and European 2002/44/EC both in m/s² and points. The exposure time is automatically selected with the force detection sensor and can be verified in the PC software.
