Description

Assessor 82CA Industrial Noise Level Meter (Class 2)

Industrial noise level meter

Expanding on the basic models in the Assessor range, the 82CA effectively combines affordable noise measurement and compliance with International Industrial Noise Directives.

This integrating sound level meter is the ideal instrument for those people who are happy to use the established HML method (High, Medium, Low) of Hearing Protection Prescription and do not want an instrument with 1:1 Octave Band Filters.

All hearing protection (PPE) should be supplied by the manufacturer with attenuation (reduction) values for each of the H, M and L values. By knowing the ‘C’ and ‘A’ weighted Leq values and the difference between them you can use either a spreadsheet or simple formula to select suitable hearing protection for your workforce.

C-A Measurement Mode

By just pressing the C-A button, the instrument will automatically switch to ‘C-A’ Measurement Mode. A Blue indicator shows that you are now measuring in C-A mode rather than the normal Broadband mode.

The integrating sound level meter will make an Leq measurement with dB(C) weighting (LCeq) and will continue until the average level has settled. When the level has settled, the instrument will switch to dB(A) and repeat the process with ‘A’ weighting.

When this level has also settled, the instrument will display the LCeq, LAeq and in large digits the resultant LCeq – LAeq value on the screen. Making taking this HML method of measurement has never been easier, as everything is done in an automatic cycle for you.

Data logging

There is also an option to upgrade the meter to include data logging so that you can store your measurements to the internal memory and then download to create reports using the Pulsar Analyser software.

1 review for Assessor 82CA Industrial Noise Level Meter (Class 2)

  1. DHL Supply Chain

    Following a claim we were defending, we were asked by our lawyers to supply noise measurement samples for a particular area in our factory. At this point, none of our managers were trained in noise assessment and it looked like we would have to pay out thousands of pounds to hire a consultant to give us all of the required information. After attending the Safety & Health Expo in Birmingham, we decided to purchase the Pulsar Assessor kit at just over one thousand pounds and arranged for Pulsar to present a Noise Awareness training day at our site in Warrington. We carried out our own assessment the next day after the training, downloaded all of the details onto the database supplied with the equipment, which gave us the measurements over an 8 hour period in minutes, graphs explaining the different levels at given times and this helped us identify if there were any issues in the problem area and even the type of PPE we would have to issue. The site then sent off all of this information to our lawyers who successfully defended the case saving the business in excess of seven thousand pounds.
