CEL632A Noise at Work Meter with Advanced Data Logging

advanced noise at work meter
CEL632 Sound Level Meter

Applications

The CEL632A has many applications but is primarily intended for the detailed analysis of noise in the workplace.

  • UK and European noise at work regulations
  • OSHA Occupational noise regulations (most common in USA)
  • Canadian occupational noise (both 3dB and 5dB exchange rates)
  • Machinery testing
  • Hearing protector assessments
  • Detailed analysis of noise - time history noise profile

The occupational noise regulations around the world usually specify or recommend the use of an Integrating sound level meter as this removes the potential error when trying to average it by eye.

The CEL632A takes this one step further, offering a detailed Time History store that provides graphs of the sound level against time. The meter can be left in a noisy environment and downloaded later. The graphs clearly show the noisier and quieter times of day, making the planning of a worker's noise exposure possible.

Noise at Work

The European noise at work regulations state that you should use at least a Class 2 Sound Level Meter. The meter should be verified by a suitably equipped laboratory when new and checked at least every two years after that. You also need a Calibrator to check the meter's function before making measurements.

An Integrating meter like the CEL632A provides you with the measurement of the average sound level - Leq. Rather than trying to average the sound level by eye (made more difficult by the logarithmic nature of noise), the meter does the averaging for you. The Leq is then used to calculate the worker's daily noise exposure, or Lep,d.

Hearing Protection Assessment

When the noise levels are particularly high (e.g. greater than 90 dBA) then you should check that the hearing protection provided is adequate. If it does not reduce the noise at the ear to an acceptable level then clearly it is not adequate. The CEL632 measures both the A and C weighted sound level, so you can use the SNR or HML method - for a working example of SNR and HML methods please take a look at our Hearing Protection Calculator.

 

Environmental and Community Noise

As the CEL632A is available as either Class 1 or Class 2 and includes data logging, it is suitable for many environmental noise surveys.

However, for environmental work we would recommend the CEL633A Environmental Sound Level Meter, which includes the statistical parameters (L10, L50, L90, etc.) that are often required. The CEL633A also includes the Time History and automatic timers for longer term environmental noise monitoring.

Noise Source Identification

Unattended noise measurement is convenient but causes problems when the time comes to identify the source of the noise. Was it a a compressor, machine malfunctioning, steam leak, somebody shouting?. The CEL632A can record the audio so that you can listen to the interesting bits, enabling you to make a positive identification of the noise source.
