dBadge 2 Noise Dosimeter

dbadge2 Noise Dosimeter

Technical Specifications

For occupational noise and hearing protection applications, it is essential that the dosimeter you use meets the correct standards. The dosimeter standards are based on the sound level meter standards ANSI S1.4 and IEC61672, but are specific to this particular application. The relevant standards are:

  • ANSI S1.25 Personal Noise Dosimeters
  • IEC 61252 Personal Sound Exposure Meters

The dBadge2 meets and exceeds these standards. It is suitable for occupational noise assessments in line with the USA and Canadian regulations, European regulations, UK HSE guidelines, Australian, New Zealand and any other regulations we are aware of.

As many parameters are configurable, the dBadge2 should be able to satisfy any regulations. If you are unsure then please contact us and we will check it out for you.
