Whether you are in the city, suburb or at a weekend getaway location, noise is an important factor in determining your quality of life or the success of your business. Many areas have local noise legislation that defines the noise limits that can be produced and experienced during the day or at night. This noise may be generated by vehicle traffic, aircraft, industrial sites, construction projects, entertainment events, or many other activities.
Industrial noise generated from plants, mills, refineries, shipping docks, utilities, and more, impact the quality of the surrounding community. By controlling and monitoring this noise a community and industry can establish a working relationship that will benefit all. An effective noise monitoring program will allow an industrial site to understand the noise sources and time periods that are causing concerns and then develop a plan for mitigation.
The Trojan noise nuisance recorder is designed specifically for noise nuisance complaints and neighbour noise monitoring. The Trojan was designed for use by EHO’s and housing associations so we have included all of the functions and features that are essential and removed anything that makes life complicated.
Before you can determine what design changes are appropriate to reduce the noise emitted by a product, you need to be able to characterise it in terms of: Spectral content: The location of the dominant sources. The relative importance of dominant sources. Noise Source Identification employs a number of tools to perform such a characterisation.
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,...
Manufacturers of electroacoustic equipment such as loudspeakers, microphones, telephones, headsets, hearing aids, hydrophones, etc., have, for many years, successfully developed new innovative acoustical designs and introduced these into the market in the form of high-quality products.
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.
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.
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...
Traffic noise impacts millions of people at home and at work. Traffic noise can impact your ability to work, learn rest, play, relax, and sleep. This form of noise can also lead to mental and physical health concerns. The noise is dependent upon such issues as: Traffic volume. Traffic Speed. Vehicle Content. Road Surface. Surrounding Area.
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.
Traditional Field Pass-by measurements are still the only way to certify a vehicle for exterior noise emission during operation, but Indoor Pass-by provides an extremely powerful and repeatable method of troubleshooting exterior vehicle noise in the controlled environment ofan anechoic chamber.
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.
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.
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.
Vibration testing is is used for aerospace and defence testing, ground transportation, transport simulation, package testing, altitude simulation and more. Our comprehensive range of LDS electrodynamic shakers are designed for vibration testing of devices of any size - from a semiconductor component to a complete satellite system, to see how it will stand up to real-world conditions. With an LDS vibration test system your shaker, power amplifier, vibration controller and even environmental chamber are not only...
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.
Many analytical tools used for research and development focus on making single measurements, and are designed accordingly. However, in many industries, test programs are performed that involve large numbers of repeated tests on test objects in various configurations or with various modifications. This is repetitive testing. The tests done are generally standardised, and often performed in a dedicated test area.
Air traffic is the source of several forms of disturbance to the surrounding area, including, in particular, noise pollution. Local residents in the vicinity of an airport are the most severely affected and are very conscious of the aircrafts` flight paths and the impact on their day-to-day living conditions.
