PCE Instruments’ PCE-430 class 1 data-logging sound level meter meets IEC 60651:1979, IEC 60804:2000, IEC 61672-1:2013, ANSI S1.4-1983, and ANSI S1.43-1997 requirements. This portable high-accuracy sound level meter has a large, easy-to-read illuminated LCD screen that displays the sound pressure level (SPL) numerically and graphically in real time. Even the slightest difference in frequency is detected thanks to octave band filtering.

This handheld meter also functions as a data logger, recording measurements at an adjustable interval from 1 s to 24 h and storing the recorded measurement data to a microSD card memory. The SD card can be removed from the meter and inserted into the SD card reader of a PC. The decibel meter can also be connected directly to a PC via USB. The provided PC-compatible software allows for quick and easy data analysis.

This device measures from 22 db(A) to 136 db(A) at a frequency of 3 Hz to 20 kHz. The meter features A, B, C, and Z frequency and fast, slow, and impulse time weightings. Professionals commonly use the PCE-430 decibel meter to ensure compliance with environmental noise regulations and workplace noise permissible exposure limits. It is also ideal for airport and air force base noise monitoring programs.
