There's a series of things we do before sending an instrument out to a customer for rental. One item in our checklist is to clear any existing test data from the device. Earlier today, I was preparing a Svantek SV-106 vibration meter to ship, and when I tried to clear the data, I got a file system error. How did I solve the problem?
One of the things I love about my job is that I'm always learning about our rental instruments and how they're used in testing and reporting. Last week, a rental customer called me about some individual worker reports he was reviewing from the personal noise dosimeters he'd rented from us.
TSI PortaCount is giving me a “Low Particles” error message. What do I do? This question comes up fairly often with PortaCount users.
During our follow-up calls with rental customers, we learn a lot about what's happening in their businesses. Our consultant customers are always looking to be great at what they do, to deliver what their customers need.
Millions of workers each year are exposed to levels of sound and noise in the workplace that can cause hearing loss. Companies are using noise dosimeters and sound level meters to help establish their corporate hearing protection program standards, and determine where within their plants workers need to be wearing hearing protection equipment.
