V901-2 : Vibrock Whole Body Vibration Recorder + Vibration Dose Value Measurement £ 33 a day *
Vibrock Dual Channel Whole Body Vibration Meter

Vibrock - dual channel vibration analyser for continuous level recording or event monitoring and/or recording VDV vibration dose levels.

Delivered with
a triaxial PPV - Peak Particle Velocity transducer **
a triaxial VDV - Vibration Dose Value transducer.

The PPV vibration transducer details are detailed here

VDV - Vibration Dose Value
When using the VDV vibration dose value transducer, the instrument complies with BS 6472 and BS 7482 part 3 with automatic day/night change over. Both 30 second and 1 hour dose levels are recorded and the resultant 16 or 8 hour values calculated in the range 0.025 to 10 m/s- 1.75.

Ideal for whole body vibration measurements when the operator is standing on the vibrating surface.

You can also record the PPV levels etc., on the other channel - transducer supplied.

Vibrock V901 Specifications

Robust, weatherproof and lightweight - kit also includes PC download software with a cable.
The transducer leads are 1.2 m long, order extension cables if required.

** If you need a second channel for additional PPV measurements, then add an extra PPV transducer and suitable extension cables

* Our standard hire charges are based on a 4-day minimum period, details other options
