NK013 Assessment Starter System

This entry level system provides you with all the equipment you need to carry out assessments to The Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005 at the lowest possible cost.

Supplied with a class 2 integrating sound level meter, the GA216i, which is fully compliant with IEC 61672:2013 Class 2, and a single level class 2 acoustic calibrator, GA601, which meets IEC60942:2003 Sound Calibrators, Class 2/C.

Sound meter and calibrator are supplied a hard wearing carry case which is perfect to transport your equipment for noise at work assessments in the working environment.

The Castle GA216i sound level meter brings simplicity and power to the worlds of Noise at Work sound monitoring. From a basic sound pressure meter to full data-logging, combined sound and dosemeter, the range of systems covers a wide diversity of applications.

The Castle SONUS GA216I is a feature packed instrument that is fully compliant with IEC 61672-1:2002 Class 2, IEC 60651: 1979 Type 2 and IEC 60804: 2001 Type 2. This meter gives simultaneous Leq (rms. average) and peak measurement for assessments to the Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005. It has a high-specification measurement microphone and is cased in tough, crack resistant ABS plastic.

Mobility of instrumentation is essential for effective noise measurement. As the name indicates, the Castle SONUS ‘Pocket Meters’ pack all the necessary features into pocket sized proportions

The data-logging instruments have a USB connection and are compatible with the Castle dBdataPRO software, where data can be presented in the desired format and copied and pasted into other applications, so you don’t have to change the way you have always completed your reports.

There are a number of system packages available to suit many applications from simple tasks such as alarm monitoring, to a fully weatherproof system for long-term environmental monitoring, there are also dedicated packages for Noise at Work requirements.
