The SoundEar 3 is designed for noise warning and long term monitoring in environments where the appearance of the device is important. This version of the sign is particularly suited to low noise environments, although the range covers almost any application.
Mounted on the wall in rooms and corridors, the SoundEar 3 gives a clear reminder for staff and visitors to keep the noise levels down. This version of the SoundEar is particularly suited to the hospital environment as it can be set to function differently during the day and during the night. For night time the trigger levels can be lower and the lights less obtrusive. See the Displays page for more information.
With the noise levels stored and downloaded to the software, you can carry out long term monitoring to assess the success of a noise control program and to identify the noisy times of day.
Data storage and software are included with the standard SoundEar 3.
Noise in the office, especially in open plan layouts, can be a sensitive issue - the person making the noise is upsetting the work of others, but may not be aware of the issue and be embarrassed by being asked to quieten down. The SoundEar gives a clear indication that the noise levels are high without the subjective nature of the human ear.
The sign is just a reminder that too much noise is being made and with the data logging facility (included) you can monitor the long term noise environment.
The SoundEar 3 gives a clear reminder to everybody that noise levels should be kept down. The SoundEar 3 operates down to 30 dB, making it ideal for such low noise environments.
High noise levels in pubs, clubs and other entertainment venues cause a health risk for staff and the risk of complaints from local residents. The SoundEar 3 can be used to warn when quieter areas get too loud (risk of hearing damage for staff) and can also warn whoever controls the music that the general sound levels are too high, risking complaint.
While the SoundEar 3 meets the requirements of the noise measurement standards, it is not intended as a replacement for a sound level meter. Technically, when fitted with the external microphone option the SoundEar could be used like this, but due to its size, shape and power requirements this just isn't practical.
The SoundEar 3 is ideal for use in conjunction with a suitable noise at work sound level meter. The meter is used to make the full noise risk assessment and the SoundEar is used to warn workers to take action, especially in environments where high noise levels are not always present.
The SoundEar 3 has two outputs available. These outputs can be configured to either:
Each of the outputs can be configured to provide:
The range of dB measurement covered by the DC voltage or 4-20mA loop is set using the software.
