This Vibration Meter is perfect for taking vibration measurements on hand power tools.
This Hand Arm Vibration Meter, the Castle Vexo H, was designed to conduct highly accurate Hand Arm Vibration measurements of your tools and machinery, helping you to comply with The Control of Vibration at Work Regulations (2005).
This is the ideal piece of equipment for Health and Safety Managers to assess vibration exposure in the workplace, giving accurate vibration magnitude measurements of your own tools being used by your own employees.
It's supplied with a simple to attach tri-axial accelerometer with which simultaneous X, Y and Z readings are taken and displayed on the screen in real time. Measurements can be taken in M/S2 or in G, and results are given for Aeq, Peak and Vector Sum. Measured data is also calculated into the HSE's easy to use colour coded points system, and also displays the Exposure Action Value (EAV) and Exposure Limit Value (ELV) times.

Designed by Castle Group Ltd, one of the world's leading organisations in the monitoring of Vibration in the workplace, this fully comliant vibration meter for Hand Arm Vibration was designed around The Control of Vibration at Work Regulations 2005.
Castle Group Ltd have been manufacturing vibration measuring equipment for over twenty years, and this particular model is the latest in a long line of successful products. The Vexo H is the most popular vibration meter for assessing tool vibration levels in the UK.
Measuring your own power tools whilst they operate on your site in the processes that your employees use them in is the most accurate way of determining vibration exposure levels. The Vexo H Vibration Meter was designed to enable you to take these vibration measurements in a simple, straightforward and time efficient manner. Measuring tools is simple:
It's Easy to Take Vibration Measurements with this Hand Arm Vibration Meter, the Castle Vexo H
Measurements can be taken in M/S2 or in G, and results are given for Aeq, Peak and Vector Sum. Measured data is also calculated into the HSE's easy to use colour coded points system, and also displays the Exposure Action Value (EAV) and Exposure Limit Value (ELV) times.
It's very important to consider that to defend personal injury claims in a court of law, only measure readings are considered to be evidence in your defence.
This best selling Hand Arm Vibration Meter, the Castle Vexo H, enables you to easily measure the vibration levels of the handheld power tools that your employees use, ensuring that your employees aren't over exposed to vibration levels over and above the Action and Limit Values stated in The Control of Vibration at Work Regulations 2005.
Once a measurement has been taken, this Hand Arm Vibration Meter, the Castle Vexo, will display an extremely accurate vibration magnitude level.
This vibration level can be calculated with the exposure time (actual exposure times can be found with a tool timer) into HSE Exposure Points - the HSE's guideline method of monitoring vibration exposure in the workplace. More information can be found on HSE Exposure Points - click here.
This Hand Arm Vibration Meter was designed to be nothing but easy to use, giving you the ability to measure large numbers of different hand held power tools in a day, whilst ensuring highly accurate results. Recorded Data is logged in the internal memory of the instrument, ready to be downloaded to the included free software, VibDATA Vibration Analysis Software. Data can also be viewed on screen for immediate use.
Built and supplied with long life rechargeable batteries, an additional pack can be purchased to ensure this Hand Arm Vibration Meter can be ready to use whenever you need it. Designed with a rugged and impact resistant body, you can be confident that your new investment will stand the test of time.
This Vexo H Hand Arm Vibration Meter and all it's accessories is supplied in an Attache Carry Case.
