The Airwave application runs on a smart phone or tablet and communicates with the dBadge 2 noise dosimeter using Bluetooth wireless technology.
The most useful aspect of the Airwave application is that you can control measurements and check progress without disturbing the worker.
This application works with the following models:
You can start, stop or pause the noise measurement without disturbing the worker or having to invade their personal space.
The display is color coded green/blue/red to indicate the run/pause/stop state.
The Airwave application can view multiple dBadge2 noise dosimeters at the same time, giving a quick overview of all units that are in range.
In the example here, both dosimeters have had their measurements stopped - probably at the end of the working shift. The top measurement is for a dosimeter set up to show the OSHA noise measurements, as commonly used in the USA. The bottom one shows an ISO measurements, which is used throughout Europe.
Note that the dBadge2 measures all parameters, for ISO, OSHA and other regulations, but just displays the parameters that you need for your regulations.
Details of a measurement can be viewed at the end of the run or at any time during the run, without interrupting the process.
In this example (zoom in for a better view) the measurement has been running for 1 hour 50 minutes so far and you can see the projected exposure assuming a working time of around 8 hours. You can also check the memory and battery status to ensure sufficient capacity to complete the measurement.
The measurement summary can be sent directly from the phone via email, or copied to other applications via the clipboard.
