Using It


The NM102 is a low cost noise meter for basic surveys and sound level checks. It has many features, such as Fast and Slow time response, A and C frequency weighting and Max/Min measurements.

The backlight makes it ideal for use in low-light environments.

Limitations of Use

While the NM102 is an accurate and full-featured sound level meter, it is not provided with a traceable calibration certificate and so is not suitable for measurements to be used for legal purposes.

Please see the Applications tab for more information.

  • Offices, hospitals, libraries
