The dBadge2 Noise Dosimeter mounts on the worker's shoulder, measuring the noise levels throughout the working day. It measures all the parameters needed by the occupational noise regulations throughout North America, Europe, and the rest of the world. Everything is measured, so no risk of choosing the wrong parameters before starting the survey.
The dBadge 2 PLUS model has the ability to record the audio. This is useful for note taking before starting the measurements (employee name, machinery in use). It can also be set to record when the noise exceeds a preset sound level, enabling you to listen and identify the cause.
You can take the readings directly from the display. Everything you need to satisfy the regulations is there. For more detail it is usually better to download to a computer using the software that is included. The dosimeter even provides you with the calculated noise exposure level (TWA for North America and some other regions, LEP,d or LEX,8hr for Europe).
The dBadge2 includes both "A" and "C" weighted Leq measurements. These can be used to assess the suitability of hearing protectors using the standard HML method. This method is adequate to satisfy the regulations. If you want more detail then choose the dBadge2 PRO and use the Octave Band method.
