Casella CEL Inc. announced it has made a number of enhancements that add more functionality to its CEL-630 sound level meter, one of the smallest and easy to use devices of its kind currently available on the market.
Among the latest modifications is the addition of 'Audio Recording', which has a number of uses and applications including the ability to record voice notes before or after a measurement, allowing the operator to annotate a measurement without needing to write anything down. In addition, new 'Data Markers' allow information to be tagged during measurement and marked when downloaded with the corresponding audio captured, either because the operator wishes to note something of significance or to remove extraneous artifacts . For added convenience, all audio recordings can be played back via headphones or downloaded to a PC.
Another new feature is the ability for event capture to be triggered from a pre-set decibel level threshold, particularly useful for unattended noise monitoring to capture events of interest when noise reaches a certain level. Events CEL-630 can be triggered from multiple parameters or conditions and the source audio is stored with the event.
Incorporating the latest digital technology, the CEL-630 has a single measurement range of up to 140dB, with no set-up adjustment required when obtaining and viewing different noise parameters.
