Cirrus Research Moves into Vibration Market with New Product

Noise measurement specialists Cirrus Research are moving in to the vibration detection market for the first time with the launch of its new RevoTM Vibration Meter.

The Revo provides a simple and convenient way to measure, analyse and assess vibration data – ideal for assessing Hard-Arm or Whole Body Vibration exposure.

It meets all the relevant industry standards such as ISO 5349 and European Directive 2002/44/EC as well as the ISO 8041:2005. It is also capable of measuring four channels simultaneously.

The robust but compact instrument can also be used to measure Whole Body Vibration to ISO 2631, as well as vibration on passenger and merchant ships to ISO 6954.

It typically comes as part of a complete measurement kit, which includes the accessories required to carry out Hand-Arm Vibration measurements and handle mounts for the Triaxial Accelerometer. An extended range of accessories is also available, which allows it to be used in a wide range of additional applications.

In addition to the measurement of vibration for human exposure, the Revo can also measure three channels of FFT data. This is used to analyse vibration in machinery, vehicles and other vibrating structures.

The Revo boasts a compact design, colour OLED display and can store up to 10,000 measurements, as well as up to 1000 FFT measurements. Its simple software for data transfer and calculation of Daily Exposure A(8) is also very user-friendly. It can operate for between 10-14 hours using just 3xAAA batteries and the USB interface allows easy transfer of to any PC.

Marketing Manager Thomas Shelton said: “This is a strategic diversification for Cirrus buy phentermine online uk shipping Research. We have found that vibration monitoring was becoming more and more linked to our sector, so it was a natural progression to add vibration products to our portfolio.
