Noise Meters can arrange for the service and calibration of Casella, Pulsar and Cirrus Sound Level Meters, Acoustic Calibrators and dBadge Noise Dosemeters. It is advisable to have the calibration of noise monitoring equipment checked each year or as required by any regulations that your measurements follow.
The standard calibration that we offer is traceable to British National Standards. The equipment will undergo detailed testing to ensure that it meets the relevant standards. For sound level meters and noise dosemeters, these tests include the frequency responses (A, C, Z), time responses (fast, slow, impulse) and linearity of the meter.
A free quotaton will be provided for any faults found during the calibration process before the work is carried out. If you decide not to go ahead then there will be no charge.
If you need a UKAS (NAMAS) accredited calibration then this can also be arranged for most of the Casella, Cirrus and Pulsar sound level meters, noise dosemeters and acoustic calibrators. A UKAS certificate is not included in the standard "Traceable Calibration" described above. Please contact us for more details and for a quotation.
As well as having your sound level meter verified, many regulations state that you should also use a sound level calibrator (or acoustic calibrator) to check the general performance of the meter just before making important measurements. The calibrator emits an accurate and stable tone. It is placed over the microphone so that the user can check the meter's performance or, with the more advanced meters, it can check itself.
