The SoundEar 3 is the top of the noise warning sign range, adding many useful features to those offered in the SoundEar II.
This version of the SoundEar is ideal for carrying out long term noise checks but also giving an instant and clear warning of high noise levels.
The SoundEar 3 can be set to have different sound level triggers and displays (lit or flashing) depending on the time of day. For example, noise in a hospital is often more important at night, but a flashing light is not so desirable. The sign can be set to light up at a lower sound level at night and not to flash. You could even set it to only show the central red light at night and leave the green and yellow switched off. More information...
You can connect the SoundEar 3 to a computer and use the software that is included to configure it. If you have a number of noise signs to configure then the software can write the settings to a memory stick. When you plug the stick in to each sign it will automatically configure it.
The SoundEar 3 has a large internal memory that stores the sound level every second. When downloaded to a computer this gives a detailed graph of the noise throughout the day. A standard memory stick is the easiest way to transfer the noise measurements from the SoundEar to a computer. More information...
The SoundEar 3 is supplied with a plug-in microphone. It connects at the bottom of the sign and remains out of sight and out of harm's way. However, if you need to mount the microphone away from the sign then you can use a microphone extension cable, which should be ordered separately, order code SE3EXT.
The SoundEar 3 can output the sound level in two different forms, making it suitable for integration with other monitoring and control systems. Using the software supplied you can configure the outputs to be either DC 0 to 10V or current loop 4-20mA. Two outputs are available and can be set to different noise parameters.
