Sound and vibration specialist Brüel & Kjær has just released the latest in its range of iconic sound level meters – B&K 2245 – providing a complete solution for basic noise measurements, while combining functionality, ease-of-use and versatility with the reliability and confidence that is ensured with the Brüel & Kjær brand.
The philosophy behind the class 1 B&K 2245 Sound Level Meter solution is to instil confidence and control in professionals whose work involves noise measurement tasks.
Product Manager, Michael Whiteman, explains, “For many sound level meter users, noise measurements are, although unavoidable, not necessarily something that they do every day. Our goal was to provide an intuitive solution that allows users to approach noise measurement tasks without any hint of trepidation – just get the job done and move on to the next assignment.”
The result is a product designed to simplify noise measurement and analysis – a complete, easy-to-use package that can be used as a stand-alone noise measurement device, or with a range of user-friendly mobile apps, each tailored to assist a specific job-to-do, including environmental noise measurement, exhaust noise level testing and workplace noise. The apps provide the exact parameters and functionality needed, bringing an entirely new level of efficiency and control to noise measurements. Each device can be licenced to more than one app, so switching tasks is as easy as switching apps.
Simple, smart, fast and easy
The sound level meter’s robust rubberized body provides a safe and secure grip, makes it dust and water resistant to IP55 and suitable for indoor and outdoor use. In addition, the well-defined user interface makes it easy to use.
To keep the sound level meter ready to use and protect measurement data, there is an optional smart docking station. The docking station is a high-speed charger that can transfer data stored on the sound level meter to a network, boosting ease of use and peace of mind.
Michael Whiteman believes that B&K 2245 will alleviate many user concerns. “We spoke to a number of non-expert users, and simplicity and ease of use are key. Infrequent use means people won’t remember confusing options, complicated settings or sometimes even the procedure for certain noise measurement tasks. They want a sound level meter that is purpose-built for their needs and that helps them work efficiently and more professionally. I am convinced that accurate noise measurement, analysis and documentation have never been so simple.”
