Sound Level Meter Calibration in accordance with BS EN 61672-2:2014
Sound Level Meter Calibration is available on all types and brands of instrument with our comprehensive Sound Level Meter Calibration Service based in Newcastle upon Tyne. Sound Level Meters are classified by two different types (Class or Type 1 and Class or Type 2) and can often be known as Noise Meters or Noise Dosimeters. The different classes refer to the accuracy level of the results given by the meter with Class 1 being the more accurate of the two options.
The use of Sound Level Meters is widespread across industry with the importance of issues such as Noise at Work Regulations, Building Acoustics and other forms of Environmental Monitoring being just some of the key reasons. Regular calibration of Sound Measuring Equipment is therefore essential in industry so users can be certain results being provided by the meters conform to the relevant British Standard BS EN61672-2:2014.
AMECaL’s Sound Level Meter Calibration Service performs two detailed checks on the equipment, one that measures the level of sound in the SI unit of Decibels (dB) and other using what is called an Acoustic Calibrator to check the general functions and operations of the meter. Measurement ranges and accuracies can vary from meter to meter, but the general rule of thumb is most Sound Meter Calibration is carried out within the frequency range of human hearing.
The calibration of Sound Level Meters makes up only one small part of our expertise in Sound. We also have the capability to calibrate other slightly different items such as Dosemeters, Dosimeters, Personal Sound Level Meters, Handheld Sound Level Meters, Sound Level Indicators, Acoustic Calibrators and Decibel Meters. AMECaL prides itself on providing Sound and all other calibration services with a certificate allowing our customers to trace the measurements back to National Standards.
