  • Pulsar noise testing equipment for workplace sector

    Workplace noise monitoring is an interesting subject that can appear complex, but it is always worth remembering what you are trying to achieve. This can be summarised as: ““Minimising or avoiding the risk of noise-induced hearing loss in the workplace to comply with local, noise-based, legislation”” Such legislation is usually based on a European Directive that is then modified to suit the needs of each particular country. For example, in the United Kingdom, the ‘The Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005’ are based on the European Union Directive 2003/10/EC; usually called “The physical agents (noise)” directive and expanded upon by the Health & Safety Executive.

    Sound level meters & Noise dosimeters for Vehicle noise measurements industry

    The noise from vehicles such as cars, buses and trucks is wide spread with many people being affected by these noise sources in their daily lives. All modern vehicles will be designed to meet strict safety and emissions standards as well as noise output levels. All vehicles sold in the EU must comply with a range of noise directives to ensure that they meet these specified noise levels when they are sold and many countries enforce regular checks over the life of the vehicle. Motor Sport noise is a often a source of enjoyment for those taking part and for spectators. The impact of motorsport activities on the surrounding environment is also of major concern to many people who live near to venues as well as to those operating the circuits, tracks and venues.

  • Noise and vibration monitoring for city monitoring

    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.

    Sound instrumentation for vibration

    Vibration is simply defined as the variation of an object about a fixed position. To properly define and quantify the physical characteristics of vibration, however, is much more complex - account must be taken of the direction, frequency and magnitude of vibration. Then, what properties should be measured? Is it appropriate to measure the displacement of the vibrating object as a measure of its amplitude, or should we instead measure velocity, or acceleration? What are the conventions for measuring direction, and is it really important?

  • Environmental Noise Monitoring

    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-determined times or automatically triggered when pre-determined levels are exceeded. Applications: Unattended noise monitoring stations (mobile or fixed installations) Annoyance assessment of noise according to ISO 1996-2 Construction noise measurements meeting the Section 61 notice (UK) Urban noise monitoring and noise mapping according to directive 2002/49/EC Verifying boundary noise level emission Advantages Handheld and compact design for field applications and stand-alone oper

    Sound level meters & Noise dosimeters for Environmental noise monitoring industry

    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 experts fear will lead to adverse health effects. An additional 170 million citizens are now living in so-called "grey areas" where the noise levels cause serious annoyance during the daytime.
