The soundBadge personal noise dosimeter (PND) and Sound Level Meter (SLM) system is the first wearable noise dosimeter to combine a high-quality integrating averaging SLM that exceeds the IEC-61672 Class-2 standard with a wearable personal noise dosimeter that meets all the requirements of IEC-61252. The device has onboard memory and simultaneously records: Dose, A-weighted level and either C or Z-weighted level every 1/4 second. A and C/Z can be recorded either with fast (1s) or slow (1/8s) time constants.
soundBadge accurately measures from 55 dB SPL to 140 dB SPL and from 20Hz to 20kHz with the in-built microphone. A unique sub-measurement + hold function allows making a separate average measurement for Dose, A, C/Z, and Cpk without disturbing a larger ongoing measurement.
The device is powered by a single rechargeable lithium-ion battery that can last 16 hours and is recharged in 3 hours via USB. It can be password protected with a 4 digit code to prevent measurement tampering.
The soundViewerTM PC software presents the soundBadge data files graphically, allowing you to re-analysis and providing you with customizable reporting templates. Zooming on particular areas and re-calculating doses for different time periods is easy and producing the reports is fast and easy too. In addition data can be exported to standard spreadsheets for further analysis.
Connect your soundBadge to your PC and select file open. Your measurement is displayed showing:
- Dose calculations
- Peak levels – including peak counter
- Time history data – to give a full overview of the measurement
- Mechanical shock indicator – where the soundBadge has been knocked
