Sound & Noise Level Meters

We offer a range of noise level meters that are being popularly used by everyone who need to know the decibel levels of a sound source. The voice level meter, which comprises a microphone, a preamplifier, signal processing, and a display, provides noise exposure parameters to help prevent the hearing hazards. Our digital sound level meters meet IEC651 (Type 2), IEC 61672-1 type 2, ANSI S1.4 Type 2 with ±1.5dB, ±3.5dB@1kHz accuracy.

The first step in reducing potentially damaging noise from a source is to measure it. You will have to find a way to measure the noise in the environment where you live, work, or do business. A sound level meter, otherwise known as a noise decibel meter, can help you accomplish this. This instrument is used to measure noise levels in the environment, so you can take steps to reduce it. This hand-held decibel meter is used for measuring sound from environmental noise, industries/factories, road and rail traffic, construction work, and residential and commercial buildings.

Know More About Triplett Sound Level Meter

What is Sound Level Meter?

Sound Level Alert displays sound level readings on an extra large LCD ideal for viewing from a distance. Sound level is displayed in db (decibels) and also represented by bright, color-coded status LEDs. The user can program a sound level limit that when exceeded will change the LEDs from green to flashing red and display an ‘OVER’ message.

How are Sound Level Alerts used?

The Sound Level Alert can be placed in auditoriums, hospital wards, class rooms, and other school areas. When the noise level reaches a predetermined alarm level, the alert LEDs will warn the occupants. The relay output permits the user to connect an external audio or visual device for more dramatic, customized alerts.

What is a Sound Level Datalogger?

Datalogging Sound Level meter measures, displays, and stores sound level measurement data. Up to 20,000 readings can be stored in the meter, each with the date and time stamp. Readings can be recalled on the meter’s display or they can by downloaded to a PC. Included software permits the user to view, graph, print, and export data to a spreadsheet.

How Does a Noise Meter Work

Noise level meter is a device that measures the intensity of the sound. It is used by people who work in places where noise control is a requirement. Have you ever had a problem with the noise level in your home or your place of work? Are you looking for an effective way to get rid of this problem? If yes, then this sound measuring device can provide you with a solution to these problems.

The noise level meter works by picking up vibrations from sound and converts them into electrical signals. The speed of electrical pulses vary according to loudness of the sound. In other words, the higher the volume of sound, the larger number of pulses per second. A dial then converts these electrical signals into decibels, and acoustic measurement values are shown on the display of the sound meter.

What is the Range of Sound Level Meter?

Sound dB meter can measure the decibel level in any environment and help you to make the proper adjustments to control the sound. However, to get the right measurements from sound level meter, it is very important that you know the ideal range of sound level meter. To be more specific, sound decibel meter generally measures over a range of about 30 to 130 dB.

What is an Acceptable dB Noise Level?

The term dB noise level is a measurement of the intensity of a sound, in terms of decibels. It is often used when determining whether a sound is too loud to cause hearing loss. The maximum acceptable dB noise level is usually determined by an employer or other person in authority who determine the policies for the workplace.

A noise level of 60 dB is widely accepted as the maximum background sound produced in a business environment. In general, it is recommended that the average noise level in an office should be around 50 dB.

Sound levels of 70 dB or less are generally considered safe. Any sound that is at or above 85 dBA has a higher chance of damaging your hearing over time.
