SoundEar II Industrial®
Popular noise display for factories and industry. Clearly shows when staff should reduce noise levels or fit hearing protection.
RED warning when noise level exceeds a pre-set limit.
YELLOW when nearing limit.
GREEN confirms monitoring.
For use in:
SoundEar II Industrial®
Find out exactly when to use ear protection
A problem in many industrial environments is that noise is not always present at high levels. This causes complacency among workers.
Firstly, they are often instructed that Hearing Protection must always be worn in designated areas. These areas are marked by passive signage - “Hearing Protection must be worn”. The signage must be obeyed even when noise levels are low.
Secondly, workers can’t be expected to identify noise levels that exceed their daily safe dose when noise comes and goes at regular intervals or contains short bursts or peak noise levels.
The solution is a visual key that teaches employees to recognise when noise levels are dangerous so they can take hearing protection steps or move away from the noise.
The SoundEar II Industrial® is just such a visual key. When noise levels exceed a preselected level a large red silhouette of a head with ear muffs is illuminated.
Couple this with the optional USB SoundLOG and real time 24 X 7 X 365 day noise exposure readings can be collected. A record of the noise levels reached over a day, job or up to 4 weeks of continuous levels. This data can be used to prove noise levels generated and employee noise exposure levels.
If the source of noise needs to be indicated in a different location, an optional microphone can be connected via cable up to 20 meters from the SoundEar II.
Provides evidence of compliance and data logging.
A small USB module plugs into the base of the SoundEar II. Saves measurement made by the SoundEar II for up to 4 weeks. Transfer the data from the SoundLog Module to the computer.
With SoundLog software, you can see the measurements for up to 4 weeks on a ready-to-print graph or cut and paste into your reports.
Displaying the sound measurements on a graph across time, it is possible to see exactly how many decibels the sound level reaches and when. In this way, the graph can show where and when noise problems arise, and compares the sound conditions for different weekdays or times of day. The knowledge obtained from this graph makes it easier to accommodate periods of increased noise strain in advance.
SoundLog visualizes and documents the room noise level, thus providing a qualified substitute for previous, less accurate, noise reports.
