doseBadge Reader

Each Complete Kit is supplied with a Reader unit. One Reader can be used to control as many doseBadges as you need.

The Reader is used to carry out the following functions:

  • Reset and Calibrate the doseBadge
  • Start the doseBadge running (after fitting it to the worker's shoulder)
  • Stop the doseBadge at the end of the day
  • Read and Display the noise measurement results
  • Download to computer

Calibrating the Dosimeter

The Reader has a built in Calibrator, operating at 1 kHz, 114 dB.

To calibrate the dosimeter, simply push it into the calibration cavity and press the Cal button on the Reader. The calibration process is automatic and the results are recorded, along with any automatic adjustments that are made.

Configuring the doseBadge

The Reader unit can also be used to configure the doseBadge settings. The doseBadge can be configured to meet the ISO Q=3 (for European regulations) and OSHA Q=5 (for the American standards).

The Exchange Rate, Criterion Level, Criterion Time, Threshold and Slow Time Weighting can be set individually in order to meet other standards such as those published by MSHA, AICHE and ACGIH. See the Noise Regulations page for more information.

As the doseBadge has Dual Channels, it can have Channel 1 set to OSHA, MSHA, AICHE, ACGIH or similar, with Channel 2 fixed to measure with the common ISO 3dB settings.
