The dBadge2 Noise Dosemeter mounts on the worker's shoulder, measuring the noise levels throughout the working day. It measures all the parameters needed by the noise at work regulations throughout Europe, North America and the rest of the world. Everything is measured, so no risk of choosing the wrong parameters before starting the survey.
This version of the dBadge2 noise dosemeter includes real-time octave band filters, splitting the spectrum into the nine standard bands to provide frequency analysis. This is useful if you need to carry out a more detailed assessment of hearing protectors using the octave band method, especially for very high noise levels or for tonal noise.
The dBadge 2 PRO 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 dosemeter even provides you with the calculated noise exposure level (LEP,d or LEX,8hr for Europe and TWA for North America and some other regions).
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 you can use the more detailed Octave Band method.
