Construction noise is a special application because it covers a range of tasks, so you need to be careful when choosing instrumentation to ensure you're opting for the right equipment.
This specific construction noise monitoring kit is dedicated to working within construction and is supplied with all the necessary features and accessories required to carry out such a wide variety of tasks, including:
If your unattended noise assessments require 1/3 Octave Bands you can upgrade this system either at the point of purchase, or remotely with an unlock code should you ever need it. This system can be deployed outside for up to a week at a time, recording frequency bands up to 10 times per second, whilst also recording audio events. If you have a specific set of requirements, this system's Smart Timers allow you to preset patterns of measurements.
The sound meter supplied with this noise monitor is the Castle dBAir sound meter. The dBAir sound meter is capable of audio recording and storing time histories down to 100ms and has smart timers.
Supplied with three years licence, this dBAir Noise Monitor uses Cloud noise analysis software. Hosted online, all you need to access it's entire software capabilities is an internet browser.
