The Nova Models 45 and 46 include the data logging module and come complete with the AnalyzerPlus software. This can be used to configure the meter, download measurements, organise the measurements and present reports.
You can use the software to:
Most of these can be done from the meter's keypad, of course with the exception of updating the internal software.
The noise measurements can be sorted by Person, Location, Project or Instrument (the meter on which the measurements were made). This is convenient for occupational noise assessments, allowing you to quickly see all the measurements made on one individual or in one area for example.
The Nova Models 45 and 46 measure the Octave Band spectrum along with all the other occupational and environmental noise parameters. These Octave Band measurements can be used to calculate the sound level at the ear when wearing different hearing protection. This is essential when issuing hearing protectors to workers as it is important to avoid over-protecting or under-protecting.
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.
