NoisePen Dosemeter - Personal Sound Exposure Meter
Capture, record and calculate workers' noise exposure easily for over 30 hours with our innovative NoisePen Dosemeter* - a Personal Sound Exposure Meter (PSEM) for monitoring exposure to Noise at Work.
Easy to use, no cables, and tamper proof
No additional reader or charger needed
Capture, record and calculate noise exposure data for over 30 hours
Schedule measurements for up to 28 days in advance
Meets IEC 61252:1993 and ANSI S1.25:1991 standards
Takes accurate measurements over a large dynamic range 70-140dB(A)
Ideal for shift workers, lone workers and those working in confined spaces
The NoisePen Personal Sound Exposure Meter has no cables, displays or controls, and needs no separate charger or reader unit, making it simple to use and the perfect solution for monitoring Noise at Work over a whole working day or week especially for shift workers, lone workers, confined-space workers and people working in remote areas. The NoisePen noise dosemeter is fully compliant with noise at work health and safety measurement standards around the world.
This great value, self-contained personal noise dosemeter can capture, record and calculate noise exposure data for a period of time over 30 hours. The NoisePen measures all the noise parameters you need for legally compliant occupational noise monitoring. This PSEM is a self-contained noise monitor ideally suited for workers ‘on the go’; it has no cables, displays or controls and several different mounting options are available.
The NoisePen does not require an additional Charger or Reader Unit – all interactions are done via USB to a PC and our outstanding powerful analysis and reporting software, Pulsar AnalyzerPlus:
All noise measurement programming and key functions such as start-stop, set up and configuration of the device, download, view and store measurements are performed before or on completion of field measurements.
Calibration of the NoisePen is also undertaken before taking a measurement with an acoustic calibrator and verified and logged via the software. The same process is carried out on return of the unit to your office.
Schedule a timed measurement at a date and time of your choice. You can also repeat a selected measurement pattern over a period of 7 days without having to reset the NoisePen.
Get a full map of Time History information to help you determine when key noise problems occur during a worker's day.
View all the essential data you need such LAeq, LEP,d, % Dose and TWA for compliance with occupational noise regulations
The additional ‘C’ frequency weighted peak Time History allows you to fully assess risks from impulsive noise in the workplace.
Save time and money too with this innovative device; just choose how many you want, the more you buy the more you save! Contact us directly for quotes of 6 or more NoisePens to get a discount.
NOTE: an acoustic calibrator is required for the field calibration and activation of the NoisePen. This is not included as standard. You can choose your calibrator here.

Noise at work
Typical use is for employees who are exposed to different noisy machinery over a working day, those working alone, in vehicle cabins, those in difficult to reach environments (in factories, warehousing), or involved in shift work or with un-predictable work patterns.
Pulsar NoisePen reporting software
The NoisePen personal noise exposure meter from Pulsar Instruments is supplied with the license-free AnalyzerPlus software program as standard. This software will provide you will full analysis of time history data and sound exposure levels to give you overall occupational noise exposure for your workers (against an 8 hour reference (Lep,d)) and a Noise at Work Report you can quickly check against noise action levels and limit values under the current Noise at Work Regulations.
We recommend that you test the software a few times with your PC once you take ownership of your noise measurement device before you go ahead with any formal noise exposure measurements. Check the PC System Requirementsneeded to run AnalyzerPlus.
Each Pulsar NoisePen measurement system is supplied with everything you need to conduct a fully compliant assessment of noise exposure of an individual worker.

Calibration certificates for the NoisePen
12 months warranty extendable to 7 years*
* To qualify for the 7-year warranty, you will need to send your Pulsar NoisePen back to us annually for service and recalibration whereupon the warranty is extended for a further 12 months for up to 7 years.
We offer a number of different mounting options for the NoisePen to suit your work environment:
NP1 Pocket Clip supplied as standard
NP2 Leather Strap Option
NP3 Velcro Strap Option 50cm long
NP4 Vertical Strap Option
Why not add an acoustic calibrator too so you can make sure your noise measurements remain compliant.
We bought two NoisePen units to check how much noise our employees had on our construction sites. We wanted something that was dead easy to use but our workers couldn't mess about with. Because of the kinds of work we do we can't have cables or anything hanging about so these are great. We were shown how to use the software and just plug the NoisePen into a laptop on site. HSE inspector was impressed too.
As a noise consultant, I often have to assess the noise exposure of employees in factories and industrial sites. Sometimes this is over just one shift but I also need to do it over a working week for some industries. The NoisePen is great for this because it measures noise dose for a whole week without the need to download measurements and reset in between - this makes things more efficient for me as I can leave the noispen with an operator on a monday for example and pick up on a friday. I like it too because the noisepen itself is it - there's no additional chargers or readers needed. All in all a real gem of a product that makes my job a heck of a lot easier.

I have previously had a different make of noise meter and dosimeter that was ancient. Receiving the Pulsar model has brought me into the 21st century!
I have had no difficulty transitioning; the kit is easy to use and self-explanatory.
Any problems I have had have been dealt with really well by customer services who have been friendly and helpful.

The NoisePen is available for hire.
Choose from a 1 or 2 Pen hire kit for this popular noise dosimeter. The Pulsar NoisePen can be pre-programmed in advance and sent out to workers who work remotely or work on different shifts to H&S staff so no one needs to be there to start and stop the meters.
The NoisePen comes in a protective case with an acoustic calibrator for field calibration.
