Casella Havex tri-axial hand arm vibration meter

Havex tri-axial hand arm vibration meter

The HAVex was designed specifically to conduct accurate Hand Arm Vibration readings to comply with The Control of Vibration at Work Regulations (2005)

This simple to use hand arm vibration meter (HAV) enables you to measure the vibration levels of the tools your employees use to ensure they are not over-exposed to hand arm vibration during their daily routine.

Once measured, the HAVex provides you with the actual level of vibration (as opposed to manufacturers’ figures alone) of a particular tool.  This data can be used to calculate actual exposure time into HSE Exposure Points.  Please follow the link to the ready reckoner to calculate daily exposures.  The ready reckoner covers a range of vibration magnitudes up to 40m/s2 and range of exposure times up to 10 hours.  The data can also be used to enable you to create a database of tool condition and maintenance.

Designed with only 3 operational buttons, take measurements with the HAVex hand arm vibration meter (HAVS) with ease and view in real time on the large colour display.  The HAVex also has a rechargeable battery so it’s ready for use when you are.  The HAVex also stores data which can be downloaded via the VibDataLite Vibration Analysis Software, allowing you to keep a permanent record for compliance purposes.  The VibData Lite software is completely free and is supplied with the meter.
