Durham Instruments supplies numerous measurement solutions by Brüel & Kjær. For example, the 2245-W sound-level and vibration meter has the durability for almost any work environment. It comes with a complete, focused tool set for monitoring occupational noise-related concerns like noise-exposure surveys and risk mitigation for noise-induced hearing loss.
For a full implementation of job-based noise-exposure assessment, the 2245-W works with the accompanying Work Noise Partner mobile app.
For job-oriented noise-exposure surveys
The features include a colour LCD screen with a bright, clean layout, which shows the most important information with a clear indication of measurement status with a colour header, and a measurement-status light ring visible from any angle. The 2245-W also has a built-in Li-Ion battery that typically provides more than 14 hours of Wi-Fi-enabled power, 16 gigabytes of built-in storage for measurements and annotations, integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Low Energy for connection to mobile and computer apps, and a single, weatherproof USB-C connector for data transfer and charging.
Work Noise Partner can be downloaded to a Smartphone, on which all app capabilities are controlled wirelessly. The app organizes measurements into tasks and exposure groups while allowing workday noise-exposure calculations, and a task duration is assigned to calculate a dose. Users can embed images, text and voice notes, and videos with the measurements through the app interface. After the survey ends, the data can easily be transferred to a PC. The software is pre-configured with all of the necessary tools to minimize the requirement for extra training.
Among the most common applications for this instrument are task- or job-oriented noise-exposure surveys according to ISO 9612, prevention of hearing loss, managing noise exposure, ensuring compliance with regulations, and measurements for hearing-protection selection. To add other task-focused capabilities for other scenarios, other app licences can be added to the meter, like Exhaust Noise Partner and Enviro Noise Partner.
The 2245-W is a versatile product that works for many industries. Durham Instruments recommends it for general manufacturing, aerospace, automation, food processing, forestry, the medical field, the military, mining, packaging, power generation, alternative energy, and transportation.
