SV 106D Human Vibration Meter & Analyser

The SV  106D Six-channel Human Vibration Meter and Analyser meets the requirements of the ISO  8041-1:2017 standard and it is an ideal choice for measurements according to ISO  2631, ISO  5349 and Directive 2002/44/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council. This revolutionary, pocket-size instrument allows simultaneous measurements with two triaxial accelerometers (e.g. both-hands vibration or the triaxial transmission of vertical vibration through a vehicle seat).

The SV 106D is equipped with two 3-axial inputs for IEPE or MEMS sensors. It allows simultaneous measurements with two triaxial accelerometers (e.g. both-hands vibration or triaxial SEAT vibration transmission).

The SV 106D is suitable for vibration exposure measurements in accordance with the ISO 5349 as well as ISO 2631 standards. The A(8) vibration exposure is calculated in real time and results from both sensors are displayed simultaneously in VDV and RMS units or points.

According to ISO 5349, hand-arm vibration should be measured in place, or at the point of contact with the hand tool. SV 106D uses dedicated MEMS sensors to measure vibrations on a tool handle or directly on a hand.

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 triaxial SEAT transmission measurements are also possible

As defined by ISO 8041, a Human Vibration Meter (HVM) is a device that uses a vibrational transducer, signal processor, and display to measure human response to vibrations. HVM is typically used in hand-arm vibration measurements to prevent HAVS. In whole-body, they are typically used for the calculation of Vibration Dose Value.

What is a Human Vibration?

Human vibrations are mechanical vibrations that are transmitted directly to the human body, affecting different tissues in different ways. There are three types of human vibrations:

  • hand-arm vibration (ISO 5349);
  • whole-body vibration (ISO 2631);
  • low-frequency whole-body vibration in the frequency range from 0,1 Hz to 0,5 Hz (ISO 2631)
