2260 Investigator Sound Level Meter bows out gracefully

The last Sound Level Meter Type 2260 has left the Brüel & Kjær production line.

February 2011 -- After almost 17 years of faithful service that saw it travel into space and appear on the BBC, the distinctively shaped 2260 ‘Investigator’ has finally come to the end of its natural life after stocks of its custom-built membrane key pad were allowed to run out, leaving it to be superseded by Sound Level Meter Type 2270.

After being introduced in May 1994, 2260 Investigator went on to sell over 7000 units worldwide, thanks to its revolutionary use of new technology. With a dedicated Digital Signal Processor and an LCD screen, 2260 Investigator set the bar high, providing powerful real-time analysis in a sleek, hand-held package. Thanks to many different software modules, 2260 Investigator was the first multi-tool from Brüel & Kjær, allowing engineers to effectively carry around a full toolkit in one unit.

A full range of accessories, application modules and repair services will continue to be available for 2260 Investigator into the future. For the full story, see the next issue of Waves magazine, out 8 March.
