The CEL633B Sound Level Meter is for environmental noise measurement. This model has Octave Band filters, making it suitable for other specialist applications too.
The CEL633B sound level meter is available as Type 2 (CEL633B2), but most environmental noise monitoring applications demand the more accurate Type 1 (CEL633B1) specification. This meter also has everything needed for occupational noise measurement in line with the OSHA, MSHA, ACGIH and EU regulations, making it ideal for anybody involved in both environmental (outside the factory) and occupational (inside the factory) noise.
If the meter is to be left unattended in poor weather conditions then the Outdoor Kit should be used to offer protection against the elements. The Outdoor Kit also includes a rechargeable battery pack for longer term monitoring.
The Type 1 Noise Measurement Kit (CEL633B1-K) is supplied in a tough Peli Case with custom foam to protect the meter, calibrator and accessories. More details...
The CEL633B has a very wide span, covering 20 to 140dB in a single range. This is particularly important when monitoring in an environment with generally low noise levels and occasionally high ones - for example when cars pass. The most useful parameter when measuring environmental and community noise is the Leq, the average sound level. The meter measures the periodic Leq and also includes five Ln values for statistical analysis of the noise.
The meter is fitted with real-time Octave Band Filter, which are sometimes needed for noise sources that may be tonal or for assessing hearing protector performance. As well as measuring the Leq and Lmax in each band, the CEL633B meter also measures the statistical parameters, Ln, in each of the Octave bands.
The CEL633B comes complete with data logging capability with measurements stored in the meter's large internal memory.
When connected to a Windows computer using the free CasellaDrive software, the meter acts like a memory stick (shows as a removable drive) so the measurements can be loaded into a spreadsheet or moved to your hard drive for long term storage. There is no need to buy special software.
Due to the large amount of data and the potential complexity of the measurements, we would recommend the use of the Insight software. It simplifies the process of downloading the measurements and stores them in a database, managed by person, place or process criteria. To get the Insight software for the CEL633B include item ISC020 with your order.
Most environmental noise surveys demand the use of a Type 1 Sound Level Meter that can make repeating measurements, such as the 5 minute LAeq and L90 (background noise). If you have applications that need Octave Band measurements we recommend the CEL633B1 Type 1 Sound Level Meter for most situations.
If you don't need Octave Bands then take a look at the CEL633A1 Environmental Sound Level Meter.
Most applications demand the use of a Calibrator to check the function of the meter, so we recommend the CEL120/1 Calibrator.
Finally, we also recommend the Insight software to ease download and processing. If unsure, Insight can be easily added at a later date.
