Pulsar Instruments has made assessing and capturing the true noise exposure of workers in a range of settings simple with its innovative noise doseBadge: Model 22.

This revolutionary personal noise dosimeter is a self-contained device also known as PSEM, that has no cables, displays or controls, making it the perfect solution for noise dosimetry, as the unit cannot be tampered easily with during measurements.

Such device can be found in use in settings ranging from construction sites, transportation (highway maintenance) and even entertainment (orchestra) to name a few.

A noise doseBadge communicates with an infra-red Reader Unit – which uses similar technology to a television remote control. The Reader Unit controls the doseBadge in order to program, calibrate, start-stop, download and store measurements.

All key measurement parameters taken can be viewed on the large clear backlit screen of the Reader Unit, which also displays a time history graph of worker’s daily noise exposure.

The Reader Unit contains an integral acoustic calibrator allowing the doseBadge to be calibrated prior to and following each measurement in accordance with international regulations. Worldwide Occupational or Industrial Noise Regulations require the typical daily exposure of an individual worker to be determined. The Pulsar noise doseBadge automatically achieves this by computing the Daily Exposure for European legislation or the Time Weighted Average for US based legislation.

Noise dosimetry measurements are only the beginning. Our effective, user-friendly software package dBLink3 allows users to quickly analyse and transform the raw data into informative report formats, simplifying a potentially complex and time consuming process.

Full ‘Time History’ information allows safety professionals to establish when key noise problems occur during a worker’s day. The additional ‘C’ weighted peak Time History allows users to fully assess risks from impulsive noise in the workplace.

Sarah Brack of Pulsar Instruments said: ‘The doseBadge system is perfect for the Health & Safety manager, who has limited time for noise measurement.  The Pulsar doseBadge can be started at the beginning of a shift and stopped at the end.  Data can be downloaded from the Reader unit as and when required.  It really is that simple’.
