As this meter covers 30 to 130 dB(A) it can be used for many applications, from quiet offices to much more noisy environments. With its auto-ranging feature, it is particularly good for measuring noise that varies from quiet to very loud in a short period of time - a meter with manual range setting cannot do this as you have to stop measuring, change the range and start again.
The NM102 Noise Meter is also very quick and easy to use. If you need to be able to pick the meter up and make a quick measurement, without fiddling with buttons first, then this is likely to be the best choice.
Use the NM102 when you need to:
Always check whether there are any regulations that you need to follow when making the noise measurements. If so, the regulations may give a specification of the meter that you need. If you have any doubts please email us for advice.
If you are measuring noise in line with the European Noise at Work regulations (ie. for hearing protection reasons) then you need to make your assessment using at least a Class 2 Integrating Sound Level Meter. The NM102 Sound Level Meter makes an excellent addition to your noise measurement kit, to keep in the toolbox for making quick checks. However, a true noise survey should be done using a suitable calibrated Integrating sound level meter. For more information please visit our Noise at Work page.
