Common uses for this dosimeter include assessment of noise exposure at work, occupational noise evaluation for safety, selection of hearing protection, and as a daily “noise watchdog”. The Type 4448 can measure LAeq and LCeq at once, and it uses the Noise Reduction Rating, Single Number Rating, and/or High, Middle, Low rating method to select the appropriate hearing protection from measured information.
The device also has an LCD display that clearly shows remaining battery and memory capacity, as well as key parameters during measurement. This noise dosimeter allows users to review data from the last measurement. By measuring all relevant noise parameters at the same time, it eliminates the need to conduct setup tasks, while the interchangeable mounting clips provide the best fit for the user’s activity and clothes. The unlicensed PC software Protector is available to set up Type 4448, download data after measurement, and calculate personal noise exposure.
