Nova 45 and 46: Our latest sound level meters with octave band analyser
The Nova 45 (Class 1) & 46 (Class 2) are the premium models within the groundbreaking Nova range of precision sound meters.
Our latest sound level meter with octave band analyser enables you to measure every parameter simultaneously, making it virtually impossible to make a mistake.
Suitable for a vast range of applications including occupational, industrial, environmental and entertainment noise monitoring, these precision sound meters can easily be programmed to meet most global noise regulations.
When designing this range, our engineers demanded that we did not compromise on innovation, durability, ease of use or quality. The robust metal case, LEMO connector and unrivalled battery power are just some of the features that show the Nova is the toughest instrument on the market.
This sound level meter with octave band analyser provides real time 1:1 octave band analysis, data logging, TWA/dose and statistical Ln values as standard, making it superior for both industrial and environmental noise measurement.
The manual audio record feature is ideal for nuisance noise measurement, as not only can you measure the noise levels; you can record the noise source, too. Audio Note enables you to record important voice notes that are relevant to a specific measurement, eliminating the need to carry around clipboards and pens.
As well as all the features mentioned above, these precision sound meters can also save you time and effort with the repeat and single timers. Once programmed, the instruments can be left to run a timed single measurement consisting of multiple repeated measurements.
The AnalyzerPlus software is intuitive and exceptionally easy to use, providing a comprehensive noise report within three clicks of a mouse. A database of hearing protection enables the user to select the correct level of PPE, eliminating the dangers of either over- or under-protecting workers.

The Noise Assessment Consultant:
The noise levels in TV studios have to be low and thus when it comes to acoustic measurements of plant above them then speed is of the essence so that the show can go on. Graham Ellicott of Dakat recently had to carry out a number of measurements in a ductwork system above a TV studio that supplies programmes for channels that are available via BSkyB. The noise measurements required the removal of hatches in the ductwork and this process plus the extra noise generated by their opening could have been difficult to deal with had it not been for the Pulsar Nova 45 which can measure many different functions simultaneously. A small ‘window' of time (approximately 10 mins between takes) was all that was available for the whole measurement process and the Nova 45 easily took this in its stride. Graham commented "In the past, I've used other meters that would have required at least 30 minutes for all of the measurements but because of the Nova 45's ability to measure simultaneously the whole process was completed within the 10 minute window thus saving me and the client time while allowing the show to go on!"
The Concert Venue:
Staff at First Direct Arena have benefited from technical support and advice from the team at Pulsar since they received their first Nova Model 45 sound level meter ensuring that their brand new noise measurement kit was fully maximised. Sarah Brack, MD for Pulsar Instruments, said: “We are delighted that such a fantastic new venue in our region made the Pulsar Nova Model 45 their first choice when it came to invest in a noise measurement kit. We have enjoyed helping John and his team become familiar with the product and are proud that our sound level meters are associated with such a prestigious venue and such big names in the music industry.”
John Webster, Operations Director at First Direct Arena says: “The ability to comply with Noise at Work Regulations is an essential requirement for a venue such as ours. From the start, we wanted to invest in a trusted brand and a meter that would offer us the right specification and the latest technology to help us achieve compliance. We chose the Nova sound meter from local company Pulsar Instruments plc which meets all our key requirements and we have been delighted with its performance”
