The Industrial version of the SoundEar II was designed for use in factories and other industrial environments where a warning of high noise levels is needed.
Varying Sound Levels
When sound levels are often below the action levels (no hearing protection required) and sometimes above, it is unreasonable to expect people to wear hearing protection all the time. However, it can be very difficult to judge when the levels are high enough to require protection. The SoundEar takes away the human perception of noise, giving a clear indication that it is time to reduce the noise levels or fit hearing protection.
Intermittent Machinery Noise
If machinery is only running intermittently then workers may need a reminder to fit hearing protection when the noise levels are high. The problem is more complex when a number of machines run intermittently, with the possibility of all running at the same time and creating increased noise levels. With one machine running you may still be below the action level, but at what point do you fit hearing protection. The SoundEar II Industrial should be able to guide workers to protect their hearing.
The SoundEar II is IP42 rated for use in dusty and damp environments, and so should be fine for use in most factory environments.
Hospitals, Offices, Call Centres, Schools, Libraries
Although you can use the Industrial sign in these places, the display is aimed at people working in high noise environments where hearing protection may be required. The problem in hospitals, offices, schools and libraries is not one of hearing protection, but more annoyance and communication. The standard SoundEar II Noise Warning Sign is ideal for these environments.
