SV106 Human Vibration Meter
from Svantek

Microphones and Accelerometers

SV 106 is a new six-channel human vibration meter and analyser. Instrument meets ISO 8041:2005 standard and it is an ideal choice for measurements according to ISO 2631-1,2&5 and ISO 5349. This revolutionary, pocket-size instrument enables simultaneous measurements with two triaxial accelerometers (e.g. both-hands vibration or triaxial SEAT transmission measurements are possible).

The RMS, Peak, Peak-Peak, VDV, MTVV, A(8) or Dose results with all required weighting filters for the HVM measurements are available with this instrument. Using computational power of its digital signal processor, the SV 106 can perform real-time 1/1 or 1/3 octave analysis simultaneously to the meter mode. Advanced time-history logging and time-domain signal recording (according to the
ISO 2631-5) to built-in Micro SD flash card give almost unlimited capabilities of data storage.

Results can be easily downloaded to PC using USB interface and SvanPC+ software. SvanPC+ software also provides the setup-editor function which manages the instrument’s settings. The Whole-Body vibration measurement is easier thanks to SV 38V seat-accelerometer which can be placed directly on the seat-cushion, floor or fixed to the back of the seat. The SV 50 set with triaxial accelerometer enables Hand-Arm vibration measurements regardless of the type of evaluated tool.

Additionally, for measurements of very high impulse vibration the special adapter SA 55, with low pass mechanical filter protecting accelerometer from DC shift effect, is available. Evaluation of the grip force will be accessible with dedicated “integrated adapter” SV 105 (under development stage).
