WBV Emission Values

KarLA offers here measured emission values ​​for whole-body vibration under the test conditions specified. These emission values can be used when comparing several machines to decide about the lowest level of vibration before buying. Since the emission values ​ normally are not determined under typical conditions of use, they can’t be used for the risk assessment.

You can better select the machine using the option fields and select the ranking of the result by clicking on one of the triangles in the head of the columns. If you are clicking on the Details button you will see all information available about the measurement and the machine.

If you are marking a machine in the first column you will see the average of the emission values for the selected machines below the table.

Only those machine groups and categories are listed, for which datasets are available.
