Hearing Protection Selection Solution Sound Meter with in-built HPD Database!
Castle Group Limited has developed a Sound Level Meter that incorporates advanced software to provide in-built hearing protection data as defined in the Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005. This means that after capturing data with the Castle Pro-DX Vocis, it can instantly show how much protection can be expected with any particular hearing protection device! This can then be directly compared with the Exposure Limit Value from the Regulations!
This removes all the erroneous and time-consuming calculations from the Safety Officer, and provides fast, accurate analysis of attenuation data. This Hearing Protection comparison can then be downloaded onto a PC via Castle’s dBdataPRO dedicated software, or directly onto a portable printer, a necessity that can be vital in any future litigation.
With real-time octave band analysis, twin measurement chanels and data-logging and 32 Mb of memory, the Castle Pro-DX Vocis Sound Meter can capture all the data required for a noise at work risk assessment in one measurement, making it ideal for the busy safety professional.
Neil Causer, Building Services Manager for Dudley Council said, “This is a really good piece of kit. We use one specific kind of hearing protection and the meter can tell us instantly whether it is suitable in any area, which is fantastic. The meter is also really easy to use, with simple and straight forward menus and in conjunction with the PC software, it allows us to keep permanent records, building on our database of risk assessments.
The Vocis has proved to be a true world-beater with sales on every continent. This is a tough, weather- and dust-proof sound level meter for even tougher applications, and is the perfect tool for noise at work risk assessments.
