Personal noise dosemeter


Personal noise dosemetry at its best with the Pulsar Noise Dosemeter system: ideal for occupational noise at work and industrial hygiene noise measurements. The revolutionary personal noise dosemeter is a self-contained noise measurement device which accurately and simply assesses and captures the true noise exposure of workers.

This robust instrument has no cables, displays or controls, making it the perfect solution for personal noise measurement for people on the move, shift workers, lone workers and people working in remote areas.

The Pulsar Noise Dosemeter system simply and accurately assesses and captures the true noise exposure of workers.

The revolutionary personal noise dosemeter is a self-contained noise measurement device, also known as PSEM, that has no cables, displays or controls, making it the perfect solution for noise dosemetry, because units cannot be tampered with easily or damaged during measurements.

Pulsar Noise Dosemeter Reader Unit communicates with an infra-red Reader Unit – similar technology to a television remote control. The Reader Unit controls the noise dosimeter for programming, calibration, start-stopping, downloading and storing measurements.

All key measurement parameters can be viewed on the large clear backlit screen of the Reader Unit, which also displays a time history graph of worker's daily noise exposure.

The Reader Unit contains an integral acoustic calibrator allowing the noise dosemeter to be calibrated prior to and following each measurement in accordance with international regulations. Worldwide occupational and industrial noise regulations often require the typical daily exposure of an individual worker to be determined. The Pulsar Noise Dosemeter automatically achieves this by computing the Daily Exposure for European legislation or the Time Weighted Average for US based legislation.

Personal noise dosemetry measurements are only the beginning. Our effective, user-friendly software packages dBLink3 and AnalyzerPlus allows users to quickly analyse and transform the raw data into informative report formats, simplifying a potentially complex and time consuming process.

Full ‘Time History’ information allows you to determine when key noise problems occur during a worker's day. All the data essential to meet compliance with occupational noise regulations is obtained at the touch of a button and include: LAeq, LEP,d, % Dose and TWA. The additional ‘C’ weighted peak Time History allows you to fully assess risks from impulsive noise in the workplace.

Pulsar Noise Dosemeter Software

The Pulsar Noise Dosemeter is supplied as standard with the valuable dBLink3 software or our easy to use AnalyzerPlus program. To assist new users, a step by step wizard reassuringly guides you throughout the set-up and download procedures, and allows measurement data to be viewed, analysed and printed.

Three pre-formatted report templates are provided to present your measurement data. These reports can be printed or exported into a number of formats including Word, Excel and PDF.

The fact that the Pulsar dBLink3 and the AnalyzerPlus have no licensing restrictions means the user is able to install the software onto multiple computers and laptops eliminating hidden costs and optimising user flexibility.

dBLink3 also supports previous versions of the Pulsar Noise Dosimeter and Reader Units.

Why not combine the Pulsar Noise Dosimeter system with a Sound Level Meter and Acoustic Calibrator?

The hard kit case supplied for your Pulsar Noise Dosimeter system has space for 5 individual noise dosimeters along with all of the standard accessories.

Please note, the Pulsar Noise Dosimeter system kit allows enough space for any combination of our Sound Level Meters such as a Pulsar Nova or Quantifier for example, an Acoustic Calibrator and a windshield. This allows the dosimeter kit to be transformed and adapted into a Safety Professional kit to provide you with a complete noise monitoring solution.

We purchased a Pulsar doseBadge and supporting instrumentation last year along with a familiarisation Noise Awareness training day. The equipment is certainly robust, unobtrusive and ‘user friendly' and provides a real time analysis of workplace noise. The noise measuring equipment and service furnished by Pulsar Instruments plc has proved to be first class and I would provide an unequivocal recommendation to anyone considering the introduction of this noise management hardware/software. Some of the credit for the Company award of OHSAS 18001 accreditation last year must be directed at Pulsar due to the favourable observations made by the external auditor on the management of noise at work. Thank you for your impartial guidance and advice and for providing a cost effective system which proves beyond any doubt that we can defend any allegations of poor workplace noise management.

Pulsar Model 22 noise dosebadge system is an all singing, all dancing system that is genuinely robust and does exactly as promised. I am happy to endorse this product for any environment where one would allow people to work.
English National Opera
The subject of the long term effects of noise for performing arts professionals has always been sensitive and difficult to assess. At English National Opera, we have been very aware of this situation and in 2004 decided we needed arobust, reliable and unobtrusive system that would allow us to gain a greater understanding of the typical personal noise exposure levels received by members of our orchestra, chorus, stage performers, technicians and other staff. Given that the music and performance dynamics change from production to production, we needed to incorporate these differences into our noise control plan. We invested in the Pulsar Instruments Plc Model 22 doseBadge system that consists of small, robust and lightweight dosimetry units that attach comfortably to the shoulder of the employee being monitored. After each session this information is then communicated to the reader unit where we can easily view the essential measurement information. We then have the option of downloading each group of measurements to a computer for further analysis and reporting. The time histories of the noise levels are very useful for determining when the main exposure levels occur and which members of staff are most affected. This method of capturing data has provided us with valuable information enabling us to assess and then investigate ways of minimising the risks from noise exposure. When routine verification of the equipment is required we simply contact Pulsar Instruments to arrange the prompt service and recalibration our doseBadge system.
