The standard CEL632A Sound Level Meter includes everything needed for a occupational noise survey other than a Calibrator (see below). Additional features are available for a more detailed analysis.
The most important of the accessories is the Calibrator. The regulations state that you should use one to check the function of the meter before making any measurements.
A Type 1 sound level meter is a little more accurate than a Type 2 model. It is also more expensive. If you are using the meter exclusively for occupational noise measurements then most regulations are quite clear: Type 2 is adequate. For this reason we recommend the Type 2 model.
However, if you need to make other noise measurements, such as noise emitting from your factory into the local environment, then it might be wise to go for a Type 1 meter. See the Applications page for more notes on environmental noise measurement.
The CEL632A is a data logging meter that does not require any additional software - when plugged into a computer it acts like a memory card. You can manually copy the data to your computer or load it into a spreadsheet program using a small conversion application. However, the Insight software makes this process more convenient, links the measurements to person, place or process, and presents the results graphically.
We recommend the Insight software with the CEL632A if you are going to take advantage of the Time History store as processing the large amounts of data in a spreadsheet can be rather time consuming.
The standard sound level meter microphone measures up to 140dB. For applications such as weapons testing, firing ranges and others that involve extremely high sound levels, a microphone is available that will measure up to 165dB.
Please see the High Level Microphone page for more information.
