Some regulations state that you should check the calibration of the sound level meter before making a measurement. If you have order code P92-C or P92-K then you can do this using the Calibrator that is included.
The noise measurement process usually consists of:
The meter will automatically check its calibration and make any adjustments. If there are any major problems with the meter or microphone capsule it will report an error.
The results of the calibration are stored and can be viewed on the display or downloaded using the software provided.
The results of the measurement can be read from the display. The measurement is automatically stored so that it can be viewed again later or it can be downloaded to the software.
The Sound Level Meter can be set to make automatic and repeating noise measurements. To make long measurements easier the meter can be mounted on a standard camera tripod (option TR1).
The Sound Level Meter will now make repeating measurements, automatically storing each one. The resulting measurements can be viewed later on screen or downloaded to a computer using the software supplied.
The noise measurements can be viewed on the meter's display or you can connect the meter to a computer and download them using the software and cable that are included.
The Analyzer software can store the results for further analysis and present various noise reports. For more information please visit the software web page.
