Select hearing protection now available thanks to latest Cirrus' doseBadge5 update

The doseBadge5 noise dosimeter is now available with octave bands filters allowing for effective and accurate selection that enhances employee hearing protection.

cirrus doseBadge5This new function runs alongside the doseBadge5's ongoing assessment of noise exposure but allows for more detailed analysis of noise sources with the additional data helping H&S managers select hearing protection or review noise control measures.

This new feature is just the latest in a number of key upgrades to the doseBadge5 which was launched in 2016. Additional features include: wireless Bluetooth® connectivity, scheduled measurement timers, tamper detection as well as extensive data logging and analysis.

James Tingay, Cirrus Research Marketing Manager, said: "Having insight into the frequency content of measured noise levels can be critical when there's a need to select appropriate PPE.
"Not only does this new feature provide details of the overall Leq in each octave band, it also stores a detailed time history or noise profile of each band throughout the measurement. It is perfect all-round noise dosimeter that can meet the needs of even the most demanding of Noise at Work scenarios.

"Overall, the doseBadge5 provides an extensive range of occupational noise parameters and is the ideal tool for noise exposure assessments against the Noise at Work Regulations."
