New CEL-960 Human Vibration Meter offers remote operation for more easier measurement of hand-arm and whole-body vibration

Further demonstrating its commitment to helping employers reduce or eliminate the risks associated withexposure to vibration, Casella CEL(www.casellameasurement.com; 01234 844100)has launched its lightweight CEL-960 Human Vibration Meter, complete with associated dB98 software, and featuring remote operation mode for easier measurements and better quality data.

This cutting-edge instrument features a compact yet robust design and is purpose developed to measure ‘hand-arm’ (HAV) and ‘whole-body’ (WBV) vibrations, according to the requirements of European Directive 2002/44/EC. Hand-arm vibration is associated with the use of hand-held power tools and can be the cause of significant ill health, including painful and disabling disorders of the blood vessels, nerves and joints.

Whole-body vibration is transmitted through a seat or feet of employees who drive mobile machines, or other work vehicles, over rough and uneven surfaces as a main part of their job. Large shocks and jolts may cause health risks, including back pain.

Exposure measuring for HAV or WBV vibration is made exceptionally simple with the CEL-960, having just one button to operate the unit. It can also be easily operated remotely via Bluetooth to a laptop or tablet PC which means that the person conducting the measurement does not get in the way of the machine operator whose exposure is being monitored. This allows a better quality of data to be collected.

Comprising an acquisition unit, signal processing, data storage and data transfer, the CEL-960 measures tri-axial vibration levels and offers signal and 1/3 octave spectrum recording. It also features a presence detector (for whole body vibration) and warning light, as well as 20-hour operating life.

Fully compliant with standards ISO 8041 (2005), ISO 5349 (2001) and ISO 2361 (1997), the CEL-960 comes complete with transducer, desktop charger, dB96 wireless remote control software, carrying case, CD and documentation.
