This handheld sound level meter is very easy to use, just switch it on, set the range and start measuring. The wide 30-130dB range (120dB is pain threshold!) makes it useful for many situations including noise pollution monitoring, home theatre setup, health and safety compliance, vehicle noise testing etc.
In particular it meets the LTSA requirements for their 'Noise Quick Check'. It comes in a foam lined plastic case with compartments for the windscreen sponge and spare batteries.
It can log readings at various intervals to record a maximum of 4700 readings. The readings can be viewed on the meter or downloaded and analysed on a Windows PC with the included software. It can also be connected to your computer for ongoing real-time measurement and logging.
The meter is supplied ready calibrated and can be re-calibrated in future if necessary.
