The XL2 Sound Level Meter provides the dedicated solution for monitoring environmental noise in industry and communities. It measures levels and detailed spectral information in parallel and stores the data on an SD card for post-processing and reporting. A linear audio file (wav-file) may be recorded for detailed simultaneous analysis.
The type approved class 1 sound level meter offers a flexible handheld instrument with accurate and reliable measurements. Data recording can be scheduled to occur at pre-determine...
Environmental noise is a major issue in most countries, especially in areas of high population, and the sources of noise and their adverse effects on our well-being are varied. In terms of assessing the impact of these issues, we need to be able to make suitable noise measurements, or in some cases monitor the noise levels for longer periods.
Environmental noise is unwanted sound and vibration coming from a plethora of sources, among them industrial plants, road and rail traffic, construction work, and aircraft. Add to these sports events, shooting ranges, leisure parks, etc, and you have noise from many different sources, each with different characteristics and posing specific problems for the professionals who have to assess them. The way the problems are dealt with differs immensely from country to country and is very much dependent on culture,...
As of April 2008 the entertainment industry is now expected to comply with ‘The Control of Noise at Work Regulations’. Owners and venue operators are now legally obliged to ensure their workforce is protected from excessive noise levels. To help you understand the key issues, Pulsar Instruments Plc have produced a Free Information Pack detailing the new regulations and offering simple advice and answers to the most commonly asked questions.
State of the art noise monitoring systems; Modern noise monitoring systems offer a wide range of advanced features and come with software that can analyze and structure long term measurements data efficiently. A complete noise monitoring system consists of one or more noise monitoring terminals, a noise server and work stations for presentation, post processing and reporting.
Acoustic Associates have been involved on numerous large scale projects, in the quarrying, mining, power generation and waste management sectors where the Secretary of State required full Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) to be able to properly assess and balance the suitability and sustainability of large scale developments. Acoustic Associates can provide the noise chapters for these EIA’s and are happy to work in interdisciplinary teams to provide co-ordinated and seamless reports. Acoustic Associates has...
Noise has become the primary source of environmental disturbance. In 2002, the European Union took decisive action in the form of directive 2002/49/CE relating to the assessment and management of environmental noise. Through the use of strategic noise mapping, every urban community must implement an action plan to combat noise pollution. The monitoring of noise levels in urban environments is therefore an essential factor.
Industrial sites are subject to regulations that limit sound and vibration levels at their perimeter and with regard to third parties. The taking of measurements at intervals remains one of the most frequently used methods of evaluating the noise and vibration levels of such sites.
Environmental Noise is one of the fastest growing areas of noise monitoring, mapping and control. The EU has introduced a number of Directives aimed at increasing the level of information about Environmental Noise across the EU. In 1996, data from the EU Green Paper on Future Noise Policy estimated that around 20% of the EU`s population, or close to 80 million people, suffer from noise levels that experts consider to be unacceptable. Most of these people become annoyed and suffer from sleep deprivation, which...
The Data Explorer PC software for the XL2 Sound Level Meter now includes a series of professional tools for detailed analysis of low-frequency noise (LFN). The graphical representation of time varying frequency components offers an efficient process for identifying the presence and level of LFN. Also the associated high quality audio recording supports further correlation with the objective measurement data.
The new features are particularly useful in the calculation of immission levels which is defined as the...
Neighbour Noise, Environmental Noise & Community Noise. Noise nuisance is a growing issue that continues to hit the headlines. Whether it`s noisy neighbours, barking dogs or music events, the need to measure noise nuisance is rapidly increasing.
Cirrus Environmental can supply a range of noise measurement options for construction and demolition noise applications. These range from handheld sound level meters for taking noise measurements through semi-permanent noise monitors to permanently installed noise monitoring systems, all designed to be fully weather protected for reliable long term operation.
For Industrial Noise Monitoring applications, Cirrus Environmental can supply a range portable, semi-permanent or permanent noise monitors as well as the MK:427 NoiseSensor for integration into existing data logging systems.
The management of noise from mining operations is recognized as a fundamental responsibility of the mining industry. Implementing a noise management system that includes noise surveys, day and night noise mitigation, and some level of noise monitoring is a primary function that is required to meet environmental impact standards in most locations.
noise3D enables commercial and industrial users to assess noise levels with the latest available propagation programs, without having to purchase expensive software. Instead, the 3D modeling software Trimble Navigation SketchUp or Google Earth (Pro) are used as interface. You can use your own planning documents, such as scanned maps for digitization, or transfer data from Google Earth for a simpler option.
A range of noise measurement instruments, all fully weather protected for reliable long term operation, that are ideal for transport noise measurements. Whether it’s for short term handheld measurements or longer term noise monitoring applications, Cirrus Environmental can offer a solution.
Environmental noise monitors that connect directly to process measurement and control systems. Many industrial plants have a variety of process sensors strategically placed around their site so that safety, environmental impact and efficiency can be monitored and managed, in real time, from one or more control rooms.
Airport noise monitoring often requires a combination of short term measurements to gather information along with long term measurements to maintain compliance with agreed noise levels. Cirrus Environmental has a range of noise measurement instruments that have been purpose designed for these tasks along with the NoiseHub software package.
Cirrus Environmental has been providing noise monitoring systems for motorsport noise measurement and control for a number of years and has supplied systems to some of the leading circuits around the world. Combining noise monitors with the NoiseHub software, we can provide a tailored package to meet your needs.
Wind farms must be developed in such a way that they become a part of the environmental lanscape. To this end, public authorities use standards and regulations to impose limits on the noise levels generated by such installations.
