Rion VX-54WH Hand-Arm Vibration Program for the Rion VM-54

The Rion VM-54 with the VX-54WH Whole Body Vibration option has made taking hand-arm vibration measurements a realistic prospect for manufacturers, consultants and occupational health professionals. It calculates the required vector sum vibration level with the correct weightings in the meter. It's easy to use and data handling is extremely quick, simple and convenient. You can see the results immediately on the screen or you can import them directly into a spreadsheet from the comma separated variable text files stored on the instrument’s compact flash card.

It's open architecture so you can use pretty much any accelerometers (including line drive) but you should check out Rion's excellent miniature PV-97 and the small PV-93. We also provide excellent practical accessories to facilitate taking accurate hand arm vibration measurements on tools.
