The main noise measurements taken by the doseBadge depend on the
settings and the regulations being followed:
- OSHA and related regulations: TWA, Lavg
- ISO 3dB and related regulations: Lep,d, Leq
The doseBadge also measures, calculates and stores other parameters,
such as Dose %, Peak , and Pa2hr, which are needed for some noise
The doseBadge has dual channels, and can have Channel
1 configured to have different exchange (doubling) rate, time response,
threshold, criterion level and criterion time. Channel 2 is fixed
to the common ISO 3dB settings. This means that you can work to regulations
such as OSHA but still record the ISO parameters too.
The main measurement parameter (Lavg or Leq, depending on settings)
is stored every minute, giving a graph of the sound level over time
when downloaded to a computer. The C Weighted Peak is also stored
every minute for similar graphing.
