Vib@Work Seat (formerly “Evec”) is a dosimeter for measuring vibrations transmitted to the whole body. It allows for the measurement of the vibration levels experienced by seated operators in accordance with European Directive 2002/44/EC. The sensor is a semi-rigid interface to be placed on the driver’s seat.
|Measurement||Whole Body Vibration|
|Available Outside the UK?||Yes|
This innovative measurement system allows for vibration measurements to be taken of whole-body vibration exposure according to ISO 2631. Its autonomous sensors that do not need to be wired during measurements and automated artefact detection provide for a user-friendly implementation and use (can be used by non-experts).
Stored data is downloaded from the sensor(s) at the end of the working period to a smartphone or a PC using a Bluetooth connection.
The software allows for the automatic computation and display of workers’ exposure to whole-body vibrations and indicates how such exposure compares with the limit and action values defined in the vibration Directive.
The Vib@Work system is suitable for a very great number of applications. Every sedentary occupation involving the protection of working humans from undesired vibration requires the use of the Vib@Work system. The system provides the ideal solution for measuring whole-body-vibration, whether relating to fork-lift truck drivers, long-haul truck drivers or horseback riders.
Mobility without limits evec seat pads are wireless devices that communicate through Bluetooth® serial connections. The accompanying software to operate the evec seat pad can be installed on any computer device running Windows XP/Vista or Windows Mobile 5 equipped with a Bluetooth interface. Suitable computer devices are PCs, Notebooks, PDAs, mobile/ cell phones with suitable input peripherals and other mobile devices complying with the above specifications. To install evec software on a Windows Mobile 5 mobile device, both a connection with a Windows XP/Vista PC or Notebook and an operational recent release of Microsoft ActiveSync are needed.
