High-performance decibel meter without the high price tag!
The Pulsar Nova Model 42 (Class 2) is the perfect choice instrument for carrying out basic noise level assessments in the workplace. A class 2 meter is all that is needed for most applications; however, if you require increased precision, then the class 1 version might suit.
As with all the meters in the Nova range, this meter is compliant with International Occupational Noise or Industrial Hygiene Noise Directives and can be used as part of a company Health and Safety strategy.
Each Nova Decibel Meter has been designed to be easy to use while still providing you with the fundamental parameters required to comply with legislation. This entry-level instrument can be upgraded to become a data logging meter, giving you a very versatile instrument for all your noise level measurements.

Global Training Providers –
Delivering first class Occupational Health and Safety consultancy and training requires constant attention to detail, forward thinking and the ability to supply your clients with the best possible service, package and relationship. As a business we have key clients within logistics and the commercial world. As you well know winning these contracts and maintaining them is all down to supplying the customer’s needs in a bespoke manner. I genuinely believe that this is only achievable delivering the best possible service to the customer and understanding their specific requirements and finding solutions to tailor to their industry. On behalf of GTP Ltd (Global Training Providers) I would like to thank Sarah, Mike and the rest of the Pulsar team for a fantastic, Professional first class service you provide. From the initial telephone conversation to Pulsar where I spoke to the technical staff who were polite, professional, friendly, attentive and efficient in meeting the customer s requirements was impressive. Sarah you have an extensive knowledge base of all Noise Metering equipment and were able to direct GTP Ltd to specific noise meters required for the business in a commercial and environmental capacity. The follow up sales by yourself and Mike including the one day familiarisation course with the equipment was just superb. Your wealth of knowledge in the acoustic world, professionalism, commitment, passion and experience really did shine through. You demonstrated to me what a truly professional company Pulsar Instruments really are by supplying quality built precession instruments (which have been utilised in many trying conditions since). The after sales and technical advice supplied since has been invaluable. To be a customer and experience such a fantastic start to finish service like this is not only rare in today s society but a true credit to Sarah Brack and her team.
Thank you very much ‘Pulsar’
