John Morris Industrial has released the new HVM200 Human Vibration Meter from Larson Davis for industrial hygiene and product testing applications.
The HVM200 is used to measure human exposure to vibration in order to prevent injury and better understand workplace hazards and product performance.
The HVM200 includes the functionality needed to measure the hand-arm vibration and whole body vibration requirements in support of the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) Threshold Limit Values (TLVs) and directive 2002/44/EC of European Parliament.
This meter provides options available for 1/1 and 1/3 octave filters (0.5 Hz to 2000 Hz and 0.4 Hz to 2500 Hz respectively) and raw vibration data recording. Data can then be archived or transferred using USB, Wi-Fi or a removable micro SD memory card.
Industrial hygienists and product test engineers can now leverage the power of their phones or tablets by acquiring the free app available on Google Play and the Apple App Store. This app can be used in conjunction with the HVM200 to setup a test, make the measurements, and view the results.
Vibration data taken with the HVM200 can also be viewed and analysed on a personal computer using the HVM option for the Larson Davis G4 software. With the G4 HVM software option you can download data and view it in graphical or tabular format. You can also perform "what-if' analyses by graphically modifying the data and recalculating results. Then a report can be generated and the data can be exported for archival or further processing.
Ken Cox, Larson Davis Product manager said "With this new product, measuring human vibration exposure is as easy as using an App on your phone or tablet. All the required functionality is built in and made simple from setup to results."
