Recalibration de votre Sonomètre

Les sonomètres, dosimètres de bruit et calibreurs acoustiques Pulsar Instruments sont réputés pour leur durabilité et leur grande robustesse. Cependant, l'étalonnage annuel, dit "verification de routine" selon le standard IEC 61672 , est un facteur important garantissant le fonctionnement correct de votre matériel. 

Renvoyer votre équipement pour la recalibration de votre sonomètre vous donne l'occasion de bien vérifier les performances de votre décibelmètre ou dosimètre de bruit et de l'ajuster si nécessaire, ainsi vous obtenez également la garantie que les mesures que vous prenez sont correctes et conformes. Mise à jour firmware, vérification et/ou changement des piles et tout travail de réparation (à l'exception de ceux concernants les capsules de microphone et écrans d'affichages) sont également effectuées sans frais supplémentaires.

How often do you need to recalibrate your measurement instruments?

You should recalibrate your measurement instruments as often as the manufacturer outlines in their warranty and guarantee information.

The United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) has also issued a guide (LAB23) on calibration of Sound Meters and Calibrators in which it states recommended calibration intervals for various types of equipment, some of which are listed here:

  • Personal Dosemeters - 1 year
  • Microphones (Reference and Working) - 2 years
  • Sound Meters (tested to BS7580, where applicable) - 2 years
  • Sound Meters built to IEC 61672:Part 1 - 2 years
  • All other Sound Meters - 1 year
  • Acoustic Calibrators (Mechanical or Electronic) - 1 year

Why should I return my meter for a service?

Pulsar Instruments sound level meters, noise dosemeters, and acoustic calibrators are well known for being robust and hard-wearing and come with a 1-year warranty. However, recalibrating and servicing your instruments is an important factor of ensuring your equipment continues to function correctly; this is called in IEC standard 61672 for sound level meters or ‘Routine Verification’.

We recommend that you return your noise meter and acoustic calibrator for service and recalibration on a yearly basis so you can have total confidence in your noise measurements. If you do, we will extend your warranty period for a further 12 months free of charge up to 7 years. The Pulsar Warranty includes any faults on the sound level meter and accidental case damage. Please note the warranty does not cover accidental damage to the microphone or damage to the display.

Regular service also allows us to make sure that the firmware and hardware on your instrument are updated to the latest versions. After recalibration of your instruments, we issue you with a current and valid calibration certificate. We perform all calibrations in accordance with recommendations and requirements of the appropriate International Standards and typically check over 100 different parameters.
