The noise measurements can be sorted by Person, Location, Project or Instrument (the meter on which the measurements were made). This is convenient for noise at work assessments, allowing you to quickly see all the measurements made on one individual or in one area for example.
Sections of the graph can be marked to pick out areas of interest. In the image on the right the period during which the machinery was operating has been selected, allowing the software to calculate the sound levels during that time.
Most screens in the software have a Quick Report button so you can create printed reports based on what is currently displayed.
Although these reports can be printed to paper, you can choose instead to export them to one of a number of standard formats, including PDF.
