Pulsar Instruments Plc April 2018 – Already well-known worldwide for their reliable and robust noise measurement products, Pulsar Instruments is extending their current health and safety focused product ranges to include a hand arm vibration meter – the Pulsar  vB.

Measuring individuals’ exposure to vibration from the use of power tools and machinery is becoming even more important in the workplace. Workers exposed to excess vibration can end up with significant conditions related to Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS) including painful and disabling disorders of the blood vessels, nerves and joints such as Vibration White Finger and vibration related Carpel Tunnel Syndrome (CTS).

The Control of Vibration at Work Regulations 2005 requires that employers make sure that risks to employees from vibration are assessed and controlled. With this is mind we believe that the Pulsar vB is the only vibration meter you’ll need, it’s fully compliant with the Regulations, and it will help you accurately measure the vibration levels of your tools, and the exposure levels to your employees.

The Pulsar vB:

  1. Easy to use: just attach it securely to your tools, switch on and press record;
  2. Essential measurements: it measures all the essential parameters you need for HAVS risk assessments; and,
  3. Effortless reporting: comes with Pulsar vB Plus software for effortless analysis and reporting too.
