Low frequency noise analysis using XL2 - Monitoring and Testing - Environmental Monitoring

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 cumulative noise energy to which an individual is exposed over time. Exposure to low-frequency noise over extended periods can lead to a range of health problems including cardio vascular disease, insomnia and depression. The sources of low frequency noise can often be attributed to electricity sub stations, chiller plants and incinerators with continuous noise at frequencies below 200 Hz.
