New sound level meters from PCE Instruments

PCE Instruments recently launched three brand-new and highly accurate class 1 and 2 sound level meters. These have been designed to tackle the wide-spread problem of noise at the workplace which can cause health issues. However, with their many functions, they can be used in many other areas of application.

An alarming number of employees worldwide has to deal with unacceptable noise levels at work, which often causes severe hearing problems that cannot be reversed. Several rules and regulations are there to prevent these problems. In order to take the right precautions, noise must become measurable. This is where manufacturers of high-end test instruments like PCE Instruments come into play.

The recently launched PCE-428, PCE-430 and PCE-432 noise meters can do A, B, C and Z frequency weightings as well as fast, slow and impulse time weightings which makes them highly helpful when it comes to assessing noise nuisance at the workplace, traffic noise, industrial noise, etc. For companies which have to stick to certain rules and regulations, it is important to know that the new SPL meters are in line with the standards GB/T 3785.1-2010, IEC 60651:1979, IEC 60804:2000, IEC 61672-1:2013, ANSI S1.4-1983 and ANSI S1.43-1997. The PCE-428 is a class 2 model whereas the PCE-430 and PCE-432 are class 1 models.

The standard versions of the noise level meters are with 1/1 octave band but optionally with 1/3 octave band. The user can set the alarm threshold. The sound meters can calculate SPL, LEQ, Max, Min, Peak, SD, SEL, and E values. Data can saved to a Micro SD card and evaluated via a PC software which is included in the delivery. The new PCE sound level meters come with a microphone, a wind noise suppressor (foam ball), a USB cable, a mains adaptor, a factory calibration certificate according to ISO 9001, a user manual and a carrying case.

PCE Instruments, with headquarters in Germany and offices in Chile, France, Spain, Italy, China, Hong Kong, the Netherlands, Turkey, Poland, the UK and the US, manufactures and sells test instruments, control systems, laboratory and weighing equipment for a vast range of different purposes and applications, to a great extent under the label ‘PCE Instruments’, but also from other renowned producers. PCE also provides pre- and aftersales technical advice as well as calibration and re-calibration services.
