The doseBadge meets the requirements of both the American (OSHA, MSHA, ACGIH, etc) and the European (ISO) measurement standards. As it is not actually possible to meet both at the same time it has two measurement channels.
The doseBadge also meets the requirements of the US DOE, ACGIH, AICHE and MSHA regulations and guidelines.
The selection of which standard to measure by is done using the simple menu in the Reader. The doseBadges are shipped pre-configured to the relevant standard, so making the changes should not normally be necessary.
The most common settings are:
The doseBadge system meets the following standards:
IEC 61252:1993 Personal Sound Exposure Meters
ANSI S1.25:1991 Personal Noise Dosimeters
To satisfy the ISO measurement standards and the European Noise at Work regulations, the doseBadge measures the following parameters: LAeq, LEPd, LCPeak, SEL, % Dose, Exposure Pa²h, Estimated % Dose, Estimated Pa²h.
To satisfy the OSHA measurement standards, the doseBadge measures the following parameters: LAVG, TWA and% Dose. The exchange rate is set to Q=5.
It can easily be set to measure both OSHA style 5dB measurements and ISO 3dB (for European Noise at Work) measurements at the same time as it is a dual-channel dosimeter.
