Castle Brings new Dosemeter to the Market
Microphone In Real Ear Dosimeter System
A novel dosemeter is now available from Castle boasting a wide range of features, but perhaps most interesting of all, the ability to measure sound inside a human ear! The 102 dosemeter will not only measure real-time octave bands, has two microphone inputs and is tiny, but has a special microphone designed to fit into the ear canal to measure where it has not previously been possible to do so!
The instrument itself features real-time octave bands, data-logging of sound levels for Leq, Lepd and some environmental parameters. It also has two separate connections on it for independent microphone inputs to enable simultaneous measurements; a feature particularly suited to it function as an in-ear monitor as it is possible to measure inside, and outside the ear at the same time.
The ear-canal microphone is especially designed and tested to compensate for the shape of the human ear and produces calibrated results that can be used for noise at work risk assessments. Simon Bull, MD for Castle Group said, “This is a true first and allows measurements where it’s never been possible before. This is particularly useful inside headsets in call centres and helmets for police motorcyclists or emergency service personnel. It great that it is such a powerful dosemeter as well.”
